    UTHSC Nursing Spring 2016

    I personally had the opposite experience. I did well on the HESI except in A&P bc I wasn't done yet with class. That section is so important. I actually did better on the TEAS. The science is definitley broader though. If you look at averages you can do better on the TEAS and be well above national averages compared to the HESI which many people score well on.
  3. I got that email today too. Made me nervous because all of my stuff was submitted in August!

    I agree. I loved the atmosphere at UTMB and didn't feel like a statistic there. I felt like they got to know me and not just my grades. Grades don't always make the person. I am sure great nurses haven't interviewed well and 4.0 nurses haven't been the best either. I also got accepted to UTMB. For a while I was torn as I applied to multiple schools. I knew I would relocate closer regardless of acceptance. The more I visit Galveston The more I like it. Granted I am still interested in knowing the outcome to my other schools!! Good luck to all those still waiting for your favorite choices!

    I agree. I have visited a few schools. They all have rude staff, waiting times, difficult process in some way, etc. Overall I really enjoyed UTMB itself and what it has to offer after all the paperwork. This is also a second degree, career change for me. Not all schools do an essay and interview. I felt like with UTMB I got to be more than just grades on paper bc I didn't have the highest overall gpa from my 1st degree but my nursing prereqs and overall gpa since I've gone back has improved. Look forward to meeting those starting in January. Hang in there to those still waiting. I'm a firm believer in things happen for a reason. Things will work out just how they are supposed to for us all!

    Not sure. I was just concerned with due dates and making sure I was on track. Also knew a lot of people were curious about the fb page so I asked about that as well. Sorry I couldn't be of help to those waiting. Good luck though! We are all rooting for yall! Hopefully your wait is over soon.

    I asked about the facebook page and also the new student guide. UTMB says everything should be going out soon for all accepted.
  8. Nope. I haven't received anything other than being asked about the fingerprinting stuff for the board of nursing.

    Yeah I asked also. They said there is a list of like 30 locations and that you provide your top 10 I think and they try to give you one of your top picks if it works out.

    Thanks. I will look into sand and sea. I have seen that before while looking around. Yeah I figured people start giving notice 60 days ahead or for beach type houses once the summer months are over. Thanks for the info!

    For those with houses or renting houses, any suggestions on realtor or advice on how you found the house I'd appreciate! I also have a dog which makes renting a house really desirable for me.

    I would like to either do an apt or rent a house. I did the roommate thing when I was in college the first go round, like 10 years ago! Now I'm at a point in life where I just want to come home and relax where it's quiet! Unfortunately that costs more money though!

    I love to swim and want to get into a better workout routine. Gonna need stress relief! When I move to Galveston for school I am looking forward to having that option. I used the gym all the time when I got my 1st degree. As a grown up after college I didn't ever want to pay for it!

    I went through my doctor and that allowed me to file with insurance. Several clinics are reasonable but they are like cash prices. If you are close to UTMB they are the cheapest. You can set it up with student health immunizations.

    I don't recall seeing the email but I did apply. Does it give dates due or dates they notify or anything?

    Not yet on the fb page. The school said to contact them and they'd get it started once the new semester got started. Where did you go to apply for the scholarships? Were essays required? What all did they entail?
