    I remember the blueprints. Lol. I think the best way we could study was to fill out the course map. (I think that's what it was called). It was something that went through the whole course. I filled it all out. It helped a lot.

    Hi there, did you work at the same time you did the program?

    Hello, I'm graduating from this program. I worked about 24-36 hours a week in this program. I had friends in the cohort that had kids, and there were several that worked full time. Everyone in the program tried to discourage them from doing it, but they did it, quite successfully. Time management, time management, time management. Something I'd have to add is that at times it can be so. incredibly. unorganized. I used to be the kind of person that needed information and planning and control over life, and this program sure as hell trained me out of it. If you get in, don't expect to feel in control or like you have all the information you need. But finishing in 15 months, while exhausting, was still worth it.

    Hello OzTx,
    Actually, I will start my pre-reqs in April through UTA AP general courses program...I will also take courses on during flex-term at dcccd (i.e. History, Government, Intro to Psy, Tech Writing, Chemistry). When you are accepted as a UTA AP General courses student you can take all your pre-reqs online through 5-week, 8-week and 15-week terms. This include courses like A&P I/II, Microbiology (which you cannot find online anywhere without going to the campus), Patho, Pharma, etc. The other unique thing is that you can take Patho, Pharma and Intro to Prof Nursing while taking the other pre-req courses...huge advantage! If I don't take additional courses at dcccd, the course map states that I will be ready to apply for the Nursing program in Sept 2011 and I am trying to actually get into the program in June 2011. I have about 12 courses to take before I can apply. I was told by the Nurse Education department at Parkland that your chances are increased if you are already an employee at one of the partnered hospitals. I have not confirmed this statement with the advisors at UTA.

    Congrats on taking the first steps to another career! I first learned about the 2nd degree accelerated programs last year around this time...I wished I would have moved on it last summer (June 2009), I would have been finished by then. I think it is better to focus on one nursing program when taking pre-reqs and preparing yourself for the Hesi because it can become overwhelming trying to keep up with the various 2nd degree BSN programs out there (TWU, TCU, Baylor, Texas Tech) or deciding to pursue the associate degree route only if you can go to school fulltime without working; which is not an option for me. During this process it would be a lot easier to focus on the pre-reqs for one program, once you are near the end of your pre-reqs then look at other options. This is one of the reasons why it took me a year to get started with pre-req courses (I was trying to decide which program I was going to pursue and I needed as many online courses as possible because of my family situation).

    Do you work at one of the partner hospitals? If not, do you have the possibility to work at one of the partner hospital? I think it will help your chances in getting placed into the nursing program once you have applied to the program. What courses are you taking now? How many courses do you need to take before you can apply for the program? What was your first bachelor's degree in? I received a BBA - Management which is why I need so many courses (sciences).

    Hello txnurstud,
    I was wondering how you were accepted into the UTA AP general courses program? I applied and got accepted into UTA as a student. I'm doing my pre-reqs at El Centro and trying to work in either Parkland and Baylor. Ive been filling applications out like crazy and I have an interview with Baylor Thursday. I really want to get into this program, because like you said its a perfect program for people who have to work full time. Thank you soo much for the information.
