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

    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..
    I would definitely follow up I know a couple of people taking more then one.

    My advisor just emailed me back there was a rule in effect of no more than one nursing class but apparently a week ago this rule was squashed as long as the student is aware of the amount of hours required to do the work...just another way UtA messed up I could have gotten more done than I have and the only way I found out was because you guys had taken two classes and I am pretty certain I would never have know other wise smh.. As it is I am already registered thru to december so I will leave it for now...smh so doggone frustrating too far in to pull out now

    Clarification in regard to the 2 nursing courses at once....they are highly discouraging it. In early July, my advisor told me that beginning with the July 2 starters, the students were only aloud 1 nursing course at a time. Recently I was reviewing the course map and read at the bottom, only 2 nursing courses aloud at a time. When I brought this to her attn, she said that it is aloud, but that it is discouraged.

    I started the nursing courses in January and have been taking 2 nursing courses at a time. I also remember in the course map it just said that no more 2 were allowed to be taken at a time. I don't remember hearing the academic advisor tell me I could only take one at a time.

    Nightnurse2002, That stats class is tough! I took it in the Spring and failed it by two or so points, even though I watched the videos and worked some of the problems- not all, I didn't do as much as I could. At the time, 15% of the grade was quizzes, so my near passing grade had a lot to do with the 100% I would get on those. I basically bombed most of the tests.
    Second time around, I vowed to get a tutor, but I didn't. My heart fell when I learned they eliminated the quizzes, so the grade is solely based on 3 tests and a final- the final making 40% of the grade. The familiarity I had with the material helped the second time around. I haven't gotten the official grade, but I passed this time. Yet, it was really rough and if I would have failed it again, I would have just taken it at the local junior college this time because the format is not so great for a weak math learner.

    Thanks for the info mercury ! If you are a strong math person then hopefully it will be a slight bit better hopefully I have been trying to get a copy of the syllabus to try and get an understanding of the assignment percentage and to get started on the assignments but no luck

    Hi all, I have just 3 classes left- Research, Leadership/Management and Capstone. I know how Research is, but I don't know much of anything about Leadership/Management. For those of you who have taken Management, can I take it with Research? I want to apply for graduation and be done before the end of the year. Thanks.

    Research is a nightmare because the entire thing is a group project and that can go either way depending on the group you have. On the other had I felt that Leadership/Management was a lot of busy work. Not super hard but a pain to complete. The lectures weren't always the best. One lecture in particular is on the Financial aspect of FTEs etc. the lecture is awful. I understood it and after our AC never responded to questions I ended up walking the class through the steps....Our AC was the worst I had for this class which made it that much more difficult. In the end I got a 97%.

    I took research with Vulnerable populations and I thought that combo must be the worst and I survived. So, Research an another class is doable if you focus.
