Have anyone applied UTA Spring 2018 on-campus and online yet?

  1. Hello!
    I am a current student in UTA.
    I was a transferred student, so I finished most prerequisities classes and all my science courses from a Community College.
    I finally finished all my pre-nursing courses & upper division elective course in UTA by this semester (Spring 2017).
    I just took HESI a few days ago, and I was able to apply to the Nursing school in Spring 2018 for on-campus and online.
    (However, I prefer on-campus)


    I have heard that the Spring acceptance letter would come around
    September (my friend told me who have accepted in UTA nursing school for Spring 2017. My friend was not waitlisted).


    I am curious when people will hear again for their acceptance if they were waitlisted for spring semester? And does UTA do "first-person-first-serve"?

    My overall GPA is 3.5
    (I ruined my GPA so much after I took pre-nursing courses T_T)
    and my Science GPA is 3.8.


    I know people who are waitlisted for Fall 2017 even though they have good GPA.
    ( One of my friends got waitlisted for fall 2017. My friend's overall GPA is 3.9 and took some courses from CC. This news made me very scared and discouraging T_T )


    Do you think I have a chance to get in nursing school?

    You definitely have a chance. When I went in for new student orientation last month, they advised us to have GPAs from 3.5-4.0 in both science and overall. Hopefully, you are chosen in September. I'm actually applying for Fall 2018 as I still have Patho, Pharm, Stats, and Upper elective to take. I current have 4.0 science & 3.81 overall. I wish you luck for Spring 2018

    I thought you had mentioned the online program. My apologies. I wasn't sure if you were in the area

    UNiversity of TexasArlingtons online program is also accessible throughout other parts of Texas. That is why I asked

    Oh I see. I applied for both programs (online and on-campus) just in case If I don't get into the on-campus program.

    I got 2 emails in one day:

    I was waitlisted for online program and then I received I accepted into on-campus program few minutes later, so I took the on-campus offer right away without hesitation because the on-campus was what I wanted to do all these years.

    I think online program requires more from students, such as you are working in the parner hospital when you are applying to program . I am currently working at the hospital and heard my hospital was a partner with UTA few years before, but now they aren't.
    So when I was applying for the online program, I had to say "I am not working at the partner hospital".

    I can't really give you any information about online nursing program in UTA because I have not searched much about UTA online nursing program.

    I hope this helps

    Yes definitely. Thanks a bunch. If you don't mind me asking. The hospital you work at are you a CNA or PCT ?

    haha. I am glad it was helpful
    CNA and PCT are the same.
    Hospital would call PCT (Patient Care Tech), which is CNA.

    But PCT do not need to do total care by themselves because the nurse would help them.

    Right. I'm aware. My question was in terms of your job at the used to be partnered hospital. I was wondering if you were a CNA and worked at the hospital and are now deciding to do nursing.
    I know I ask a lot of questions haha. I'm curious about what routes to take
