    UHV second degree BSN spring 2016 program

    I am a current UH second degree nursing student preparing to graduate in December *super excited* The program accepts around 90+ that come in for orientation, at least this year they did, and by the end of the first semester the number decreases dramatically. This program is NOT for everyone and there is a high attrition rate because it is intense--2 years into 12 months! I have plenty of good suggestions so please feel free to send me a message. I was there once wondering if I would make it into the program. My stats TEAS 87 GPA 3.8 (nursing and cumulative) however they do look at your overall profile. Hope this helps! See you all for Welcome Day :-)

    Advanced second degree BSN

    Often enough in advanced second degree BSN programs the requirement is to quit your job, family and sanity. The program is not for the faint of heart nor is it for those requiring extensive instruction. You should prepare prior to entering the program by showing some initiative and studying your anatomy and physiology book, chemistry, pharmacology, and pathophysiology books. I know that you may say well I will wait until the program starts but if you do then you are at a disadvantage because with the high attrition rates of said programs it is not worth failing out. Think about it other programs will not want you because you failed out of nursing school, you invested your own money or borrowed it with no return on your investment not to mention letting yourself down. In my experience, the program I am currently in started with 96 student and now in our last semester we are at 36 students--of those half have received jeopardy letters. Ultimately, the program goes fast and by the time your know it you will walk the stage but know your learning style, join a study group, make sure to keep any comments/remarks that may be misunderstood to yourself because unfortunately that would be to your demise. Remember network with your peers, do not join "cliques" and your nursing instructors are ALWAYS right. I wish you well in your own endeavors and hope this information helps.
  9. I am less than three months away from graduating with an RN-BSN and would like to ask for advice on the best hospitals to apply. If you can provide tips on interviewing that would be very helpful.

    Does the ABSN start in spring or summer 2015? It seems to me the staff are overwhelmed with emails that they are not thorough with their responses. I took all pre-req's plus taking currently pharmacology, nursing concepts, and pathophysiology.

    I was accepted to ABSN :-) My question is those who narrowed their choice to UT Tyler would you mind letting me know why. I would have to relocated either way from San Antonio to either Houston or Tyler.

    trudy 2017, thank you for the clarification. The email can be misleading when one applied only to the advanced track.

    "It is our pleasure to inform you of admission to the School of Nursing at UT Tyler on the Tyler Campus for Spring 2015. It is very important....Then on the next paragraph it states: to obtain your admissions packet go to....and print your entire packet for the Generic Student Admission Packet. If its for the traditional I will be declining since I was accepted at UTHSC-Houston and University of Houston Sugarland. I did send an email to Ms. Stapleton earlier this evening.

    I'm confused I received a letter of acceptance but do not know if its for the advanced or generic although I applied only to the ABSN. Did you all's email have ABSN specifically on the letter?
