in 2005 i was accepted in the lvn to bsn program at tarleton on a conditional basis of passing algebra. but i failed college algebra by 1 or two points and i was booted from the program ( i have since then have passed the class).....this survey thing is new and i cant figure it out. do you apply to the survey class, is it a first come first serve class. i thought about applying to the program and doing the generic bsn program cause it is the same length basically as the transition program . but to me it seems like they baby the generic students for example this survey class...in the transition program you don't have all that mess to do. but i am still trying to decide whether to do a traditional based program or go through ec...if you have any information on the survey class please post it ..

you have to fill out an interest to survey form?? stupid i think because you are not actually going into the nursing program just the survey course before yu are excepted. you have to compete for a spot in this course. then once you are in the course and have all the prereq's then you basically get into the nursing program. that is all i know! but there is info on the website of tsu nursing.

I don't know much about Tarleton's nursing program, but I wish you a lot of luck. I like Tarleton. I used to live in Stephenville. I took the Education classes for my teacher certification at Tarleton, and I did all of my graduate work in Education there. I no longer live in Stephenville, but if I did, I wouldn't hesitate to go through their nursing program. It's a good school. I think they had a few problems with the program earlier on, but they have worked hard to make some positive changes. I think going to nursing school there would be great except for maybe the possibility of having clinicals at Harris Methodist Hospital there in Stephenville. Anyway, I hope you like it and have a great experience there. Good luck!!

Well...you're in luck! :up: There's only one Starbucks :smilecoffeecup:in Stephenville! According to Google :typing Maps, the distance between the nursing school and Starbucks is 1.6 mi – about 5 mins. Not bad, eh? ;)
