  1. Can someone give me feedback about science at UTA, PLEASE!

  2. Need Nclex RN study tips
    There are really only 2 ways to fail a test. The first is knowledge deficit, basically you don't know the material. The second is self-sabotage, having a really high test anxiety or second guessing...

  4. to those who passed, how many hours and how long do you study for nclex preparation
    I did not study at all for about 2 months. Then studied for 2 or 3 hours a few days before the exam. To be really honest, working in healthcare for twelve years provides quite a bit of...

  8. Fall 2014- Traditional BSN
    I would say your ok for the most part with those grades, but it is a competitive program to get into. You can take the HESI again for a higher overall grade, it is the same test each time. Study...

  9. How long to hear back?
    As far as I know, you have to send a transcript from each school attended to get the transfer credit. That information should be on the FAQ on the admissions page. The OP mentioned a $1000 off,...

  13. Why does school have to be made to be (seemingly) unneccesarily difficult?
    I will chime in as well. I have gone to school for a couple things now and would say nursing school is about medium difficulty in the grand scheme of things. I would rate my experience in...
