  1. what can I do? A frustrated "old new grad"
    The Houston area is still hiring anyone with a license ... a lot of people who need general hospital experience for other things (grad school, specialty niche, certifications, etc.) will come and do...

  2. Potential move to CA from TX
    Family considerations may have me considering a California move in the next 6-12 months. I'm currently in the Houston market, and am wondering which areas more closely resemble the economic climate...

  3. Being Gay and a Male Nursing Student
    I've been a nurse for 17 years, and all of it has been in the South (mostly urban areas, though). When I started, I was still "in the closet" professionally for the first 3-4 years, and it wasn't...

  4. Comparing Aspen U & WGU
    I am in the process of enrolling at WGU, which, if you read their story, will probably be the leader of the pack of online educators in the next 10-15 years because of their innovation in education...

  5. University of Texas at Arlington Online RN-BSN Program
    I graduated last year, so I'll attempt to answer most of these for you. Pros and Cons of UTA RN-BSN Pros: 1) It's still relatively cheap, although the price does increase every year. If you...

  6. CCNE Accreditation for UTA Expires June, 2012
    Every accreditation and certification known to man has an expiration date. UTA is the largest nursing school (physically, and online) in the state of Texas, and I'm most certain there are people who...

  7. Nursing Research Course
    This class was a bit intimidating ... I think it was the second class I took after Professional A&B. The textbook was boring as Hades, so I made sure I focused on understanding the definitions and...

  8. UT Arlington Online RN-BSN July 2, 2012 Hopefuls
    I finished their program a year ago ... yes, there are assignments due EVERY week. It's really only "self-paced" in that you don't have a physical classroom to be in across campus at 2:25pm. Most...

  9. WGU MSN
    very interesting that you consider $6,000 a year as "expensive." i have my adn and bsn from two state schools, and with tuition hikes by the legislature here in texas, wgu is now cheaper than my tax...

  11. WHY does a B.S. + RN not equal BSN
    A BSN degree really prepares you to be more of a consumer of nursing research than an ADN degree, which just prepares you to perform professional nursing. You do not get Nursing Research, or a...

  12. RN or Radiography:
    I would go for something more general (RN) that will allow you to get a broad experience initially, then specialize in an area you're comfortable with later. With specialized health degrees, there...

  13. Can anyone tell me anything about the Galveston College ADN Program? Good or Bad?
    I would highly recommend getting your BSN. The nursing "shortage" is turning into a "graduate glut" - a lot of Houston area hospitals are no longer hiring new grads, and when they do, they're...

  14. UT Arlington Partnership Online RN-BSN
    I just finished their program in May, the RN-BSN completion program, and I really learned a lot. The reason I chose that program over places like Phoenix, etc., was because 1) it's from a...

  17. ADN vs. BSN
    Yes, this is a very "emotional" subject. I've been an ADN nurse most of my career and have recently obtained my BSN. I once believed - as most do - that there is no difference, but I saw the...

  19. RN, RN&MPH? or BSN?
    There certainly are cheaper venues ... if you're worried about cost, take some more time and consider some other schools you haven't applied to yet. I was able to finish my BSN for less than $7,000....

  24. In a few years all RNs will be required to have a BSN?
