I was considering going through this university for my RN- BSN.... The school claims the program is only 13 months and 6,450 if all you need are your core nursing classes... If you need pre recs it's can still take you as little... Read More

    The school only allows us to take one nursing class at a time and I agree with kc post the teaching assistants some are a challenge it's the uta processes that are so frustrating I am taking as many classes as I can so I can be done ASAP

    It takes uta a while to get thru the application process as they do a certain amount of processing at a time based on the requested start date

    What school are you referring too that only lets you take one nursing class at a time? Because at UTA you can take 2 nursing classes together. I have taken 2 nursing classes every 5 weeks since January.

    I may have misunderstood who you are referring to though.

    Scarletfire, Im trying to get into the program now. I've already applied and sent in my transcript 3 times, but my to do list hasn't been updated as yet. How long did the entire admission process take? They seem to be very slow on my end with no one to talk to.

    I applied to the program June 7th; received e:mail confirmation that my application was complete June 29th with a transfer credit summary and received my course map July 20th. Like you, I began getting nervous a few times but I called the admissions office once regarding my transcripts and then another time a few days before I received my course map to ask about my status. Both times I got a real person and received helpful info. If you call, be sure to have your student ID # handy because they will ask for it. Hope this helps.

    Then your advisor missed the memo that was sent out to the students they made me drop 2 classes that I had signe up for they allow now only one nursing class with a non nursing class I got the memo from my academic advisor

    I never got a memo that I recall regarding classes. Maybe it just started this last semester. I was taking Capstone which would have meant this last semester I only had one class at UTA.

    Though, from what it sounds like you were taking nursing classes with non nursing classes. I only had to take nursing classes so I only had 2 nursing classes each term no other classes, so maybe that is the difference.

    kcdunlap,
    I took 2 nursing classes this summer simultaneously and have registered for 2 beginning in the fall (Aug 13th). I never received a memo either. I did read somewhere on the academic partnership website that they strongly recommend 1 nursing class at a time. Maybe they allow only so many credit hours in one semester like other colleges do.

    Maybe there is a GPA requirement. I spoke with my advisor and they advised me to make sure I was able to handle the work load. She did say they recommend only one nursing class but leave it up to the students discretion.

    I am gonna try and find the email tomorrow on my desktop and verify this info I was trying to take two nursing classes at once and they told me I could not but they said one nrsg and one non nrsg were ok my GPA is above a 3.5 so i doubt it's a GPA thing..
