- 0Quote from 2bAgr8RNHmm, well I've got all but stat and anthropology. I was looking at UTA's RN-BSN courses and anthropology isn't one of them. I thought that's what the additional points would be going off of? Wonder why we need to take anthropology or if one of my other bazillion classes I took while in undergrad would count...@Slopez205 and RNNelson79...this info is what was given to me at the info session in April. The additional 9pts come from these BSN courses...
math 2342-(which is stats)
hist 1302 and 1302
govt 2301 and 2302
engl 1302 and 2311(tech writing or any 2000 or above english)
This point system also favors me as well so I'm hoping for the best
Well, 7 out of 9 out of the gate isn't bad. No complaints so far
- 0It's great for those who've graduated with a bachelors already- and bad news for those who have not, and who have been hustling taking the Pre recs and support courses and thinking they're ready to apply. I guess a lot of people will be turning to Brookhaven etc. who don't have these BSN classes taken already. I'll admit it's pretty strange since it is an associates degree and not everyone wants to go for the BSN. On the other side, it's a less pricey way of achieving the BSN in the end.

They were waiting for the Dean of the department to get back from a conference and they will probably be mailed out Thursday or Friday (5/3 or 5/4). She was very nice and helpful!
- 0May 1, '12 by Slopez205i just went in person during my lunch break and she told me the same. she also said that the new information packets aren't going to be ready for a while because they are still making changes. our best bet is to attend the info session on monday, 5/7. @ rnnelson79, i know why they're working on getting everyone bsn ready. i work for a company downtown that owns and operates hospitals in 11 states. my neighbor also works in hr for baylor. i also volunteer in the er at doctors' white rock. i have heard from all of these sources that going forward, they will only be looking to hire bsns. they will consider adns with considerable experience, and they won't even look at lvns.
so it makes sense that they would eliminate the need for students waste time getting certified in a medical field to get those extra 2 points of experience when they could be working toward their undergrad credits.
twu and uta don't even take medical experience into account so el centro is preparing students to be ready for the transition more quickly.
