  1. Excelsior RN program ?
    I got my ADN through Excelsior/Regents. The CPNE is tough and nerve-racking, but it is doable. You have one patient at a time only. You must pass 2 out of 3 adults patients and 1 out of 2 pedi...

  3. More than one nursing class
    The assessment class is just a bunch of rote writing. Busywork, but not hard. Health Promotion is pretty easy. You keep a weekly journal, summarize a short book, and do a couple simple...

  4. More than one nursing class
    I didn't, but a coworker did. She said she was wanted to get done as quickly as possible, as that's exactly what she did. Another coworker did and got so overloaded that she stopped going. It's...

  5. UTA ONLINE FNP APRIL 7th Start
    ldawn79, sorry to hear about the overwhelming feeling. That's what I'm worried about since they require you to take 2 courses at a time. Did they give you a course map for the program? I think...

  6. Applying for graduation
    I had to wait forever, it seemed, to graduate and get my diploma. Finished in August, didn't graduate until December, and didn't get diploma until late February. Congratulations!

  7. Cooperative- alone or with another class.
    Co-Op is a super easy class. It's a good class to double on. But, like ldawn79 pointed out, I'm not sure you can take a nursing class with capstone. Maybe since it's a NURS-EL it's different,...

  10. UTA RN-BSN online Official Degree Plan from advisor
    It seems to vary. For me, it was very quick as in less than a week. Others have reported it took months. I have no idea why.

  12. Starting UTA's RN-BSN Online Program April 7th
    HIST 1312 - I recommend not to take it at UTA. Take it anywhere else. It is terrible. Without direct patient contact, I'm not sure how you are going to do NURS-EL 3300. That class consists of...

  18. Which pre reqs are easy and which are hard?
    I took all those classes at UTA. The two POLS are easy. PSYC 3310 was each. Art appreciation (the fine arts class I took) was OK except it required mandatory group work. The people I was...

    As I recall, I worked ahead in the government classes. I don't think you have to log on at a specific time for quizzes.

  20. College Algebra 08/19
    The test proctoring is terrible. I understand why they did it, but still. Ouch. I'd probably look at local community colleges for an alternative.

  21. Uta rn-bsn nursing research 4325
    +1 on this class being the worst. Poorly designed and poorly taught. The biggest issue is that you will be assigned to a group against your will. Perhaps the stars will align and you'll be in a...

    Stats is by far the more involved course. I am great at math and ended up passing the course with a 98 or 99, and if I were in your shoes I would still drop stats. You don't have the time to devote...
