    All they wanted was my transcript as well and everything that I could possibly transfer over did, I will only be taking the required 32 credits through them.

    I couldn't agree with you more, but you put it in words better than I ever could have. I chose my NLN accredited little old ADN program with 100% NCLEX passage rate and all MSN prepared nursing instructors from UCSF and USF (to name a two) because it was a great fit for me, I was a single teen parent working and paying my way through school and could not afford a huge tuition price tag. I would not change that experience for the world and am glad I had it, so I never look down on anyone for the route they chose to get their education.

    Hello
    I am currently doing the RN to BSN AP program but i need math 1302 and Stats I was thinking of taking the 8 week course online. I currently work full-time but at night. I have been reading that math 1302 is horrible to take through UTA. Has anyone recently finished this course? Please share your thoughts I appreciate any feedback. I m horrible with math I hate Math all together and have been trying to avoid taking Math.:***:Well I am close to the end of the road of my BSN and I need math so I can take Nursing Research :/ and move forward to capstone and finish. I also heard you have to pay for a proctor. Thanks for any responses.
    Off topic from your original question, but how do you like UTA's RN to BSN program? How long will it take you to finish? I'm applying and would just like some feedback from actual students.

    You don't have to be '"partnered" to get into RN-BSN at UTA. I live out of state and I am in the program.
    I am applying to the RN to BSN and wanted to know how do you like the program, so far?

    My program requires a 75 to pass, but once you fail a class your done, there is no taking the class over next semester. We do not have plus or minuses and our semester is lumped into one giant class of 10 units, so depending on your grade it can really kill your GPA. I just wish some weight was given to clinical and class assignments, but those are not graded just required. So, your entire grade is based on your 4 exams throughout the semester. We only start in the fall with 32 students in a cohort.

    I am in the process of applying to Brandman for Fall 2014, but have hit a snag in their prerequisites. I have nothing, but A's and B's while in the nursing program, but received a C in chemistry prior to my acceptance and chemistry for some reason is the only science course they look at for admission. Does anyone who has applied know a way around having to take Chemistry again? Instructor recommendations? Testing? Anything so that I do not have to waste $1000 to take it again to meet their B average.... Thank you

    So Iv'e been trying to get a head start on the job hunt by looking into local New Grad programs to see if I could do anything now to better my chances of finding a position after graduation. Today while looking I noticed that many hospitals differentiated their New Grad program from their Nurse residency such as UCSD what is the difference?

    Do some more research and keep in mind everything happens in time. I was the same way as you are at 20 with a new baby at home. I was a biological science major (premed) and most of my classes did not transfer over because the science emphasis is different as is the math. Just look into your options and check with your hospital. Make sure this is absolutely what you want and if so don't rush it everything happens in time. Best of luck

    I was the class clown that failed an entire year dang near finding out I was going to graduate the day before I walked with about a 2.30 GPA. Yeah I pretty much hated high school and it showed. . .

    Chemistry was the worst semester of my freaking life! That's actually why I chose to just get my ADN instead of BSN because I didn't want to take another semester of chem it was absolutely horrible!

    That's funny I do it all the time! Lol I do not graduate until June 2014, but I do just to try and get a direction for which way I would like to go after graduation. I think it's a good idea to know what your options are so your not stumoed when school ends about what you want to do.

    It depends on you! I know some students who have graduated from my program and worked fulltime with children, but they were married and had help. I have more help now, but was a single parent I worked high part time (busy job with projects and dealines), school fulltime, and have a 7 year old with special needs. I don't know how I made it through with an 89%, but I did. You can make it. I feel for your situation because I also have to work because bills need to get paid. You just have to start and feel it out and adjust as bumps in the road come up. Best of luck!

    Depending on what you want to do with your career I know most places have gotten rid of LPNs and are only using Rns when it comes to acute care settings. All of my LPN friends are in SNF and LTCF; def more flexibilty and upward movement associated with RN. Best of luck!
