    Mostly good. The program is very doable while working full time. It took me 2.5 years but I could have done it in 1.5 if I hadn't traveled. Honestly, most difficult classes were non-nursing: statistics and history II. Take those elsewhere if you haven't already. If you ask specific questions I can give you more specific answers.

    I graduate from this program in a week so my answers are pretty fresh.

    Hi, I appreciate your response. We're you a student at UTA prior to applying to the program? I'm in San Antonio and consider applying, I've taken most of the pre-reqs however, there are 3 nursing courses you have to take at UTA. Did you take those courses prior to applying or waited till you were accepted?

    I'm currently in the program, about halfway through. So far, I've found it very doable. It's a lot of busy work, but I have doubled up on classes and worked full time and I have a 3.8 GPA. It's just managing your time well and staying on top of due dates. I would recommend it to anyone.

    I was able to do it in one year...but UTA accepted one class from another BSN program that I had taken.

    My only advice is do NOT take any of the history classes or Texas politics classes through UTA. They are absolutely terrible. Take at a community college or CLEP out if you can.

    Honestly it was a very boring program that focused on a lot of busywork, but I finished it and got my degree and kept a good GPA.
