"I'm doing the ADN to BSN. I have only the capstone left. I HATE IT. All the classes have been discussion post due on Wednesday, Quiz and Homework. Have I learned anything? No, I'm pretty much using everything I learned in my ADN program. I have just spent an unrealistic amount of time on the class assignments, forget getting to the reading and lectures. I can't count the times I've been frustrated by no explicit instructions, no examples, and being docked points for annoying things. I could go into them, but UTA has wasted enough of my time as is."

"Not there for the student. I am taking online courses due to working full time and having a family. I have taken six courses over a 3 semester period. Had a problem 3 different times in 3 different classes. The first one, I had a family member pass away unexpectedly and was going to be gone from Friday-Sunday with no internet. I let my coach know and she told me to send something showing that I someone passed or was having a funeral. Ok, no problem, I sent her the obituary, she gave the information to the instructor, and they gave me until the next weekend to get my assignment turned in. NP. The second problem I had was when I was taking a timed quiz with 25 questions, I got through the 4th question and it froze. I ended up having to shut it all down and sign back in. By the time I got back to the quiz, there was only a few minutes left. I only made it through question six and the rest were counted wrong. I made a 24. Right after being done I emailed the coach and she wasn’t sure what to do. Waited a week for her to figure it out then contacted the instructor. She told me there was nothing she could do about it, that it was too late. What? Then there is the 3rd. I sent in an assignment, the program told me it was received, so I go back 3 days later to see what my final grade is and it shows my assignment was never received. I notified the coach and the instructor. The coach said I should have made sure the assignment was turned in and the instructor told me it was too late, she had to turn the grades in. So twice my grades got screwed into the 70’s. I pay for my classes and spend a lot of time doing to the work to get 90’s. So I called the school about this, they told me it’s all up to the instructors. Hmmm. So I’m paying someone to tell me they can’t help me and give me bad grades when things glitch. They know there are going to be problems at some point with online courses between using windows or IOS, the internet, and canvas. I am not paying another dime to these people."

"I am a California RN who began my AOBSN program through UTA 08/2019, immediately following becoming licensed. The admissions process is very easy, the classes themselves for the most part aren't bad. The student support is subpar at best, though (which isn't an issue if you can self teach and navigate the courses on your own), often academic coaches in classes don't answer questions in a timely fashion (if you're in an accelerated class that's only 5wks long, you better ask all of your questions at the start of the week because you may not hear back until the day before the assignment(s) due date). What they DON'T tell you upon admission, is EXACTLY how many classes you will be required to take if you are an out of state student. Texas has a lot of state specific requirements that you will not be told about up front (two history classes, two political science classes, a technical writing course that has an English writing prerequisite class that you have to take before you're able to enroll into one of the core nursing classes, and more than likely a contemporary math class which is a requirement to take for the same nursing class..so you're looking at easily 5-7 additional classes on top of your core 10 nursing classes and your nursing elective course). The school advertises a blanket price of under $10k for the program which, as many of us will find after researching different BSN programs, is very appealing. They also advertise that you can get your BSN done in as few as nine months! Sounds really great, especially for those of us working full time and just want to be done with school. However, you will find that even going full time, you will more than likely not be done anywhere near nine months. I found out a YEAR into my program (yes, i said a year) that i needed a total of twenty classes. This is because the advising team is horrible, they will schedule appointments with you and then not reach out to you, if you do get through to someone, the phone line often gets disconnected and no one will call you back. I have never gotten a response from them via email, despite how much they claim to always be easily reachable. Each advisor i speak with states i need more classes to satisfy requirements not listed on my degree map. I thought i had two semesters left, turns out i have three..and have already been at it full time for a year. This program has been disappointing and i would advise those that are interested in it, to look elsewhere unless you are a Texas resident already. This program is not for you. You will not be done quickly, you will not save money on your BSN. You will more than likely find yourself frustrated by the lack of communication and student support, as i have."

"UTA is a great school, I received my BSN from this school and I will recommend this school to anybody who wants continue his/her education and be successful. You can work and still have time for the assignments, even for me who procrastinate I managed to keep up with all my assignments and passed every class with an A or B. The teachers are dedicated in what they do, they posted assignments on time with clear instructions."

"The admission process is horrible. Customer service don't have the knowledge for helping you if you need help. They transfer you somewhere and you wait all day. Don't even bother to apply to finish your nursing degree here. They will call you a 10 times a day to make you apply but once you applied. You are by yourself."

"I was a part of the nursing program and loved it! Classes are tough but you will get a high quality education. The school is far more economical than most schools and has a very high return for your investment. Would definitely recommend! UTA is now my home!"

"Seriously the worst college I’ve ever attended. The advisors are THE WORST, especially in the nursing specialty. They will tell you things that aren’t true and then you end up not being accepted into the nursing program after going to the university for 2 years. It’s unbelievable how much money has gone into this school and they give no exceptions. The teachers are all shit and don’t care about the students passing, they’d honestly rather have you fail and have to retake it again. Don’t waste your time here seriously, Texas women’s university is 10x better than this place, hell a community college is better than this place. It’s like they want money so bad they won’t tell you the truth about anything just to get you to keep spending money. Ridiculous"

"UTA Nursing program is a great program to consider. The school is very considerate of working moms and offers flexibility in how you can obtain your degree. You can opt for on-campus learning or on-line learning. You also have access to counselors that help keep you motivated and accountable. I actually had not registered for my courses. I had a counselor call me and tell me to log on right now so we can get you registered. I appreciated that because by registering, that began the final stretch I needed to complete my BSN. The only thing about the program I would change is all of the research papers required. I don't think this is specific to UTA, but rather, all nursing programs. I would like less papers and more clinical experiences and options."

"Do an extensive research before you rush into enrolling for their AOBSN for"15 months" . this is the length just of their nursing program before that you will need another 70 credit hours. The advisers will NOT tell you all the truth about being accepted in the program. Many people with great GPA stay on a wait list for years, because preference for acceptance is given to people who are employed by the hospitals they work with. This means you might have higher scores and be wait-listed , and somebody who works art time in one of the hospitals, even as a cook let s say, with lower scores will get in front of you!"

RN to BSN - 2/26/2019

"Do your research before enrolling in the RN to BSN online program. The advertised tuition of 8995 dollars is only for your nursing courses and does not include books or other fees. If you have additional general education courses, it will cost more. I already have a BS from another program. So I figured I wouldn't have too many or if any general education courses to take. Wrong! UTA required me to take the following classes: two Texas history classes, two government classes, one art appreciation course, one math class , one cultural/language course, two English classes , and one anatomy and physiology class. Note: I had already taken college algebra, art appreciation class, two English course, and two Anatomy and physiology class. These general education requirements added up to 10 additional classes on top of the nursing courses I was required to take to obtain my BSN. My advice is to have UTA evaluate your transfer credits and talk to an academic advisor before you enroll. This way you will have an idea of what courses you need to take. Don't forget to check into how much it will cost you. However, if your not keen on having to take additional general education courses, I suggest you look into another college."
