    Yeah I have only heard great things about all of the programs I am applying too! (TWU UTHSC & UTMB). I'm not really sure I will get into UTHSC so it will be a tough choice between TWU-houston and UTMB.

    do anyone know for open house do you have to be there at 9 or can you come anytime between 9 and 12 because i was trying to take my TEAS that same day at 8 to 12?
    The open house is the whole time from 9-12. You don't have to stay the whole time, but it would be to your benefit to do so!

    Hi all! I'm really excited to meet some of you on Saturday morning! There will be a group of students there to answer some of your burning questions with real "student" answers. Hopefully we can ease your fears a bit

    If you didn't sign up for this Saturday, the next info session is March 9th. I highly suggest attending!!

    Hey ladies!
    I applied for the Fall 2013 semester and I'm SOOO beyond nervous about getting in!! According to my mystar (which I check weekly, even though I know the deadline isn't until the 15th ) I'm in the completed status. My GPA is sub-par (I think) but my TEAS scores were really good. I've been a PCA at St. Luke's for 2 years and I was wondering if anyone knew if they take that experience into account..
    I'm excited to get to know you guys!
    Unfortunately, I can't go to the open house at this point because I work on both Saturdays, but please feel free to reply back! I'd love to hear about everyone's pre-nursing experiences!

    One of the things I love about UTMB is that they consider the whole person during the application process. They look at experience, read personal statements, test scores and gpa to get the full picture!

    Experience doesn't guarantee you a spot, but it does look good! Just the same as not having it doesn't knock you to the bottom. The classes at utmb are made up of very diverse students!!!

    Rmegster, Have you guys began clinicals yet? If so where do y'all complete them at? Also, how are you liking the program so far? I would really love to hear some more details about UTMB like the schedule and intensity of the classes and such.

    I know they do some of the clinicals at St. Luke's. We get about 10-15 students per semester doing weekly clinicals in my unit.

    Yep! You start clinicals after a couple weeks into your first semester. Clinicals can be at any hospital in Galveston/Houston. Be prepared to drive! Sometimes you get to put in your preference, other times it gets chosen for you. Just depends on the instructor.

    Flexibility is key. All of the bsn programs compete for placements, so sometimes you won't know where you are going until the week before. It sounds scary, but the staff is great and will help you in any way they can.

    Schedules change from semester to semester, but for my class we had two days of classes each week, one day off each week, and two days of labs or Clinicals each week. I think that changed for the spring class, buy out gives you an example.

    Whichever nursing school you choose, time management will be a new challenge! Programs are demanding and they require a lot of your time. If you're not great in that area, start practicing!
