I am going on my third week....started with Tech Comm. and Prof. Nurs A. I am also taking a prereq thru a community college to save cost.
I am getting the hang of it now, but I think the layout of the online classes is rediculous. Blackboard is not so bad, but Epic is awful. In comparison to the online course through the community college, it is pitiful. Very difficult to navigate, delayed responses from instructors (up to 3-4 days), and unclear instructions for assignments. I have been making all A's, and now that I realize I am on the right path, it is less stressful. But, initially I had no idea what was expected or how to do it.
Tech Comm at least offers sample assignments---which is very helpful considering you never get to make contact with an instructor or other students for guidance. I also think the material is dull and repetitive, but that's just me.
However, I have a feeling most RN-BSN online programs are the same and this one is definitely the cheapest I could find...now I know why!
Good luck to everyone! I do not regret UTA and would recommend it, it's just not that much fun.
To sum it up: material is boring, but easy. The courses difficult to navigate and understand at first. Support? very little, if any.
