Question for anyone, I applied at the beginning of May, had someone from UTA actually call me while I was still in the process of filling out the application. Told her I was interested in possibly starting for the 6/30/14 classes and she said that might be pushing it but could be possible. I had both of my college transcripts sent electronically, one from a University in Texas where I took some Gen Ed classes years ago and the other from my community college here in Texas where I received my ADN. Those went through fine, received an email with login instructions and set up my MyMav mail account. Did not receive another email for the rest of the month of May so I went ahead an emailed, called, and never heard back. So I decided to take three more Gen Ed classes I was lacking this summer. Finally, a couple weeks before the June 30th deadline I get an email saying I was provisionally accepted. I deferred and decided I would start during the 8/11/14 session instead. So I registered for Professional Nursing A&B and Technical Writing but I have not heard back about which classes UTA will transfer. Any idea in how long this will take?
Radiation_RN, have you checked the status of transfer credit on MyMav?
My experience was UTA accepted everything of mine. Some of my stuff was very old and some was coded a bit differently, but they accepted stuff readily. I was quite pleased.
Prof nursing is a lot of writing, which was a bit of a shock to me, someone who hadn't written a paper in some time. The hardest part for many is complying with APA standards for formatting. What I did was I bought a Word add-on that automatically places things in APA format. It was about $30 or $35. PERRLA. There are free resources out there as well but PERRLA did it wonderfully. I used it all throughout the RN-BSN program and I'm still using it now in the FNP program. Money very well spent for me.
It sounds like most of us that are taking UTA classes are working full time. The only person I know currently in the program is working full time and she said as long as you are organized and stay on top of the workload, you will do fine.
