    Hi-

    I am very interested in this program. Did you speak to the admission advisors about the partnership with Texas Health Resources or did you speak to advising counselors? I'm about to start my pre-reqs at North Lake this summer...didn't know about the CNA program. Is it a requirement to work in a pre-nursing type of position or can I just work for any department at Texas Health Resources hospital and apply for the program?

    The advising counselors haven't been too reponsive so I thought I would ask if you don't mind.

    Just to tell you more about me, I am a career changer as well from human resources/recruiting world. I received a BBA so I have about 7-9 classes I need to take to get into any accelerated nursing program. I was looking into Baylor, TWU, TCU and since I read your blog now UTA. Of course, UTA sounds much better then all of the programs.

    I greatly appreciate any information you can share about UTA and TX Health Resources partnership.

    Thanks!

    ~Claudia

    Claudia, I recently found out that the fast track program is new for fall 2009 for UTA. It is a brand new program for them. As far as details, it says that more info should be available in April. It is a 15 month program and the contact's name is ***** (if you call the nursing dept phone they can connect you). I'm praying I get into UTA Fall and the fast track would be wonderful.

    Are you sure about the fall 2009? I have been told that the fast track will start summer 2010
    Where can I read the requirements? I can not find anything in the UTA website
    thanks.

    hey there Polska! If you don't mind me asking, what were your stats for TWU fast track? I'm pretty sure the cut off was at 4.0 because I know of atleast 5 people who had 3.9s and very very high NETs who didnt get in either! so don't feel bad.

    I haven't seen the flyer but the Director of Nursing Admission told me about this program. UTA nursing school are seeking several avenues for students who can learning in various methods (i.e. online, classroom, independent study, etc.). UTA is doing awesome things with hospitals to offer better financial support as well like THR pays for your tuition (classes are online only) if you work for them when you enter the program and you must commit to work for them 2 years as a RN after you graduate from the program.

    Polska,

    Me Too! I kinda knew my GPA wasn't high enough but I applied anyway hoping that my NET score would outweigh my GPA. I guess it just didn't cut it. Keeping my fingers crossed for UTA. I really like their program so far. They are really focused on helping students succeed (in my opinion).
