UTA RN-BSN program 2011

  1. 0 hi everyone,

    i need a little advice about the uta rn to bsn program. i am currently enrolled; and i have taken prof nursing a and b, brit lit, and tech writing in the last 10 weeks and i have a 4.0. i only have nursing classes left.

    my question is has anyone taken 2 nursing courses at the same time? was too much of a time crunch? i don't have a job right now and thought i could knock it out before dec, and be ready for jan internships but taking 2 5 week courses makes me a little nervous.

    any advice or suggestions would be appreciated!

    i don't think you can take 2 nursing classes at the same time. at least that is what my coursemap and my nursing advisor told me. you can however take 1 nursing class and 1 general ed class. i'll be done with prof nursing a & b in 3 weeks!

    acwilson06- hi the process was actually very easy. i decided to sign up a week or so before one of the deadlines and i just called their 800 number and someone emailed me direction on how to apply and answered every question i had. it took about 2-3 weeks to find out if i was admitted. i don't really know if it was competitive.

    chybabe- you can enroll in more nursing classes after you have completed professional nursing a and b. i am in 2 nursing courses now.

    It's a little tough because Nursing research is all group work. But other than that it's going well. Good luck on the rest of prof. nursing!

    I don't know how many they have off the top of my head. I believe the start dates for the nursing classes are every 6 weeks, and I am not sure but I think most of the general ed courses are 9 weeks apart. If you go to stateu.com it will have the dates listed, as well as the requirements for admission.

    Hi.
    I am going to be starting the RN-BSN program soon. Did you take Technical Writing and Professional Nursing A at the same time? I am working full-time and not sure if I can take on 2 classes at the same time. Since you've taken both classes... What do you recommend?
    Thanks!!!

    if you have a busy home life and lots of summer plans you may want to wait, but i think you should be fine. if you go to stateu.com you can find the link for the courses syllabi. if you take a look at both classes you may be able to judge if you think you will have enough time better. so far the only course i wouldn't recommend taking with another course is research nursing (takes a lot of time).

    hi christina5sd
    have you taken health promotions across lifespan n3335? if so, how was it? im about to start that next week. the gen-ed classes imo are more work as in assignments, quizzes,lots and lots of materials to cover. thanks for your tips and goodluck with the nursing research class.

    Christina5sd,

    How was the research course? Did you use that study guide much? Was the class really hard? I am taking it Mon with Vulnerable Populations...do you think that would be too much? Do you still have the community book for the Vulnerable Populations course?

    Can anyone tell me how nursing research is? Is it better to work at the the end of the week. I was told its group work. Any suggestions?
