Hello everyone! Just wanted to start this thread for anyone planning on attending UTA's nursing program in the Spring of 2013..... I am working on the last of my pre-reqs right now at TCC, but I plan on attending UTA this fall... Read More
- 1Oct 22, '12 by nikkib376I have stayed home with my kids for years and, like several other people on here, it was NEVER mentione how important it was to be partnered. The first time I applied I was denied and was devastated. I was angry that I basically HAD to get a job to be accepted, but it came down to what I needed to do to fulfill my dream of being a nurse. (Now it actually states that partnered students get chosen first or whatever, but 18 months ago that wasn't spoken or written anywhere!) Anyway, it's worked out for the best, and 3 attempts later I'm finally accepted! Anyway, to those of you that received misinformation, I was in your shoes not too long ago. I've shed MANY tears throughout this crazy journey, but I'm so glad I stuck with it. I am very blessed to have family close by to help with the kiddos and a very supportive husband. I would have lost my mind if not for them!I know it's an eye-roller to hear, but DON'T GIVE UP! Use this forum to learn everything the advisors failed to mention, keep asking questions, and do whatever you have to to get in. Retake science classes, get a job in a hospital (it's kinda cool because I already know which areas I DON'T want to work in haha!), whatever it takes. I'm proof that it will pay off!!! Good luck to everyone!!!!
- 0Oct 22, '12 by txhopeful12I love your positive attitude nikki! I too was devastated the first time I applied and was denied to both programs...the first time around, I knew partnership had something to do with it, but I never knew how much. I think partnership is UTA's way of giving credit to those with clinical experience, not to mention I'm sure partner hospitals quite a bit of money to the university....UTA is a strange, confusing path to navigate, and I've seen many, many people get to their junior year, apply a few times and give up and go to Midwestern or TWU.
- 0Yes, third time is a charm, I too have applied three time and I finally got accepted. congrats everyone!!!!! I know I am late. However I almost didn't check my email this time around because I just knew I didn't get in. If it weren't for my friend tell me to check my email i wouldn't have done so.
- 0@ futureexpectations, the hire date doesn't have to be by the application deadline. It's kind of a gray area, but you can get hired after Jan 5 and it will still count for your Fall 2013 app period. It is weird that they really don't give a "cutoff" but from what I gather the date in UTA's minds is just before their "decision date". My start date was March 27th and it counted for Fall 2012. Decisions were made early April so I barely made it. Of course, that didn't help me anyway because THR only took 20 instead of 40 for Fall so I was waitlisted. Anyway, hope this helps! Apply, apply, apply! I applied like crazy in Nov and Dec of 2011 and never got a single call. I took a break and started again in late Feb and the first week of March I interviewed and was hired in the ER. Crazy how things work.
- 0thank you, tah0009! Did you end up doing e-books also? I'm so curious what you think if you did. I have an iPad but I just LOVE paper books (something about turning real pages lol!) But the savings is nice, and also transportability would be nice, too. Your thoughts? Advice?
- 0On another note, is anybody on here registered for the Intro to Psych class that started yesterday?? Even though I took that 15 years ago I am enrolled in that and Med Term because I had to take 6 hours to keep FA happy...anyway, I have yet to receive any sort of info from either the prof or an academic coach. I have emailed the professor and have heard nothing. My advisor hasn't responded yet either. It is just so weird! Anyway, if any of you are in that course, let me know! Thanks!
- 0Oct 23, '12 by kels.weirI took it so I could apply to TWU as a back-up. The TEAS V is nothing like the HESI! For the TEAS you actually have to study in great detail in order to do well (I got a book from Barnes & Noble to study from). I studied for about 2 weeks before and still only made an 83. The average is usually around an 80 from what I've heard. Let me know if you have any other questions about it.
