I am here to tell you be careful if you were on academic suspension from a different college. You will have to sign and agree to not withdraw , cannot have F or D or below a 2.0. so basically even if you did the right thing you will be punished. Dismissal is what will happen. It's something I wish I had known before spendings 100s of dollars here. Another thing is that you will not get the right help from financial aid, because most of them are below the age of 20, and really don't give you good advice If you planning on coming to this university be prepared to be in financial debt, and spending money on parking ,about 3.75 an hour in the garage. Most of the students are uptight because it's UTA and not all of them are. You will end up graduating with a history or music degree just to finish there. The atmosphere is great and all but I guarantee you ,money speaks greatly there. I am currently at tcc and discovered other Texas have alot of courses from tcc that can greatly reduce your time at a university. Some are UNT,TWU, Wellesley, and more. Add a note, that's why they accept alot students it's because of money,money money ......
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!
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 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!
