    Hi Suggarwugga, Just heard back from a rep at DNI and I'm so depressed. I have to take A&P I and II, Microbiology and a Life class?? They won't accept the classes from my LVN school. All that on top of Pathophisiology. I won't be able to start this year as I had hoped. Oh well, hopefully I can get on top of things quickly and get some more info from you and others before I start!!! Like notes, study guides, etc!!


    Sorry to hear about you having to take extra classes. If you are an lvn you can work for baylor or jps, and go through there a p program through uta, you will still have to take some prereqs. but you will have ur bsn instead of your rns. Also the classes are all online,(6 to 8 weeks) and your clinicals will be at the hospital you work at.

    No problem, go to http://stateu.com/uta/nur_bsn.asp that link will give you more info. Yes all the classes can be taken online, except clinicals and I think chemistry. Because it is a bsn program it will require you to take a few extra classes like gov and history if you havent already. Once you get your prereq out the way they say its 15 months. Good Luck

    I am seriously considering the ADN-RN program at DNI. Can you tell me if the schedule is everyday all day? I would like to at least work part-time while in school.

    Hopefully Sugarwugga could verify this for me since she started the program this January. During my orientation in October, I was told it is an 8 hr a day/5 days per week program. Clinicals would probably be on the weekends!

    Thanks for the info. It kind of makes it hard to work unless you work in the evenings. I am an EMT and my shifts are 15 hours so that pretty much means I would have to quit working.

    Hello everyone...sorry I have not been on the site to reply. I just finished my second week at DNI...what can I say...I am tired....It has been so much I don't know where to start. First if all , the first day was great orientation and all. Then on to the classes. It has started out as 8-2pm for the first two weeks. Multiple classes,
    OB, Mental Health, LVN Transition to RN and Physical Assessment. Its really a fast pace program. I am really enjoying the instructors and the staff. Everyone will say and think differently, but I am so glad I chose this program. Classes and Clinical are during the week and no classes or clinical on the weekends. They really laid everything out for us. We got some of our books, our uniforms and clinical bags. Once alot of the local students find out about this program they will just on it quickly. It is well worth it. I am just looking forward to graduation....
