UT Arlington Academic Partnership BSN Program - page 2
Hi everyone, I just found out about this program and had an advisor call me today (which was really impressive) and tell me about it. According to her, as long as you meet the requirements to enter the program, you're in and... Read More
- 0Sep 6, '10 by N2NRSINGI keep reading that clinicals will be somewhere in texas, I live in dfw and am interested in this program but do not want to do clinicals outside of the dfw area. Would I be forced to go to Houston or something like that for clinicals when I live near the school and so many local hospitals are in partnership in this area? thanks!
- 0Apr 23, '11 by gr8txrn2bDoes anybody know if you can be a new ADN grad to enter the RN to BSN program at UT Arlington. I heard that they want you to have worked at least a year before you can enter. Is this true? UT Arlington is going to be my finishing school for my BSN and ultimately my MSN. How did you guys do it?

as far as the bsn program for people who aren't nurses is concerned, it depends on the partner hospital as to what the quality of the educational experience will be. in this 15 month program, the partner hospital is financially responsible for providing and equipping a clinical lab with patient simulators. the clinical instructors are contractors hired by uta. results can vary from partner hospital to partner hospital. it isn't like being a student attending class in person in arlington.
- 0May 24, '12 by CalixanI am seeing a lot f different things from this site as well and a lot of information is incorrect according to what the guy over the phone told me when asking about the program. AnonEmos had a lot of good information but one thing I want to add that I was told by the school is, the partnership hospital help you better your chance of getting into the program over those who are not partnered. You still do your clinicals at hospitals around the arlington/dfw area. For example, my hospital is partnered, and it's two hours away from dfw, but I can't do clinicals there. So the school will place me at a site in the dfw area that's partnered and has enough room for students. The guy I talked to said some hospitals accept 40-50 students so which ever hospital has room is where they will squeeze us overflow students in at. I am meeting with an advisor in person tomorrow so hopefully I will get the rest of my questions answered.
- 0May 26, '12 by CalixanSo I met with the advisor and she wasn't very helpful. Kind of just looked at me waiting for me to ask questions instead of just trying to provide me with information. I asked about the partnership thing again and she said no you do clinicals at the hospital you are partnered at, but I really doubt she knew what she was talking about. Ugh, I just want to be done with school already!
- 0May 30, '12 by MarkG, BSN, RN, EMT-PQuote from CalixanShe was essentially correct in stating that you will do clinicals at the hospital you are partnered with. This may be a group of hospitals since a single hospital may not provide enough exposure to the subject material you are on at the time. If you are not partnered, you will be assigned to a group in your area. You don't really have much control of which group you are assigned unpartnered or which days your clinicals are on.So I met with the advisor and she wasn't very helpful.

Clinicals are twice a week 8 to 12 hours per day. You may or may not go to each available day during the semester.
Make sure you do really well on your science classes and prenursing classes, the competition is fierce.
