If you do a search on this forum regarding UTA RN-BSN program, you'll find several members who is very satisfied with the program. Also, if you do some research on other RN-BSN programs, there are many that don't require a clinical, and have very rigorous classes ranging from 5-8 weeks. The school is very well-known and is CCNE accredited. But if you don't feel comfortable not completing a clinical and taking 5-8 week classes, there are other schools to choose from.

UW Green Bay has an online RN-BSN program that seems to have the "traditional" semester classes and a required clinical. The program is also CCNE accredited.

I will graduate from there in December. Most of the classes are based on research, leadership, and management that is why there are no clinicals. There is one assessment class, but that is the only class that has anything nursing skills.

The 5 week format can be intense but they have the program designed to perfection. No complaints at all!

hi everyone,

I was wondering for those who were accepted into the program, did u complete the 3 required pre- nursing courses (Pharmacology, Pathophysiology, & Intro. to Nursing) before starting the first official semester of the Nursing Program at UTA? Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

I just graduated with my BSN from UTA accedemic partnerships in December and I recommend this program because it is affordable and has no clinicals. The research classes are a bit tough but the program as a whole is pretty good. I am now in the MSN program now and it is alot harder. Hoping to pass my first class.

I just finished my last week of Professional Nursing B today. I was very satisfied with the courses. The lectures and assignments were interesting and the workload was very reasonable.
