- 0May 1, '13 by SugarNSpice10University of Tennessee Health Science Center - MEMPHIS (not the UTHSC in Texas) is re-opening up their accelerated BSN program for the upcoming class to enter in the Fall of 2013. Has anyone applied? If so, have you heard anything? I've been accepted into UofM's traditional BSN and I was debating between the two.
- 0May 6, '13 by Tinker88I was accepted into the BSN program at UTHSC and at the U of M. UTHSC is 15 months and Memphis is 2.5 years (5 semesters). Which works for you? I actually decided to attend Union University this Fall and it's 15 months too. I'm 24 and already have a bachelor's in education so the accelerated programs make more sense for me. If I had to choose between U of M and UTHSC...I would go with UTHSC. I almost picked that one myself, but I have my reasons for Union.
- 0May 6, '13 by kaneshia morrowOk that's great I just recently graduated from Union University with my bachelor degree it's a pretty good school but yet expensive. Was it hard getting accepted into UTHSC BSN program? I am really aiming for UTHSC now. My mind was set for Union accelerated program but the price tag I wouldn't be able to afford. Do you mind telling me what was your gpa on getting accepted into UTHSC program? I am kind of nervous about applying to the program I haven't met anyone yet that has been accepted into the program. If you're not comfortable telling me your statistics on getting accepted into UTHSC you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I really need to info on their program.
- 0May 6, '13 by kaneshia morrowThe accelerated program works well for me I refused to do a 2-3 year program cause I already have a bachelor degree. I graduated from Union University. The school is great but yet expensive. That's why I'm kind of leaning towards UTHSC. Do you mind giving me some insight on UTHSC program like what was your gpa & teas test score upon getting accepted into the program? I am a little nervous about the program honestly. If you not comfortable of posting your gpa n etc on here. You can email me email@example.com.
I really need some insight on the program I haven't met anyone that's applying to the program.
- 0May 7, '13 by Tinker88I know that UTHSC will be about $18,000 for the BSN. I have a 3.8 and I got a 71% on the Teas. Memphis will be about $28,000 I'm pretty sure. I would go for UTHSC!!! I may go there also if I don't hear back from Wells Fargo soon. I'm choosing Union because I have no school loan dept from my previous bachelor's and thought "Hey why not?" ya know?
- 1May 14, '13 by Tinker88Quote from Athena2802This is just my opinion, but I like UTHSC's curriculum layout better. U of M will take 5 semesters for you to complete. UTHSC will be 4 and you will complete it in 15 months because it is accelerated. BUT only you can choose. It also depends if you are working and your schedule.I got into both UTHSC and U of M but for the RN-BSN route. I'm trying to figure out which school would be best. I wanted to know if anyone has been to either school. I'm just needing more info on both.
UTHSC: Bachelor of Science in Nursing
- 0May 14, '13 by Athena2802Spoke to the nursing director over the RN-BSN class today at u of m. Since I was a student at U of M and I am currently a nurse, it would only take me 2-3 semesters. 2 if I do full time, 3 would be part time. Not to mention, all including health assessment is online. UT states that classes are in 10 week sessions within the fall and spring semester and 7 weeks in summer. You are also required to show up one day a week. I like U of M flexability but I want the UT background.
