    Hey! Where is there a weekend CNA program?? I work during the week so it would be perfect for me!:wink2:
    Hey SMVTX,

    I am signing up for the weekend CNA class @ northlake college in Irving its about 500.00 which is not bad. It starts 3/28, I'm signing up tomorrow! I've looked at other programs and they around 900 and the one they offer @ UTA is 1200-expensive!

    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, 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.
