UTA RN to BSN online

  1. 0 Are the classes doable, writing intensive if so how many papers per week. I work full-time and i'm worried about being able to survive this program. Are there quizzes and discussion boards as well? I hope to start in September 2012.

    If you can budget your time it's very doable. Each class is different as far as what is due but I think it was not bad at all. With the nursing classes I took 2 classes every 5 weeks. And worked full time and had a family.

    Taking two classes at once is definitely doable, but you definitely need to keep track of what assignments are due and when. Classes don't always sync up in terms of deadlines. For example, one class wanted assignments due at 11:59pm, which for me was 9:59pm local time...no prob with fitting it around my work schedule. But the other class wanted them due at 5pm, which is 3pm my time, which in reality means it's due the day before, since I also work and I'm not always off on the day an assignment is due.

    I cannot believe the school didn't appreciate the fact that we are located in all different time zones and allow the deadline to be specific to your particular location. That is the only fair way to do it.

    KC: You are an inspiration! Congratulations on being strong and managing school, family, and work at once. Your family must be very proud of you.

    Totally don't agree. We are all adults and you should be able to figure out how many hours ahead or behind you are from the time Central Daylight time you live. If they made it specific to the students time zone the instructor would have to know exactly where you lived and then accommodate for you that is not realistic.

    That would be too complicated as not everyone in the class is even in the same country Too many timezones to keep track of, and too much potential confusion. It's actually more fair to choose one time zone and designate it "it" and everyone just has to adjust.

    I don't mind adjusting the time zone. Sometimes how the time falls is annoying to me, but it is what it is.
