    Congratulations! I'm expecting to graduate by May.

    I wonder if UTA RN-BSN online students are eligible for Sigma Theta Tau.
    Hi, online students are definitely eligible for Sigma Theta Tau. I was invited to join and registered yesterday. We are also invited to attend the induction ceremony, but since I am in California I won't make it. This has been a lot of work, but I also think online is the way to go. I do not think class time is needed for the RN TO BSN program.

    Hey when do you plan on graduating? What GPA do you need to be invited? I have a 3.4.

    It's not so much the GPA, as it is being in a certain percentile of your class (I think it's top 1/3rd), and have a certain number of nursing credits completed.

    Oh ok, hopefully I'll be somewhere up there. Thanks Meriwhen!

    I actually was not told the requirements to get in, so this was interesting to read. I am finishing Capstone and co-op next week. I am so excited to be almost done! So far I have a 4.0. Fingers crossed that stays the same next week!

    I got the criteria from the Sigma Theta Tau website...and if anyone knows what an applicant needs to get in, it's them

    I know the feeling, I'm crossing my fingers that I'm keeping my current GPA as well. Good luck!

    Hey 9 lives!

    I just finished an ADN program and I am considering UTA for RN to BSN. I see that you had a great experience with them and was hoping to ask you a few questions. I tried to do some research through their website, but most of it read more like a sales pitch. I need to complete several of the general education courses and wanted your opinion as far as whether I should do them through UTA or trying to do them locally and hoping they transfer? Also, I do not have any experience with online coursework, how are the classes conducted? how are tests proctored? Full of questions..thank you in advance for your time.

    I am considering UT-A for my RN-BSN and any information is much appreciated! My main concern is about the clinical component, since I live in a rural area and work in public health with the foster care unit. Thank you!

    There are no clinicals. Everything is online.
