    I dropped it off. I live on campus, so I figured it'd be safest to just drop it off

    My advisor told me that being partnered was not important!!!! Im am starting to think that all these advisors should get out of education and into politics, because they can surly tell some lies!!! I could have gotten a job at a partnered hospital before I applied if that was the case! So much for busting my you know what just to have someone that is a B student take a spot which I was told was based on GPA and considerations! being partnered was not a considerations!!!! Come on wait list!!!!

    You are rude. Even if your advisor didn't tell you being partnered was important, it is very clear on the info sheet with pre reqs and considerations that partnered applicants would get priority. I guess this 'B student' did her research and you didn't, so no crying about losing 'your spot'. Sincerely, Accepted with 3.4.

    @txhopeful12 Not rude! If you specifically ask an advisor a question and they give you misleading information, that is not fair to ALL applicants. I did ask, she said "working in a hospital is not a requirement and that NO considerations will be given to anyone that works in a hospital." It is solely based off science GPA, overall GPA and considerations. Its appalling to know that their are a ton of us that have sacrificed everything to get beat out of a spot by someone who has not done as well after being told working in a hospital is not a plus. BTW I am not the only one that was told this! Kudos to those that were able to find out the truth! Apparently if you spend more time researching how to get in you are better off than someone who earned a 4.0! This info came from multiple advisors!!!

    Man oh Man..all your posts have me highly concerned!! I applied for the AP-Online program for Fall 2013. Overall gpa is 3.75 and i currently have 1 consideration. After reading all these posts i will def be considering applying to TWU as well.. im limited to which programs i can apply to because i work.. guess ill just keep thinking positive thoughts and take what fate throws my way!

    Good Luck to all those who got wait listed!
    I completely understand your concern - honestly, I haven't figured out yet what they look for - if you look at the spread sheet that another student is maintaining - it is all over the place - some with 4.0's and 1 consideration did not get accepted; some without partnerships got accepted while others who do have partnerships did not ~ I really don't see any consistency or patterns, although I'm sure that those who made the decisions would say that there are. It makes it difficult to know exactly what to focus on to try to ensure acceptance. What I am focusing on is applications for other schools now - rather than one program, one school - I am still hopeful but don't feel that I should limit my options ~ I have to feel like I have an honest chance - so I'll have to spread out a little.

    It is unfortunate that misleading information was given but in two different locations directly from UTA’s website it states that priority is given to employees that are partnered. It is not a “consideration”. Who knows what UTA is thinking but a good rule of thumb is to stay calm and be hopeful. No need to be at each other’s throat and be degrading. Once again, for those waitlisted let’s be hopeful and for those accepted into the program, CONGRATS.

    Acceptance to the upper division nursing program is highly competitive and based primarily on science and prerequisite GPAs. The upper division nursing curriculum is divided into four semesters to provide continuity, and integration in the learning experiences. Only 120 are admitted into the BSN on-campus program each fall and spring semester. In the online program, partner hospital clinical sites will vary each semester. Priority will be given to students employed by partners.

    Applicants will be ranked and admitted based on space availability.

    Admission to the program is highly competitive and primarily based on natural science and overall prerequisite GPAs. Priority will be given to applicants employed by partner hospital systems offering clinical sites during that semester of admission. Partner hospital clinical sites vary each semester. To receive priority, applicants must be employed at the time of the ranking and the first day of class. Employment at a partner hospital is not a guarantee of admission into the upper-division nursing courses.

    Cut It Out..This Site Is For SUPPORT!! Not Bickering. Everyone Has Their One Sacrifices And Everyone Deserves To Get In. You Don't Know What The Next Person Had To Go Through To Get Were They Are At. Having A's Or B's Is NOT What Defines A Good Nurse Or Person. I Understand Emotions Are Haywire But Let's Be Careful How We Say Things. We Are ALL In This Together.

    Quick question for y'all! First let me say congrats!!!! I am so envious. 2nd, I work for THR as a tech. I have applied to UTA so I can start taking their online 8 and 5 week courses. When it comes time to apply to the AP program , do I need ONLY the Prereqs or do I need Pharm, Patho, and Foundations? It seems that these would be taken the semester before clinicals start but I am confused. I need 9 Prereqs and will have them completed in Dec 2013. So would I apply then, take the 3 above required classes Spring 2014 and start the program in the fall 2014? Thanks for your help!

    On a side note.... Working and going to school is no joke!!! If you can work full time and pull grades well enough to get in then you should be applauded for that! Nursing is about so much more than highest GPA.

    You have to either have completed OR have a plan to complete all prereqs, including Intro to Nursing, Patho and Pharm PRIOR to start of clinicals - you don't have to have them complete by application, but on the application you have to detail your semester plans showing how those classes will be timed and completed prior - hope that helps!
