    I'm not registered for Micro this summer, but tejas03 is! I think she's having the same issues with that class. Oh, tejas...where are you?!

    @Mocachild, are you taking Stats that started on 6/20? Please let me know how that class goes. I'm taking it in August and not looking forward to it at all.

    No, I've never gotten a number for the applicants. My advisor is out to lunch, permanently. She has never given me NOT ONE encouraging word about the AP BSN program. She shoots me down at every turn. I have a 3.66 science gpa, 3.73 overall gpa, have taken all my sciences at UTA, have taken more than 30hrs at UTA and it's still not good enough for her. I'm more than a little irritated.

    @Mocachild, my advisor also told me that SHE hasn't been informed of ANY hospitals in Houston that are moving forward for Spring 2012. I specifically asked about HCA Clearlake. She said, no. if you have something in writing, I would love to be able to tell her otherwise.

    Yes...started the statistics class on 06.20. Will you posted. As far as your counselor is concerned, I think most of that department is out to lunch...and won't be back in time for dinner! In regards to clinical sites, I received confirmation from the Dean. Will send a PM so that you can pass it on to your counselor.

    Should we expect any additional notifications on our application between now and our letters? I cannot believe we have to wait so long?

    Naw...with the exception of missing documents, this is it. After the posting of summer grades, we'll see some activity.

    Hey guys....I'm here!!! hahaha!

    These Patho, Micro, and Psych classes are keeping me VERY busy to say the least!! :-/ I am trying to make an A in Micro and that is way harder than I ever expected. I am praying for the next 7 weeks to fly by and I can be done!

    Hope you all are having a great week!

    I would like to talk with anyone who works for the JPS hospital system.....have some questions regarding employment...feel free to PM me.

    How is everyone...it's been a little quiet lately and I wanted to check in!

    Has anyone heard from their advisor regarding the final count on applicants for Spring 2012?!

    Hope you all had a great July 4th!!

    Hello all,
    I thought this summer would be a light load for me with A&P II and Dev Psych, but the second week into it my 2 year old son broke his arm. That just threw me all the way off base and I am behind in my Psych class and holding onto a low B in the A&P class. I am striving for an A in both to boost my GPA.
    I will be applying to both TWU and UTA in Jan/Febrauary, I plan on taking the Hesi sometime this month and sometime after that take the THEA. I am going to take a Nutrition course at a local community college since I can't take it at UTA in the Fall. I still have Patho, Pharm, POLS, and American History to take to be done with the pre reqs. I am so praying to get into one of these programs on my first try, I am ready to be a nurse! Wish I would have started this process sooner.

    Quote from Cha1
    I was told to better my chances for the AP BSN program that I should consider getting a job at a partner hospital. I did. I have not started yet. I am wondering if there is a code or an application that must be filled out at the partner hospital that I will be working for in addition to my application to UTA for spring 2012?

    Thanks for the advise.
    Is it just that simple? Get a job with a partnered hospital and you are immediately allowed to apply. Isn't there some type of waiting period or time on the job?

    I have a question for you. I'm applying to 2 ABSN programs and I need 2 more classes for each program. How would you choose which to focus on? It seems that my chances of getting in UTA are slim to none (but there is still a chance since I did apply). My chances of getting into the other program is a little higher due to the number of applicants. So, I'm leaning towards the program with the higher odds. I also have the option of taking all 4 classes this Fall, but will be overloaded....thus the reason to choose.

    What would you do?

    I would be crushed if I by chance was accepted into the AP BSN but lacked those last 2 prerequisites!!!

    I'm curious to know this too...
    I would assume you still have to follow the application deadlines set by UTA and so forth. I do know that working at the partnered hospital does allow you to only compete for a spot within that hospital's applicants. That alone is huge!
    I do imagine that hospitals will start to take notice that there are way more people applying with the idea they will be admitted so I'm curious to see how that whole process of once your hired works.

    Hope partnered students can help answer these questions!

    Corinda...oh goodness! What other program besides UTA did you apply to?
    I'm assuming for UTA you have patho and pharm left? What other 2 classes for the other college do you need?

    4 classes in the fall would be a lot but if that was what you absolutely needed to do, you could do great! Do you work?

    I emailed my advisor today at UTA and got an automated response she was no longer working there and the name of my new advisor so I'm waiting on her to email back with the answer to the question I asked (how many applied for Spring 2012?). I think all we can do is apply to as many colleges as you can and pray.
