UTA Fall 2013 - page 2

I thought I would start a thread for those applying to UTA for Fall 2013; AP or on-campus. I will be applying to both and am hoping to find a job at a partnered hospital before the January 5, 2012... Read More

    Who's information says you have to be employed 6 months; the school or place of employment? If it is the place of employment, that is probably for education benefits. I didn't think there was any time requirements regarding UTA. I've read were some got employed after the deadline but prior to decisions and were still able to get classified as partnered.

    The college of nursing web site does not mention anything about being employed for 6 months (At least not that I could find):
    Priority will be given to applicants employed by partner hospital systems offering clinical sites during that semester of admission. Partner hospital clinical sites vary each
    [FONT=FrutigerLTStd-LightItalic][FONT=FrutigerLTStd-LightItalic][FONT=FrutigerLTStd-LightItalic][FONT=FrutigerLTStd-LightItalic]semester. To receive priority, applicants must be employed at the time of the ranking and the first day of class. Employment at a partner hospital is not a guarantee of
    admission into the upper-division nursing courses

    Sorry if this posts twice... my first comment did not post correctly.

    I am partnered with THR and just switched to UTA and plan to take my last 9 per reqs online. I have a 3.45 overall and a 3.75 in science. This is all so stressful! Hope all the work pays off. Anybody know if it matters what hospital you work at? Thanks!!!

    I don't think it matters which partner hospital you work for. But I thought each hospital was allotted a certain number of "spots" in the program. Maybe I'm wrong?

    I work at Presby Denton and I think we just started allowing clinicals.

    I believe each hospital is allotted so many but it is based on how many the hospital has available; I believe THR is having a cohort at two different hospitals so it would be based on how many at each hospital. If that makes any sense. My advisor gave the proposed list of AP clinical locations for the fall; I think there was a total of 10-12 hospitals.

    Joshsmother- what classes are you taking? I am taking the three nursing prerequisites and technical writing online this semester through UTA.

    Jan 14 starts Intro to Professional Nursing as a 5 week course. Then I am taking Tech Writing as a 5 week and then American lit as a 8 week class. All while taking a remedial math online thru TCC to prep me for college algebra and statistics! I was told the intro class HAD to be your first online class but could be taken with other classes.

    I will be applying for fall 2014 but subscribed to this thread so I could know what kinks to expect! Decided to take last 8 classes at UTA since that are faster and I can get them all in this year! I work full time right now so a traditional format is my best for me

    I am taking the same Intro to Professional Nursing course so maybe we can help each other if we need anything.

    Hello all. I also applied for fall 13 with a 4.0 science and 3.25 overall, a BSW from UTA and 30 pre req hours at UTA.Question for you all: are you seeing your applications in the application status section in your mymav? Also, I made some changes and resubmitted my applications BEFORE the deadline, but did not get another confirmation email for the resubmissions. Should I be concerned? Thanks and good luck!

    Also, if my transcripts were sent to UTA by the application deadline but have not posted yet, will that affect my admission?

    I am also taking Intro to Nursing beginning on the 14th. :-) LCordelia, not sure... I would imagine that you would receive another confirmation. I would ask your academic advisor to be on the safe side. If your transcripts were received by the deadline, but haven't posted maybe they are still in the process of looking them over. I don't know... again, I would check with your advisor.
