I have a question for a anyone currently in the program. I noticed that for summer they offer Complex Concepts Adult Health. Who is allowed to take this class in the summer if anyone. I heard that certain student can take it for earlier graduation date. Is this true or not? Thanks

The summer Complex program is offered to those students that are in the Fast Track program. Those students are usually already LVN's, EMT's or have other experience. They start with Mental Health in the summer, take Adult in the Fall, OB/Pediatrics in the Spring and then finish with Complex the following summer.

Depending on how those fast-track students do (for example failures or withdrawals), some spots will sometimes open up and students in the regular track are allowed the opportunity to attend the Summer Complex semester (and graduate a semester early). Regular track students have to apply for the limited spots. They need faculty recommendations, grades of B and up (no C's!), and preference is given to students with extenuating circumstances and who have never failed a dosage calculation test. This summer, 10 spots opened up for regular track students - which is unusually high! I was told there are usually only 1-4 spots available.

Hope this answers your question!

Do you have a link to what classes are required for the BSN?

Each university will have their own lists of prerequisites for their RN to BSN program. You should be able to go to any university website and search for RN to BSN - most of them are online, some are hybrid. TCC has partnerships with several different universities, and I just got an email in February about a new partnership TCC has with MSU (Midwestern State University at Northwest) for health care degrees.

Here's the link for the RN to BSN partnerships that TCC has (MSU isn't listed there)

Partnerships - Tarrant County College

And here's the link for the partnerships that TCC has with ALL universities (but this list is NOT exclusive to health care degrees).

Transfer Center - Tarrant County College

I know someone else talked about signing a Declaration of Intent. It's a link on the Texas Tech website, it's not binding and is absolutely a good idea. It does need to be signed during the first semester of the nursing program at TCC. Here's a link with more information:

Tarrant County College | Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center

On that same page, you'll find the actual link for the Declaration of Intent

Hope this helps!

Wow 10! That is half of the fast track students. They only take 20! I'm curious as to why so many didn't make it to the end.

I know for this particular group, they took 30 students, but I don't know why so many seats are available!

That's cool they took 30. It would be great if they take 30 again!

If the website said 20, that's what it will be. They usually take 150 for regular track and 20 for fast track. The school received a grant, and for 2 semesters in a row, they accepted 180 regular track students (and apparently 30 fast track), but we are still paying the price. There is just NO room. Parking is a nightmare (the police are ALWAYS patrolling, it's no joke) and it's hard to ever find an empty classroom. Between nursing and all of the other Allied Health programs at TREC, there is just NO wriggle room at all.

I've heard a rumor that, with Radio Shack finally closing it's doors, the nursing program (or maybe the other Allied Health programs) may be moving to the main Trinity River campus, but that's totally unconfirmed and probably quite a ways away from happening if at all.

Oh geez! Sounds a bit chaotic. thank you for the info. I hope it gets better. Sounds like the college would benefit from expanding the nursing program to other campuses or the main building. It's such a popular program and one of the only ones in tarrant county (if not the only one, I'm not sure) and with so many current students and perspective students they could improve it. The demand is high because this area is growing so much. I'm actually surprised their graduation rate and first time NCLEX pass rate is what it is. In my opinion it's a bit low. Might not seem like a big deal but it is because that's how they maintain their funding, reputation and their accreditation. Either way I'm praying I get in and that the program is a good one!

If you don't mind a half mile walk, you can park at the trinity river campus. It's still pretty packed there too, but I always find a spot for my classes.
