Hey y'all! I'm about to start taking my prereqs this summer to meet the Jan 5, 2010 app deadline for the University of Texas at Arlington Second Degree Fast Track Program. Anyone around about to do the same thing? or... Read More

    that is very interesting. I was highly disappointed and in a grumpy mood all day after I got the email. I don't understand though what that means that they are focusing on the students who are applying this year. I was planning on taking concepts this summer, but now I am for sure am going to take it. Thanks for the heads up!

    what I meant was that they probably do not have enough teachers for the 2nd degree program bc they are kind of tight on teachers. So they only have enough faculty for the 100 students that get into the program each semester. Sorry for the confusion I'll ask my advisor when I see him and get the scoop! This is just what I heard from other students

    Hey Preetyladie

    I'm not really sure I just pay the flat rate tuition for all the classes I take....but I looked on the UTA website and its about 875.00 for Spring 2009 not sure about the summer....summer tends to be a bit cheaper. They do offer Patho and Pharm in the summer but I wouldn't dare to take those classes in the summer bc they are super hard from what I've heard from my nursing friends!!!! I'm taking those in the Fall its to much info for me in the summer lol

    Weird. This is the email I got from an advisor at UTA 6 days ago regarding their fast track program -

    "Starting this spring we will be piloting a 15 month online accelerated program. All coursework will be online and clinical rotations will still be in the hospital. It is the same admission requirements and prerequisite coursework. We have not determined an application deadline for that program at this time but will be posting one soon on our website once it had been determined."

    So... some of you have heard it was cancelled?

    Elizabelle,
    The program was originally set to begin for the Fall 2009. I had gone to an advisor back in March and she got me all excited about it. Then 3 weeks later, they emailed like 50 people saying the program was cancelled for the fall but would begin in Spring if it's ready. So, there is no new information as of now. My advisor told me to keep checking the UTA nursing website to see when the app would be put up.

    Hi Shasta12,

    Were you able to start a position at THR or any hospital after going through the CNA program at Maria's Career Institute? You are so right...I am a career changer and I've been applying for Admitting Clerk, Unit Sec, Patient Transporter, etc and still no responses to my applications.

    I may have to bit the bullet and go through the CNA program while taking my pre-reqs...I just learned that I have about 42 credit hours of pre-reqs I need to take...for TWU I must take all of the pre-reqs before and for UTA I can take non-nursing (i.e. History/Gov't/Literature/Tech Writing/etc) during the nursing program. I guess going to a private university to get my BBA did not pay off now that I am going back for a 2nd bacc.

    Any info you can pass will be extremely helpful.

    Thanks!

    Allnurses didn't notify me until today that there were responses to this thread! hehe oh well.. I'll read and get caught up.

    TXNURSTUD, I applied for everything I felt qualified for at THR, but never even got an interview, even after finishing my CNA certification. Right now I'm in the middle of getting my prereqs out of the way to apply in January, I still need A&P II, Microbiology, and Elementary Statistics and I'll be home free!

    After scanning thru this thread, I HOPE and PRAY the fast track program has not been cancelled.. did I read that correctly????
