    Do you know if Brookhaven is still a satellite for El Centro? I currently attend Northlake and I know that they are, but on Brookhaven's site they still list themselves as satellite. If they are, why aren't they listed on the application as a choice?

    No, they have their own nursing program.

    Katie is correct, who knows why they still have that.

    Here's the correct URL for the updated Broohaven RN program:

    I wish UT -Austin had an online RN-BSN program, I'd much rather do my RN-BSN through UT!
    Why do you prefer UT-Austin over UTA?

    lol... Just because I'd rather be a Longhorn than a Maverick.

    Really it doesn't matter. I may end up doing neither, and picking some Uni of another state that has an online RN-BSN. LOL

    Maybe I can transfer to an HCA hospital in Roundrock or Austin after my oldest daughter graduates from high school.

    Then we both can graduate from UT! That's where she wants to go anyway, it would just save me money.....no dorm cost! LOL!

    Do you already have CPR card? I have read that it is needed for applying.
    Do you know any place that have cheap CPR class?

    I took my Healthcare Provider CPR class at Presbyterian on Walnut and Greenville. It was $45, and it was an excellent class. I took it in May and I remember everything from the class.

    Arlington may call themselves the Mavericks, but they are certainly in the UT system! I received my MSN in May from UTA, fully expecting my "master's hood" to be blue & white...the Maverick colors. Imagine this Sooner fan's surprise when it turned out to be burnt orange & white...UT colors!

    I am glad to have found this thread as well. Does anyone go to Eastfield? That's where I'm working on my prereq's since it's the closest for me.

    Hasn't anyone heard of the El Centro satellite program at Presbyterian? You have to have all of your sciences finished before you apply, and it helps if you work there. You only have to work part-time to be accepted into their program. You will NOT go anywhere else in the DFW metroplex to do your clinicals. You will do everything at Presbyterian, and I've been told that it's a 3 day school week. They are flexible with your work hours if they know you're in school, and I've been told by many employees there that they will NEVER leave. They love it there.

    You don't have to work there though. But they put all of the people in the program that work there first, and then they take "regular" people that apply through the El Centro site.

    Let me know if you would like more information. I have met the person in charge there and she's great. I have her name if you'd like to talk with her.

    LOL! I know they are definitely part of the the UT system. Did you know they used to be part of the A&M system? ....best of both worlds.....my two favorite Texas teams! HAHAHAHAHAHA

    I tease my daughter about A&M...she is such a UT fan. I should go to A&M-Corpus Christi to get my RN-BSN. Gig 'em Aggies vs Hook 'em Horns....all under one roof!

    ooooh better yet.....I'll be a Sooner....OH SHE WOULD HATE THAT! LMAO!!!
    (Yes....I hum the Sooner fight song during the Texas-OU game...errrr the whole weekend, actually! LMAO
