    I don't know any of them personally but I have ran into several West Coast graduates who are currently working as RN's while doing my clinical rotations. Several of my classmates have friends as well that are working after graduating west coast.

    Did they get good jobs, or bottom of the barrel type stuff?

    I don't know what you would consider "good jobs" as opposed to "bottom of the barrel". I think jobs are jobs considering the economy we're in and the scarcity of jobs for new grads, especially here in California. However, in regards to your question, I know of graduates getting jobs at places such as White Memorial and know of some students who have gotten in at UCLA and Kaiser as well.

    Im going to be going to WCU as well in Orange County! im getting a few more pre-reqs transferred before i start..
    I have a friend who is an RN and said that she knows three people that went there one got a job the other are still working at graduating.. ive heard some promising stuff of new grads getting hired from there..

    plus we will have a BSN which puts us miles ahead of the ADN folks!

    Well good jobs would be considered working at a nice place, getting paid well, etc. Bottom of the barrel would be the opposite. I agree a job is a job, however, if there is a shortage in jobs, which is soon supposed to be the complete opposite, why take someone that went to WCU over someone that had to get accepted at a more well known school? As a matter of fact, I know there are actually a decent amount of jobs, they're all posted.

    I hope so, that makes it sound a lot better.

    Jobs really depend on how much experience you have. I currently attend WCU and I have two job offers as soon as I'm done, one of which is a magnet hospital. What helped me land them though is that I started working for them while in nursing school. My managers basically hire on PAID work experience and not clinical hours. Out of my graduating class, about 10-20% have already been offered jobs but again it is because we have paid work experience.

    My advice to you, take all your prereq classes at a CC and transfer in. It'll save you about 30-40K.

    Hi! I am currently attending a CSU and did apply to other CSU's but I have a feeling I will not get into them... My GPA is sort of low. I haven't taken the TEAS test yet but the TEAS test is what they look at for entry into west coast correct? I am looking into attending west coast. Is it a good school? I feel like people say it's really hard. Also.. it costs a lot too. Did you have to take out a lot of loans?
