    I know this post is a little late, as I'm sure you've heard from those schools by now. But I was just curious as to if any of you got in to UT-houston and was planning on attending this fall?

    Just asking cause I'm a student there, well technically now a senior! So I'm just curious to about some of the new juniors.

    I'll be starting the accelerated BSN program at UT Houston on May 19. How do you like it there so far? Have you enjoyed your clinicals? Any advice for a soon-to-be student?

    Congrats!!

    Well I don't really know that much about the accelerated program except that I have mad respect for everyone in it!

    If you get the chance, get involved at school with the organizations. There's UTSNA and student goverment. And if you don't really have time for all the meetings, at least try to come out to some of the events. UTHSC hosts several events throughout the year, as well as SON events. Come to as many as you can. Free food is always great!

    I'm not entirely sure where the bacc-2 students go for clinicals, but I'm assuming it's most of the same med center places we go. MD Anderson nurses tend to be great with students. St. Luke's is okay if you seek out learning opportunities. I haven't been anywhere else in the med center, so I don't know. Just try to make the most out of your clinical experiences.

    Get to know the faculty. Or at least find one faculty member whom you can go to for advice and what not. Most of the faculty members are pretty great, although they all have their off days.

    At orientation next friday, there'll be some seniors from SGO and UTSNA there, and I'm sure they'll be glad to answer any questions. The SGO treasurer used to be a bacc-2 student before she switched over to the regular program; she'd be great to talk to.

    I wish I could offer you more pearls of wisdom. But if you think of anything you need, you can always send me a message.
