    Has anyone else received an f and been accepted to the nursing program?
    I have never made an F. If you have many F's, just retake the class and pass it. As long as you pass your pre-reqs and maintain a minimum of 2.75 GPA, they'll consider you. I haven't heard of anyone getting into the program with a GPA less than that.

    No haven't received any F's either. But yeah as long as you retook them I think it's okay. Don't quote me though.

    I have a 3.6 right now but we will see how it goes after I take a&p and chemistry.

    OK! So I went to Tyler today to meet with my advisor and check out the campus. Everyone was really nice and the campus itself wasn't bad...just the rest of Tyler is wayyyy different and old. It's definitely going to take me getting used to.
    I was also told to stay away from Cambridge and Varsity apartments because of the crime. And also was told that The Reserve apts were good, but didn't have time to check them out. University Pines are on campus and look to be decent, but did seem kind of pricey to me.
    I got prices for the level 1 nursing textbook packages and they are insane! $697.91 for the textbook+ebook package. And $394.61 for the ebook package. These packages will be updated so prices might may not be exact, but close enough to get an idea.

    Hope this helped!

    To be honest with you I received 2 D's in my chemistry class on my first two tries, it does hurt you because Tyler goes on the point system. For every time you fail a class they take off a point, but you can easily make up for it with your TEAS test score! I recommend you making an appointment with the advisor there. When I came she literally took out the grading sheet and scored me right there. Its a different paper than what they show us online. It also showed me different classes I could retake or take extra (humanities) to boost my point standing. I didn't get in for fall with 72 points, but I got in this time I think with 78points.

    Thanks for telling us about Tyler, it helped me get an idea of what the campus looked like.

    I emailed my adviser about books and she ended up forwarding my email to the instructors but no one has emailed me about textbooks. I found the Fall 2012 syllabus for Nursing Competencies and I read that we needed "Electronic version of textbooks to load onto your portable device (available in the book package in the bookstore)." I was wondering if we really do need electronic versions of our textbooks because if so, I might as well just get the ebooks.

    So the documents are textbooks that we need for Spring? Thanks for uploading this for us! I have been trying to get a response from instructors and my adviser about my textbooks so that I could get them from third parties.

    I actually can't buy the textbook package because I have already taken Pharmacology. If it's not required to buy electronic versions of textbooks then I'll definitely buy my textbooks from third parties.

    I took all of my classes at UT Arlington, and I made two D's in chemistry, she took off points for that. It doesn't hurt if you make a C and retake it for an A because thats what I did for Anatomy. I'm not sure if the point deduction only counts for nursing preqreqs like sciences. Its always best to make an appointment with the advisor.

    KRBee- we do not need the electronic versions of the books. My advisor told me either or....I'm personally better at learning when I have the book in front of me, so I won't be buying the ebooks. I've also taken pharm so I was planning on ordering my books via third party.
