Hi Everyone, I got a 75% on my TEAS V test. I know I needed to get at least 85% on my Teas V score to be competitive on most BSN programs. I found out that West Coast University is now... Read More

    Hello, I was wondering if those of you who attended WC could please offer feedback. I am hoping to enroll for October but truly need some helpful reviews from current students or grads.

    I am attending in October. I have 2 prereq's classes that I will do through West Coast. Everything else I had transferred over. My debt is wayyyyy less than 100,000. Mine will only be about 30-40k and that's because with financial aid, choosing to pay for my books on my own (instead of through WCU) and taking majority of my pre-nursing classes at community college level, I saved a ton of money.

    Has anyone completed West Coast University RN-BSN online? I am finishing my ADN program soon and looking into WCU online.

    Is it just me or does everyone you mention West Coast to do a face cringe?

    I am applying to WCU Anaheim August start. I am in the middle of figuring out the financial aid. I am very nervous about this kind of debt but i believe this is the best option for me. I don't have any of my general Ed classes done and Community college would take me too long. How do you like WCU so far? Any feed back is great appreciated. Thank you!

    Yes the community college route would take longer, however it will take way longer for you to pay off your enormous student debt from that private nursing school. So in the end, the community college route offers the fastest route to financial freedom.

    Hi, thank you for posting, I am in the process of getting into west coast university, they say that on the TES V they required a composite score 192. 2 so if I can get a 78% or greater on the test, will I be a good candidate?

    Hello everyone! I'm new to the forum. I previously applied to WCU a couple months back but didn't go through with it because I wanted to wait to see if I had a chance of being selected in my hometowns lottery system ADN program.( which by the way I applied for TWICE already) Unfortunatly I was not selected for the second time. So now I'm in the process of re-applying to WCU so I can get on with my nursing classes already. I'm from Bakersfield so my commute to the North Hollywood campus is roughly 1:45-2 hrs. Most of my credits transferred from my CC except Microbiolgy (which was my LEAST favorite class of course). Anyway, I've never lived in any part of Los Angeles and it is very expensive in comparison to Bakersfield especially on top of the tuition. Is it possible to work while in the program? What advice would you give me given my situation.

    I'm in the same boat with you guys! I can potentially start in January of 2018, I'm just waiting to see what classes got transferred to WAY from the cc I attended and I'm nervous about it! It is expensive but I honestly believe if you study your butt off anyone can do it!
