Avoid the RN-BSN program if you graduated fromBrightNursing
Avoid the RN-BSN program if you graduated from a non-regional accredited nursing school. The nurse program recruiter told me that all of my nursing credits from nursing school would be accepted and transfer over toward my BSN degree, she lied. The nursing department director was all hands on at first, now she cannot return phone calls or emails, she just too busy to bother with you. I was set to graduate December 2013. I was informed by the nursing department director that I had all my credits and to get ready to walk the stage. Well, she called me 1 week before graduation and informed me that I was 2 hours short of my credits and that I would have to take a OLLU class to make up the credits, and that I could not attend a junior university because the credits had to be OLLU credits. I had to pay $1600.00 out of pocket for a class. Conveniently the nursing department director assigned an additional nursing class, and did not allow me to pick my own class. Once again, do not attend OLLU if you have graduated from a non-regionally accepted nursing school.

OLLU has sold meBrightOther
OLLU has sold me a worthless degree. The former academic advisor lied to me as well as the former president of the Woodlands location. I will NEVER be able to get a clerical job or any other job for that matter in a hospital.

I graduated with a B.Quite BrightOther
I graduated with a B.A. in Human Sciences. I am still working in the same, lousy 10.00 per hour job. The former president of our campus lied about a partnership with St.Luke's Hospital. I can't even get a job interview anywhere. Also, if a student commits plagiarism, all they have to do is bribe them and they can be reinstated. Really??? This college is pathetic. RUN!!!! DO NOT ATTEND OLLU. I will be speaking to students and parents on college day and will be telling them NOT to send their son/daughter to a college that deceives and outright lies to the students.
