UHV Second Degree BSN Spring 2014 Applicants

  1. 0
    Hi all, anybody out there applying for this program? I haven't seen an updated thread on it yet. I just finished applying to UHV- just waiting on NursingCAS to receive my final transcript for my application to be considered "complete" I'm also applying to UTHSCH UTHSCSA accelerated programs, and TWU-Houston traditional BSN program. I have my B.S. in Human Biology from UT Austin in Spring 2010. My undergrad GPA was definitely less than stellar, but all my pre-req coursework is not too bad. What is y'alls impression of this program?

    I think it should be ok...did you send all your transcripts already?

    I was also looking for an updated forum on this topic.

    I spoke to an advisor and they said that as long as your info is updated on the NursingCAS then you technically make it? I know that contradicts the website since it says that it needs to be submitted weeks ahead... so yeah... still questionable.

    Have you checked NursingCAS lately? It took like a week and a half to receive my last transcript, but about once they had all of them it only took like two days to "verify" and complete my application. So, it was done by 9/1/2013 for me. I wonder if UHV wants us to submit so early so they can get their own GPA calculations together...hmm.

    Also, I emailed someone last week about my TEAS V scores not being attached to the application, but still haven't received a response. :/ I just wanted to confirm they received it via email. Aside from that, I faxed in the SS release form, too, so I should be done!

    I'm pretty sure they use the calculations that are done by the NursingCAS. If you want your TEAS scores on the CAS application then you need to call them and have them update the information. Once you submit your application online then you cant make this adjustment anymore...so they have to do it for you.

    Well, I emailed the new advisor/contact person, and she confirmed that everything has been received for me(including TEAS scores) and it is complete for consideration! Now to wait...-_-

    The waiting is very hard...I submitted my application on the very first day that it opened (May 1 I think??)...I spoke to the advisor and was informed that the board would be meeting to review our applications at the end of October.

    Good luck to everyone!

    WOW! That's so crazy that they wait so long to review applications. -_- Why can't they start sooner? ;(

    I know! I wish they would start sooner I'm sure there's some method to their madness...

    You are applying to UT-H also, right? Which program is your top choice?
