Looking into UTA RN to BSN program need advice

  1. Hello!

    So im graduating with my ADN in less than a week and i am already looking into BSN programs...
    Does anyone have the actual program schedule? How do they do thier classes? How many prereqs did you end up needing besides the Nursing classes? Does it really only take 13 months and the $9000 they advertise or is that only if you dont need any prereqs?

    Also if anyone has any other school that do RN to BSN without clinicals that they looked into and liked better let me know... im hoping to get this done as quick as possible without clinicals and without spending an arm and a leg.

    Its 9000 in addition to the costs associated with any prereqs you need to take, so it depends on what you have done already. You can theoretically get it done very quickly if you have most of your prereqs already done and you have the time and cash to do the classes. If you do two nursing classes during most of the five week block schedules then you can get it done very quickly. You need to goto their website and look at the schedule to see when classes start and end and then decide if it is for you. Honestly, it depends on how dedicated you are to completing this and what kind of student you are too. Most people will complain that it is too much work to actually complete their degree, don't be one of those people. So just get it done and stop worrying so much and learn to research and compare programs.

    Texas Tech RN-BSN has no clinicals and takes one year fulltime. That does not include pre-requisites (13 month UT Arlington program does not include these either).

    I am about to graduate UTA's program in a little less than a year from starting, I had no prereqs to take. There were several people in class with me doing their prereqs at the same time. If you've taken freshman english, you start with tech writing at the same time they took the A&B course - which is the first. Everything has to be done by capstone. There are a few papers, a couple of field assignments... nothing super crazy difficult, assuming you've got decent time management skills.

    I started in Oct. 2011 had 2 core course and the 9 nursing classes and I will finish in Aug. 2012. So, about 10 months for me and the cost was about $8650 without fees.
