    Is anyone else here going to be performing your clinicals at Methodist Mansfield? I'm curious to know who else here I will have the pleasure of meeting...

    Hey guys - I was wondering if some one could tell me if I would be considered partnered with a hospital if I am just a volunteer there. Thanks for the help.

    Hi wchelsea - I don't think so - you have to have an employer ID code to submit with your application, and then your employment is reverified at the time that you are accepted into the program. So I don't think that volunteering would qualify for that code - you have to go through the entire hire process.

    Hi Y'all -

    Congrats to you all who are starting the nursing program. I am just beginning my prerequisite courses this spring starting with Cell & Molecular Biology and Sociology and then A&P I and Dev Psych. I opted not to start with Intro to Prof nursing, due to applying at another college where it will not accepted. Do you think that course is need for the "orientation?" I was hoping to take it during the summer where I wait to be accepted into the nursing program, but I am not sure if that is allowed.

    I would love to hear/see what GPA's you all had entering into the nursing program and whether you were partnered and your considerations. I am stressed about the GPA. Before all my pre-reqs, which consist of ALL the sciences that I still need to take including Tech Writing, Sociology, and Dev Psych and of course Patho, Physio, and Intro to Prof Nursing, and the elective - I have a 3.44 GPA. I was an A/B student 15 years ago with one C. Even if I make all A's from here on out, I will only have a 3.67 GPA. Do they calculate the per-requisite nursing classes (pathophysiology, pharmacology and intro to professional nursing as well as the elective - med terminology) into the GPA used for consideration to the nursing program?

    I do not foresee becoming partnered, I just don't think it is possible with my more than full time school schedule and mom duties. However, I will be studying 5-6 hours per day - so I know I have the ability to make all A's from here on out.

    I will have 2 considerations, all my sciences at UTA and over 30 hours of courses at UTA.

    Is there no chance that I would get in the nursing program with my GPA and NOT being partnered?

    After I calculated all my classes including the pre-req nursing classes, it brought my GPA to about a 3.67, unless they round up. ;-)

    This is disconcerting, and if I cannot even be a competitive candidate then maybe I should look at another degree plan. What do you think?

    I am sorry to come bug you all with my questions, but so far I haven't been able to get any responses from my adviser - I hear this is the case for a lot of students!! :-(

    Thanks!
