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 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.
DO NOT attend this school. Do not let them lure you in by the cost of the RN-BSN program. The classes are disorganized, little to no student support for online classes, teachers/professors/coaches do not promptly respond to your needs in order for you to improve your quality of work or your understanding of the class you are enrolled in. There is always a "hold" on your account that keeps you from completing your homework, thus setting you behind and affecting your grade(s). The online books and other required materials are not user friendly and end up costing you extra. For example, I was told to look to amazon to buy a book, so I did. It turns out that I still had to purchase the book from the library in order to be granted access to a work book. This is not what I expected. I changed to a different University.
Do not go to this school! I repeat do not go here! They are not student friendly and just rude! Some teachers are disorganized and do not give clear instructions for assignments. The academic advisors act as if you are bothering them when you need to call them. I hate I wasted my money here and wish I would have done more research on other online family nurse practitioner programs. Also no help with finding a preceptor for clinicals. This is pretty much a self taught program!
Great program. Diverse class mix. Great instructional, easy,well laid out format. Easy to understand materials.Instructors will return your email within 24 hours maximum 48 hours. Well spaced out weeks for each class, and between when the next class starts. platform was blackboard. Worked full time and family I would recommend this program for any working Mother or father .IT was very easily accessible and polite. Instructions are based on evidence-based-practice models. You can easily use your learned tools and skills to make a difference immediately at work.There are numerous MSN programs online except the one I was interested in. They are losing money and student by not offering that particular Program an online .
Welcome to the worst University in the universe. I am doing online master program and I had two courses at the same time, I did not know that. This is online master program and students cannot take two courses at the same time. But I did it. I failed the one course because I did not know that. Either my professor or AP coach or my advisory informed me about it. As a result, I failed the course and I have to pay the course fee to get the course. Last year, me and my friend asked our advisory to take two or three course during summer. But the advisory said no because this program is accelerated program. Overall, the system cannot allowed to students to take two courses but I did it and I failed it. No one made a contact with me. I send the email my advisory and I did not get the final answer about the course fee. If I cannot pay the fee until this month end,June 30, I cannot get the course. I mean I have to wait one more month. That's why, the worst university in the Texas. Advisory, she is very busy. Professor and AP coach are very busy to send an email to student when they forget or do not turn in assignment. It was my last course to complete my master program which is Curriculum and Instruction in Math Education.
UTA offered an exceptional program that allowed me to advance my Associate's nursing degree to my Bachelors. The instructors were responsive in a timely manner and very helpful. The IT personnel responded to any issues that I had in a timely manner. Everyone was easily accessible. I appreciated the complete online program. It really allowed me to continue working at my job, while in school.
The BSN program was an excellent program that provided me with the necessary skills and knowledge to enhance the care that I provide to my patients. The course instructors were readily available and provided well structured guidelines in order to meet the expectations of the course.
The University of Texas at Arlington's College of Nursing has a profound background in nursing. All instructors have a rich background of knowledge and years in education. The program is exclusively online and could be accessed at anytime. The assignments are reasonable and the knowledge earned could readily be utilized on the field. Discussion with your peers through a forum called blackboard enforces the weekly assignments assigned. The program could easily be completed while maintaining employment and the support from advisors are sound when issues or guidance is needed. I recommend this institution to any nurses with an associates who wants to further their education.
I took the RN-BSN Academic Partnership which is 100% fully online. There are a lot of benefits from this program such as being 100% online, flexible schedule, and not too much debt obtained. Instructors are easily accessible by email and classes are short and can be taken one at a time which is great for a busy working nurse/mom. A couple drawbacks include that some classes seem to be more focus on APA formatting than content, your not allowed to take classes outside of those required through the academic partnership, if you make a bad grade in a class your not allowed to retake the course to make a better grade, and its very hard to get advisors on the phone for assistance. However, in comparison to the complaints of other online programs- these are very minimal. I am glad I chose this school for my BSN and I am planning on continuing with UTA for my Masters as well.
