    Ohsu - Ocne/bsn

    I think you still apply to OHSU! I had the same stats, 3.9, previous degree, previous career. I know finances are tough but something always works out. They have a top notch program and if you want to further your education, I think it might help you get into their advanced programs. The instructors are phenomenal with such amazing backgrounds. Private message me if you want to chat more. This is rare that I'm on here with my school load so it may take me a bit to get back to you.

    What apps do you use for nursing school?

    Thanks!!! Any thoughts on recording apps for lecture. There are free ones but are they useful? I saw Recorder Pro (something like that) for $.99. Anyone have any experience with it?

    I was getting dizzy just seeing that smiley...I had to delete it! :) Thanks, superV Thanks TraumaRus for the re-direct to other thread. There's so much good info on this site, I don't always know where to start.

    Sorry, that pom pom smiley is a bit obnoxious!

    Thanks so very much!!! This is exactly what I'm looking for! Keep 'em coming everyone!
  8. Greetings! I apologize if there's already a thread on here somewhere regarding apps. If so, please let me know and I'll check it/them out. I start school in about a month and finally upgraded to an iPhone. There are so many apps and I wondered if anyone would mind sharing what apps they actually use for nursing school, free or paid. Thanks for your response! Jtpdx

    What choice should I make, Lindfield or PCC OCNE?

    Congrats, Lila!!! I'm one of your classmates and look forward to meeting you! I believe Andie74 has been in contact and is trying to set something up soon! And about being giddy...I'm still unable to wipe the cheesy grin off of my face. Jtpdx

    Am I crazy?

    Hi Andie74, Congrats on making your decision regarding OHSU! I will be one of your classmates! I'm not sure how to private message on this web site, but wanted to introduce myself and chat about what we need to do prior to September. This is an exciting journey we're about to take! jtpdx

    At what age did you decide on nursing?

    I'm 40 and start nursing school in the Fall. I have a previous bachelor's degree so this will be my second career. While I was a little intimidated going back to school AT MY AGE, I was happy to discover that I was never the oldest in my class. It's the best decision I've ever made. :-)

    Escorting patients to labor

    I think that's a little overkill. I used to work in an admitting department and we always took the patients up to the floor, after calling L&D to let them know we were on our way. If they were in active labor, we brought them up in a wheelchair. Personally, I loved taking them up to the floor and never had an incident.

    OHSU BSN PDX program applicants - 2010

    Curious Me- Not sure how to send you a private message, still figuring out this Web site. I'll get there! I'm starting the BSN program at PDX campus, wondering what words of wisdom you could share. I did really well in my pre-reqs as well, but wasn't working full-time and carrying the same load you were. I have a ton of questions that I could wait until orientation to ask, but see that you have some really good insight and are level-headed (not OMG, it's so hard, it's impossible, etc) Let me know if you're up to answering some questions or just giving me a general overview of what to expect for the next 3 years, i.e. when do clinicals start, etc. Please free to send a note just to me. Thx!

    OHSU BSN PDX program applicants - 2010

    31?!? You are a spring chicken! I won't divulge my age, but I've got some years on you! :) Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I'd go back for another degree, but here I go! You have plenty o' time!

    OHSU BSN PDX program applicants - 2010

    Since I started this thread, I thought I should give my status. In all humbleness, I was accepted and will accept as this is my only option this go around. And, it's a good one! I didn't have the math pre-req met (it had expired) so I wasn't able to apply to the community colleges. Hoping for the best to everyone, and if it's not this year, keep at it! As the old saying goes, if at first you don't succeed, try, try again.
