I am planning on doing pre reqs at TCC this Spring and Summer to apply for (hopefully) admittance to the OU summer 2012 Accelerated BSN (I already have a BS). Well, I went up to Rogers State in Claremore today to speak with someone about their programs (I need a plan B in case I don't get in to OU because it is so competitive) and the possibility of my classes transferring from my 1st bachelors degree. I was shocked when I left. I had already done my research of the pre reqs and how to apply, but what really shocked me was how the lady really would't speak in depth with me (even though I called ahead to make sure I could speak with someone) and what she said about OU. She was asking why I was taking certain classes and I told her, "Those courses are required to be admitted to OU and right now I am exploring all my options." She replied by saying, " I would think twice before you consider OU. We have so many students that leave their program to come to ours ('which is the best in the state'). Its incredibly hard and fast paced. They are so disorganized and just be prepared to have your classes taught by really incompetent and lazy people. You will have to do so much work yourself." She carried on until I said, "It is a Bachelor's program, so I expect it to be MUCH harder and since it is 2 years crammed into 14 months that it why its called the 'Accelerated Program.' I am completely aware the program is hard and fast-paced and I would expect that it would be VERY demanding. I also think you should know the OU advisor said I should also look into your program because the nurses that graduate form your program are highly respected." She then kinda bit her tongue and said, "Well, I wasn't trying to talk bad about OU, I just thought you might want to know." This left a bad taste in my mouth. I know this in one woman, but I feel so turned off by RSU because of this ONE woman! When I went to OU the advisor sat and spoke with me for 1 and 1/2 hours and squeezed me in and had my transcripts evaluated in ONE DAY while the woman at RSU made me stand and talk to her and wouldn't even evaluate my courses until I, "took the dosage calculation course." It makes it difficult to apply to various programs when they have such different prerequisites.
Any help or advice on RSU would be greatly appreciated. I really would rather go to OU because I live in Tulsa and its shorter and a bachelors degree, but I have to keep my options open. Thanks for the help!
