    I have since spoken to someone with the UTA Academic Partnership program & she informed me that the initial information that they had received concerning Parkland & Baylor was incorrect. UTA nursing students can do their clinicals there as part of the AP program without being employees of those hospitals.

    For those of you who are Spring 2010 hopefuls, she did tell me that the class was full so it appears that the selections have been made! I have read all of the posts for those of you that have been stalking the mailman so hopefully they will get the notices out & ya'll can relax and enjoy life before nursing school starts!

    All I can say is....pave the way for those of us that will be following in your footsteps! Hopefully, I will be there in Spring 2011 so keep on posting your experiences & giving us some idea of what we can look forward to.

    Thanks for the info! When did you talk to her? I'm hoping I got in and hopefully that's why they called me yesterday! But I won't get too excited. You never know.

    gentle terms of service reminder

    i am glad so many are posting here. while it is important to network, please remember there are rules of this site called the terms of service (tos) that you all agreed to upon registration. please refer to the following portion of the tos which addresses the use of names.

    while it is important to be able to network, everyone should be mindful of the following:
    1. it is a small world - when we narrow it down to a state and throw in some personal info, there is actually a pretty good chance someone may recognize you if you are not careful. your privacy is paramount to us.
    2. while allnurses.com is a wonderful place to vent (without excess personally identifiable details) it is not the place to express why ("x" specific person, place or program) is terrible. gripe away, but since we cannot permit allegations to be made about named entities, your care in not naming them is very much appreciated.
    3. please do not give out personal information about others. do not name names where anyone could identify the person in any facility including your nursing programs.

    names have been edited from several posts. thanks for understanding.

    OK, I got the emails again saying I have been accepted! I hope it's true this time. I emailed my advisor but she hasn't responded yet...
    Did anyone else get an email???

    Well, I am glad I didn't get too excited this time. Turns out they send that email out everytime an AP academic session begins...the new one begins on nov 2 or something like that. I am getting tired of getting emails saying "Congrats on your entrance into the SON Program!" and then it turns out to be a falsie. GRRRRRRRR...

    yah, I am not too impressed with all of the emails. But I do understand that it's the first semester they are having this fast track program, so bumps are kind of exprected. It sucks, but I still think the regular nursing program as a whole is pretty good.

    Has anyone received an acceptance letter yet for the UTA fast track program? Supposedly the letters have not been mailed yet, but someone else has already received theirs through the mail. This is strange to me.

    Congrats, Goopsy! You must be so stoked.

    I am thinking of applying to the program as well (for the subsequent term). I noticed the prereqs list General Chemistry, though. I'm in Intro right now -- and that is quite enough for me ... really don't want to do another, harder one! Did you take General, or is that negotiable?

    P.S. Hi Miss Pink! I think I saw that you got accepted to two UTs. Congrats to you as well!
