UTA College of Nursing and Health Innovation
The University of Texas at Arlington College of Nursing and Health Innovation is located in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex, with campuses in Arlington and Fort Worth. The college is a member of the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA), which means it meets rigorous national standards for nurse anesthesia education programs.
The university offers an Accelerated BSN program to students who have completed an associate’s degree in a related field, such as nursing or allied health. Students can complete both degrees in as little as 16 months by taking full-time summer courses.
Students interested in earning a bachelor’s degree without having earned an associate’s degree may choose from one of three options:
- A traditional four-year curriculum that includes classes taken concurrently with their co-enrolled high schoolers during their senior year
- A 2+2 program that allows nursing students to complete two years at UTA before transferring to another school for two additional years
- A 4+4 program that allows students to earn an RN license during high school then attend college for four more years after graduating
There are many options, it’s best to visit the campus.
Visiting the campus is the best way to get a feel for a nursing school. You should talk to current students and faculty, alumni, staff members and financial aid officers. If a school’s admissions office isn’t able to answer your questions about how satisfied current students are with their education or if they’re up-to-date on state regulations for nurses in Texas, then you might want to consider looking elsewhere.
The registrar can also help you determine whether the nursing program at that particular school has been accredited by one of several accrediting bodies. Accreditation is important because it ensures that nursing schools meet standards set forth by an independent organization dedicated solely to maintaining high educational quality in higher education institutions across North America (and beyond).
There are many options for nursing schools in Dallas. It’s best to visit the campus and meet with a representative before making your decision. There will be some costs involved, so make sure you have enough money saved up before starting your program.
