texas tech BSN

  1. Hi,

    I am applying to the texas tech SON for entry in summer 2007 for the BSN program.

    Can anybody tell me their opinions on this program, and its reputation?

    I am a male; how accepting and supportive of male nursing students are they?

    I am hoping to start at the TTU SON as well in August. So far I can't tell much about the program. I have heard it is not as hands on as some other programs, but I have also heard you really learn your info well.

    I went there YEARS ago... I am sure it is different now.

    I graduated in 1992. Overall the instructors were nice. Men were still new to the nursing field back then and I didn't notice too much favoritism or bias towards them.

    The biggest advice I can give you is, stay on the instructor's good side and you will do fine.

    Hope you enjoy it.

    Is this the online LVN-BSN bridge program? I heard that Texas Tech offers a program such as this but have not been able to find anything about it.

    I'm currently enrolled in the RN-BSN program at Texas Tech. I can tell it's one of the best schools I've gone to! The instructors are very friendly and easy to reach. Having had lots of hands on in the ADN program, you need more of management and research(which you didn't do a whole lot on during the ADN program). It is very unique and focuses on research. It's also accredited.

    We also have males and females in our class and everyone is treated equally. It's strictly online and you only have to go there only three times. First is the mandatory two-day orientation and the other is the graduation.The graduation is not compulsory. Another very important thing is that you have to do your schedule at work in such a way that you don't work on tuesdays because that's the day you meet and chat with your classmates/instructor if needed.

    I work full time(72hrs) and still complete my school work, it's that easy. And the thing that helps me most is that i work ahead and turn in my assignments early, that way, i'm not stressed in any way at all. It's all research work, no tests.. I can't wait to graduate! I started in January and will finish by July! Amazing!

    how it is mostly researched based if it is all clinicals?

    I've been looking into this program myself, for the near future (have the graduate ADN first).

    I was told about the program by a school nurse when I did my school nursing clinical day last semester. She was a great advocate of the program and the school. In fact, she's now doing her MSN online through TTU. She said it's far easier than her ADN was, they had very few "papers to write", and no tests.

    Can you do it from any where in TX? I am interested but live and work full time in Houston, TX?

    I know several people in deep south Texas that did or are doing the program, so I'd say yes, you can do it from anywhere.

    Ok but do you have to be an RN? I have an LVN and a BS.
  14. by   Bortaz, RN
    Yes, I believe it is an RN-BSN program. Not sure if they have an LVN-BSN transition. You might want to check out their website to see if they offer that. If I recall correctly, I don't believe they do.
