    I have a 2 year old and a 3 year old. I think it may be doable if you have a good support system. I have wondered the same thing. My husband travels for work, so when he is away I will have to ask my parents to help out with the kids or find a nanny/child care. Where there is a will, there is a way.

    I let the house go when I have to study. The dishes can wait! ;-)

    We do 2 10-12 hour clinical days a week. I would say I study at least 20 hours on top of that. It is a very intense program from day one! That being said, I love it. My kids are older- seven and ten. I don't know if I could have done it when they were smaller but there are plenty of people in my cohort with little ones. Also, the program is fast- 18 months and you are a BSN. I am in my second semester. Good luck to both of you.

    I am really scared right now About not being accepted in to the traditional program this spring
    3.0 Sciences
    81 Hesi

    I am taking my Hesi 1 more time on April 6th at UTA to apply with that...
    I cant get my score up for the life of me

    Does any one think what I have right now is competitive enough I don't think it is but really want it to be I cant bring my Hesi up for the life of me me especially in vocabulary. I am re-taking Micro in the summer to make an A and bring my science GPA to a 3.5 but I know I will not be applying with that to spring UTA since it is due june 1st and then taking path and pharm in the fall

    Does anyone think these scores are good enough at this point?? also how to hospitals really look at people who do the online program I have never done it because I think hospitals would pass on me

    It's hard to say just knowing your science GPA. A lot depends on your overall GPA, considerations, and whether or not you are partnered.

    Based on what my advisor has told me and what I have read online, if your overall GPA is lower than a 3.5, then you will probably not be competitive unless you are partnered or have at least a couple of considerations. As far as the HESI goes, I believe they are concerned with whether or not you passed, and not your actual score.

    Hope this helps somewhat. Good luck.

    Hi Frankiedarling,
    Your HESI is good enough for UTA, they just want a passing score. If I were you I would a) try to get a job with a partner hospital (this will greatly increase your chances) or b) keep retaking the science courses to get the science gpa as close to a 4.0 as you can. It may take more than one try but you can definitely do this! I would apply now, but know that it may take more than one try. Many in the program got in on their 2nd or 3rd try.
    Good Luck!

    I forgot to mention that the program is well regarded with the hospitals.
