Best BSN school Houston/Corpus Christi TX area?

I'm an older nursing student in the Houston area having completed all the pre-req's. Alas, there are so many programmes to select in the Houston area and Texas A&M in Corpus Christi that it's difficult to pinpoint my choice. Any input from y'all is MOST appreciated. Thank You and have a Merry Christmas!!!! :bugeyes: :bugeyes: :bugeyes: :bugeyes:

Welcome to AllNurses.com.

I sorry I don't know about any of the schools down there, but I'm sure someone will be able to answer your question.

Hi! I am in Houston too and was trying to decide which program was "best" - I even posted the question on the Texas forum :chuckle Someone said all the schools are good, so just pick the one that works best for you!

I think HBU takes 3 years to complete a BSN (I could be wrong) and its also private so its a lot more expensive. Praire View, TWU and UT-Houston all have 2 year programs and are public. UT-Houston also has a 1 yr accelerrated program for those with a Bachelors in another field.

I am deciding between the UT-Houston accelerated program and the TAMU-CC eLine program. I talked an advisor at TAMU-CC and they said they dont have clinical locations in Houston yet, but they are working with MD Anderson to get something set up. She didnt know how long it will take. So if you are interested in the eLine program, then you would have to travel to College Station or Corpus Christi to complete the clinicals (unless they hurry up and establish something with MD Anderson!).

Were you thinking about the regular 2 year program at TAMU-CC or the eLine program?

If any one needs any further information on the Texas A&M Univ-CC eline nursing program PM me. I have just been accepted to the eline program and will be starting courses in the Spring. It is a really great program.

If you want to stay in the Houston area I would suggest one of the accelerated programs, either TWU or UTHouston. UTMB also has an accelerated program if you are near that area. I would contact the programs and find out what you will need to do for admissions and what prerequisites you might need. Based on that you can find out which program fits you better.

Good Luck!

I was in CC two weeks ago and I'd love to go to a BSN program on the beach! :lol2: It is REALLY nice down there...

Has anyone had an interview yet? I have an interview next week for the accelerated program at UTMB and I am wondering what kind of questions to expect. Any advice?

Did you accepted to the accelerated BSN program at UTMB, and what was your college GPA, I was thinking about applying to the accelerated BSN program at UTMB?

Thanks

I have an interview next Thursday so I don't know yet if I will be accepted. I know that 80-90 people apply for their accel. program and they take 20. My undergrad was a 3.05 but my nursing pre-reqs are a 3.6 and I have a 4.0 in science. In order of importance they look at : science, nursing, overall undergrad. I just hope the interview goes good. I don't know what to expect! Good luck on whatever you decide!
