Accelerated BSN Programs in Texas?

  1. 0
    Hi, guys! I'm a newbie to this site, and I wanted to get your input on accelerated BSN programs in Texas. I live in the DFW area, and I hold a Finance degree from Texas A&M. I've recently decided to try my hand at nursing school, and I need three prereqs to get into RN school--A&P I, II, and Micro. (I start my A&P I on Tuesday!) I was plunking around on the site and saw that some nurses were talking about the fact that they had done an accelerated BSN 12-month program geared toward people with non-nursing degrees. Does anyone know if there are any nursing schools in the area that offer such a program? I checked UTA, and they don't seem to have it.

    TWU Houston campus (Dallas campus does not) offers one and TCU does too. Both of these programs are 15 months and start in May..graduate the following August. TCU program runs about 40K for the 15 month program.....little high but thank God for loans I hear that TCU received 400 applications for the 20 seats class this past time....really competetive!! Good luck on the search.

    hey fellow ag!

    try TAMU. The are starting an acclerated program, although I don't know when it goes 'live'.

    and besides, as you well know, College Station is a great place to live.

    I know Texas Tech just started an accelerated program and almost all classes are done via the web. They work with your local hospitals and find a predeptor so you can do your clinicals in the DFW area. I think they take new students in January, could be wrong though. I know it is a very intense program and am pretty forsure they say you can't work at all.

    In addition to the schools listed above, University of Texas-Houston campus and UTMB-Galveston also offer accelerated BSNs. I don't know how long the TWU program will be in effect since the school must get special grants/sponserships from other institutions to fund the program.

    I talked to the lady at TTU re: 2nd degree BSN and she told me it was 12 months long but that you had to have residence in either Austin or Lubbock at the time of the program. She stated that there was not a program for the Dallas area at this time.
