Hi everyone! I figured I'd start a thread for UT Arlington's BSN Spring 2020 applicants! 

First off let me start by sharing a few things:

- UTA nursing school acceptance is based off a composite system that consists of your SCIENCE GPA (Anatomy & Phys 1, Anatomy & Phys 2, Microbiology, Chemistry), OVERALL GPA, and Considerations. 👩‍🔬

also, TEAS scores don't affect your acceptance into the nursing program, unless you don't meet their requirements of course. 📝 I'm taking mine this Friday so I'll let y'all know how that goes..

also side note: Considerations depend on wether you're applying to the online or on campus. We can only apply to either or.. 

 

As of right now, I have 3 considerations: 

- military veteran

- 30 hours at UTA

- 3 out of 4 sciences at UTA

 

I won't know my official science GPA or overall GPA until after this semester ends....

If you are applying for fall 2020, another thing you need to do right now, is go get your Hepatitis B titer, because if you are not immune, you will need to repeat the Heb B Series and that can take 6 months to complete, between the vaccinations and the follow up titer. 

They tell you to do this but they don't tell you that you must submit it within two weeks of your acceptance notice. The Fall 2019 class got their emails of acceptance March 8 and vaccinations and titers are due March 25 at 8:00am.

Go read up on everything you need to do on the UTA CONHI webpages about the vax's. You cannot start too early and you could lose your spot.

There is a waiver that I have heard some use if they have the vax's but waiting on titer results/have not completed the second series but the web page says it's for if your second titer says you're not immune. I don't have first hand knowledge with that except for what I have heard people say they did, so don't count on the waiver. Get your titers and vaccinations asap

Also, check your Hep A vax records. Some childhood records have the Hep A Vac closer than 6 months apart. UTA wants 6 months, so you need to get the titer or do the vax again.

i'm applying for Spring 2020 AO as well! I'm going to take my TEAS towards the end of May bc i need to refresh on everything. I'm one of those that couldn't apply for the Fall 2019 class due to my vaccinations not being complete. I had to wait 6 months for the Hep shot :c and didn't know until it was too late!

Hopefully we all hear good news by the end of this year!!

Hi! 

I'll be applying for Spring 2020 AO, as well. I have taken my TEAS and completed all of the requirements on the checklist. Now, just to apply and wait! I'm so excited to be getting that much closer!

My only consideration is that I am partnered.

Overall GPA: 3.655

Science GPA: 3.75 

Total Points= 7.405 

Fingers crossed I'll be good to go!

From my understanding they only accept TEAS for new applicants.

"Complete the Math, Science, Reading, English and Language Usage sections of the TEAS Exam. Applicants must score at minimum in the

proficient range of 58.7% - 77.3% overall and in each section. The TEAS can be retaken every 30 days with a maximum of three (3) times in a

year. TEAS scores are valid for two (2) years." - UTA Web page

I'm not too sure about out of state, but I would email them at bsnadvising@uta.edu.
