    If you do a search on this forum regarding UTA RN-BSN program, you'll find several members who is very satisfied with the program. Also, if you do some research on other RN-BSN programs, there are many that don't require a clinical, and have very rigorous classes ranging from 5-8 weeks. The school is very well-known and is CCNE accredited. But if you don't feel comfortable not completing a clinical and taking 5-8 week classes, there are other schools to choose from.

    UW Green Bay has an online RN-BSN program that seems to have the "traditional" semester classes and a required clinical. The program is also CCNE accredited.

    I will graduate from there in December. Most of the classes are based on research, leadership, and management that is why there are no clinicals. There is one assessment class, but that is the only class that has anything nursing skills.

    The 5 week format can be intense but they have the program designed to perfection. No complaints at all!

    rdnkmommy,

    I am planning to apply for the RN-BSN program for fall of 2011. Can you tell me more about the program since you are almost done? I did get alot of the info from the website, but is there any other information you can share? Thank you in advance.

    hi everyone,
    I was wondering for those who were accepted into the program, did u complete the 3 required pre- nursing courses (Pharmacology, Pathophysiology, & Intro. to Nursing) before starting the first official semester of the Nursing Program at UTA? Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

    absolutely not! they have one of the highest reputations in the entire state and they have their programs down to an exact science.

    I just graduated with my BSN from UTA accedemic partnerships in December and I recommend this program because it is affordable and has no clinicals. The research classes are a bit tough but the program as a whole is pretty good. I am now in the MSN program now and it is alot harder. Hoping to pass my first class.

    I am taking technical writing through UTA now. I will start Professional Nursing A & B September 26. Any feedback on the amount of homework and overall program?

    I just finished my last week of Professional Nursing B today. I was very satisfied with the courses. The lectures and assignments were interesting and the workload was very reasonable.

    I just dropped my technical writing class tonight. I feel like a quitter but was so afraid the rest of the course was going to be impossible. After reading the 2 chapters and trying to navigate through Blackboard & Epic, I could not understand how to initiate my first paper! I thought the directions were so vague... I am not sure if the online study is for me... Any advice on trying to stick to this program? How can I get through with this first class? Do any other online programs offer real lectures and offer more guidance?
