After going through the entire enrollment process only 46% of my associate degree credits transferred (which I have already completed and I'm currently practicing as an RN with) and only 42% of bachelor degree credits transferred. I had already completed a large number of credits toward my bachelor degree at my previous university. UTA enrollment advisors told me that I would have to submit a course syllabus in PDF format to petition for each course that was not accepted. I asked for a list of all... Read More

I would not recommend UTA to anyone especially not for the nursing program. The courses are definitely difficult, but I enjoy the challenge and enjoy science. Once you start the nursing program you will spend the first year to two years in non-science related courses like Texas history for example. The courses are incredibly strict with grading, due dates, and testing environment. Be prepared to never hear from your advisor even if you email or call them a million times. Advising appointments usually... Read More

I wouldn't recommend University of Texas at Arlington RN to BSN program for my rat. Once they have you sign up for the program , they will just leave you wondering what to do next, what class to take and so on. Then, you'll find your self begging for help. I'm feeling like I'm in educational gamble. At UTA what you hear is not what you get in reality. Education department should stop this scammers. They post all five weeks assignments on canvas without any explanation. Those videos on modules are... Read More

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... Read More

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... Read More

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...

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... Read More

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... Read More

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... Read More

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... Read More

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... Read More

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 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... Read More

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... Read More
