    About UTA, people... I sent my transcripts. RN to BSN Online Admissions counselor said it has to show online, on MYMAVS (your personal web page inside the UTA website), so she could evaluate it and see what I need to go on. It has been one month now, and the trancripts are still NOT online. I called their Registrar more than 10 times, and all they say is "It will be online in 3 bussinesses days, we have your trancripts here. I guess they need to take math class, because they have no idea what 3 days means!! Actually, they knew very well about numbers when I had to pay 50 dolars to have transcripts evaluated. So, just some info for you out there... :-)

    The same exact thing is happening to me. Because of that, I am looking into UT Tyler. They have a similar RN-BSN program that can be completed in 12 months (rather than UTA's 13 months). UT Tyler also has an RN-MSN that has many (if not most) classes online; the good thing about this program is you can stop at BSN if you want. There are quite a few good schools here in Texas:
    -Texas A&M Health Science Center (RN-BSN online)
    -UT Arlington (RN-BSN online...13 months long)
    -UT Tyler (RN-BSN online, RN-MSN hybrid...12 months long)
    -Texas Tech (RN-BSN online...2 semesters)

    I am loving WGU so far.. almost 2 months in and just finishing up 31 credits. I'm at about 100 a unit now, which will only go down as I take more classes.

    Grand Canyon is my vote. 14 months with not a lot of extra fluff classes.

    I was googling around & saw a mention of a Lamar University. No clue how "good" it is, but it's $7500.

    It might be TX only though.

    No you don't have to be in TX for Lamar, but there are some exceptions. The following is from their website.

    Lamar University has approval or has confirmed that Lamar University has been granted an exemption to offer online degree programs with the exception of the following states: Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.
