I am looking to double up on nursing classes while in the RN-BSN program. I realize that it might be wiser to take certain classes alone and not double up. This thread is for everyone enrolled in the RN-BSN program to discuss... Read More

    They had no problem accepting PCCN. Keep in mind that PCCN is a relatively new certification, however, it is on the list of approved certs (and the academic advisors aren't nurses, so I don't know why they would say anything about not recognizing it)...

    A few weeks later, I had to email my academic advisor back because I never heard from them about it... so you have to stay on top of them. They are slow and inefficient...

    BTW, my course map doesn't mention Texas govt....only US History I & II and Poly Sci. Any thoughts? I wonder if it was overlooked.
    The "Texas" class is POLS 2312 (State and Local Govt). You need that, POLS 2311 (US Govt) and both of the US Histories to graduate, so definitely follow-up with your advisor so you're not caught by surprise when you think you're finished.

    Just1nRN,

    thanks for the info re: PCCN cert. The academic advisors are slow and inefficient, you say? I could add a few more choice adjectives to go along with those, but I won't. Where do they get these people? It is quite frustrating to deal with mine and sounds like yours is just as bad.

    Hi everyone! I am an RN who is interested in going on for BSN at UTA. I read through some of the posts and was wondering exactly how difficult is the online aspect. I have always gone traditional, but have no time and need to spend the least amount of cash that I can to pursue this. I am good with the computer. Also, how hard are the courses? Do they accept alot of previous courses or not? Any help from anyone who knows would be very helpful. Also, is there a clinical component?

    I am in the AP RN to BSN program through UTA and I was wanting feedback on Nursing Research? Any feedback? I'm actually a little scared.

    All doable doubling up, there wasn't a class that was not doable doubling up, they all require a whole lot of self discipline, compliance, discussions, writing and tests... I doubled on all my classes with no issues and good grades, let me know if any of you need assistance with class schedules!

    Cool class, team work! Got to have a strong participation, not difficult at all! I too was scared, took it with leadership! No books for either and I got an A on both

    In any case they are simple classes and you can finish them way ahead of schedule! Pay attention to the lectures!

    Hi There!!
    For those of you who have taken medical terminology, is it a hard class?
    I'm currently taking A&B, do you think I can take med term and survive both with good grades?

    Thanks,
