Melissa1986's Latest Activity

  1. Hello. I just got my RN license in October and have my BSN. I am now applying for jobs and am interested in a variety of areas, such as L&D, ICU, ER, etc. Can I get opinions from other RNs about working in these areas and being a new grad? Thanks.

    *Unofficially* passed the NCLEX-RN!!

    It wasn't too bad. I had mostly SATA and Priority questions. Some I had to guess on. When i walked out, I felt neutral....not like I passed but not like I failed.

    I just had to post on here that I took my NCLEX-RN on Wednesday and found out this morning that I passed with 78 questions! (unofficial results) It is such a relief!!

    promotion code

    What promotion code? You have to wait until your board of nursing sends you your Authorization to Test. The instruction to register for the NCLEX will be with that.

    UTHSCSA Accelerated BSN Spring 2014 Applicants

    I'm trying to study for a final right now :) Zone 5 is what you get automatically unless you put yourself on the waitlist for another zone. Its several miles from campus and you have to take a shuttle, so if you are perpetually late like me, its not good. Zone 4 is decent, but Zone 3 is the best for the price in my opinion. The waitlists take FOREVER, so if you want to get out of Zone 5, I would first pick a zone that has the lowest waitlist number. I signed up for Zone 4 a week or 2 before orientation and got a spot quickly because of all of the May graduates leaving. I stupidly waited until July 1st to sign up for a Zone 3 Non-Reserved spot, and it took 10 months for me to get moved... I just got the new zone yesterday. I think I was #167 on the list in July. The program is going great. I like it alot, but there are some classmates that don't like it because there are constant changes being made.

    UTHSCSA Accelerated BSN Spring 2014 Applicants

    Hey guys, that's great that you've got a FB group going. My cohort uses ours constantly. Just so u know, they will tell u at orientation that u can't use UTHSCSA as part of your FB name. I'm sure it's fine for now, but just so u know.... Also, y'all are the Class of 2015

    UTHSCSA Accelerated BSN Spring 2014 Applicants

    Most people who work, only are doing so part time. There's only one person I know working full time, and he works friday evening and all day saturday and sunday. He's older so his kids are grown already. I have 3 stepkids under the age of 6 that my husband and I have every weekend, so I have not extra time to work. If we didn't have them, I think I could swing working a shift a week... maybe 2.

    UTHSCSA-Summer 2013 Accelerated

    Its going to be a long wait.... we still have to do the supplemental application in about 2 weeks. I wish we would know something already too.

    UTHSCSA Spring 2013

    I really wish I had known that they extended the deadline. The only reason I didn't apply for Spring 2013 was because I thought the deadline was July 1st, and my last couple prerequisites wouldn't be completed until 7/7/12....

    They didnt go into specifics at the meeting, but the averages for the last several incoming classes are posted on the nursing program website. I wonder why no one else has commented on this thread yet.... I doubt we are the only 2 applying for the program. Lol.

    UTHSCSA-Summer 2013 Accelerated

    This is the only school I'm applying for right now. There are 3 other BSN programs near San Antonio, but they either have additional pre-req's that are specific to their school, or I don't meet their criteria. I won't be able to move away from San Antonio to go to school unless absolutely necessary. Is UHV a regular track or accelerated BSN, and where is that program located? I went to an information session in July for the UTHSC-SA, but I don't remember specifically how the application process goes. Do you know? I know the next step (a few weeks after the appl. deadline) is a supplemental application, which has a few short essays, I believe. After that, don't we have to interview? Do you know any other specifics?

    So is this the 1st time you are applying to the UTHSCSA? Have you applied anywhere else? This is the first time for me. Not sure what to expect...

    I don't think they are required, but my gpa and TEAS score are average, so I thought it might help. I am submitting them through the nursing CAS system.

    Hi! I was just about to start a thread too, since I hadn't seen one yet for May 2013. Have you submitted your NursingCAS application yet? I'm waiting for 1 more letter of recommendation before I submit. I'm also waiting for transcripts from Alamo Colleges... they are so slow.
