    Hi code3rescue,

    i don't know about tech writing because i didn't have to take it, but i can tell you i took Texas gov along w/ Prof nursing A/B and had no trouble at all. I finished Texas in just 4 weeks, because it allows you to work ahead. I work 3- 12 hr shifts a week, too.

    I haven't had a chance to read through all the threads so I am sorry if this has been asked. If I am volunteering at a hospital would uta consider me partnered with them. Thanks for the help I am mobile and having trouble viewing all the threads.

    "Partnered" in what sense? As a student you don't need to be affiliated with any hospital to be part of the program.

    code3rescue,

    you are going to be busy with those 3 classes. I have read here on allnurses that both histories require an overwhelming amt of time and effort. if you need any details on Texas gov, send me a PM.

    History 1311 really IS a lot of work, and I honestly wouldn't recommend taking it with two other classes. Keep in mind that 1311 is a full-semester history class covered into 8 weeks, not a special version of history that is chopped up and abbreviated just for the RNs. A lot of classmates discovered how much work the class was and spent the first few weeks whining and e-mailing about it...so much so that the instructor had to step in since a lot of protests were getting verbally abusive.

    So as someone who just finished 1311 and 1312, I would advise you to seriously reconsider your schedule.

    If you persist on taking the three classes at once, I wish you the best of luck. I do have advice for you pertaining to the Histories.

    1311:
    First of all, you need to stay on top of the schedule. The first thing you should do is take the syllabus and plug every single due date...and yes, adjust for time zone differences because "I'm in California" will not be accepted as an excuse for late submissions. All deadlines are given in Arlington, TX time (Central). They take things down as soon as the deadline passes--sometimes within MINUTES of it passing--and so you can be out major points if you are not careful.

    And log in, study and read. Every. Single. Day. Between the lectures, videos, book and the primary readings (all which are numerous AND fair game on any test) in each unit, you will have a lot of material to cover.

    Last, you can't really work ahead in 1311/1312...which may be a blessing or a curse depending on how you like to do things. They focus on a week at a time--you will not get any early access to lectures, web materials, projects or tests. The most chance you'll get to work ahead is the scoop on what chapters in the book you should read next. So prepare accordingly.

    Texas Gov:
    Here you can work ahead to an extent, at least when I took it. Don't skimp on the lectures (including all the audo clips) or the book reading, as both are fair game on the tests. There's only one paper you have to write.

    I'm trying to figure out my next schedule and wanted to tackle my Math and English courses. Did anyone take MATH 1301 instead of College Algebra? How difficult was it? For your Sophomore Lit or higher, which English did you choose? Did you find that there was one less difficult than the other? Thank you all!!

    I'm looking into the BA - BSN program that takes 15 months. Cost 17k with clinical's every weekend, classes online as an option sounds great. Down side. There in Arlington, TX and not linked to any other hospitals at this time. So I'm back to WGU. so frustrating.

    Applied on October 15th to the program, Got notification that all my stuff was recieved on January 3 saying that it would take 2 weeks for everything to be evaluated. is this true or will it take a few more months for everything to get evaluated? How good are they with credit transfers? I have a B.S in Natural Science and an A.S in nursing of course. How much time did you dedicate on average to each class? Thank you!
