Thanks for all of your advice! I was a little worried when i saw how MANY vocab terms were listed so its nice to know there's not that many on the exam!
wow i hope i have that many transferrable credits! I'm going down to take the hesi and get my transcripts evaluated in 3 weeks. How much did you end up saving (if you don't mind my asking?) And how difficult is the hesi?
omg i'm from norcal as well! Let me know if you find a way to locate a roommate or housing help through the school! Where are you moving from? I'm from Chico so its gonna be like an 8 hour relocation for me...ahh lol
I also have been having a hard time getting in touch with anyone at the anaheim campus. Does anyone know what the school's break schedule is? The school i am currently attending has spring break from the 16th-20th of march and since i'm not from the area i was going to travel down there to attend an info session and take the HESI during that time but i haven't been able to talk to anyone to confirm that school and staff would actually be available that week. I'd hate to make travel plans and then not be able to do anything productive with the school so if anyone knows if they'll be on spring break that week as well please let me know!
It's been really informative reading all of your posts about this school so i wanted to say thank you! I heard from the LA representative that WCU is getting inspected for a regional accreditation in April, has anyone else heard this? And if its true do you know what the odds are of them actually receiving it? Thank you so much for any information you are able to share!
Thank you so much! That was very helpful! My main concern is going to a private nursing school and receiving an ADN but then not being able to further my degree to a BSN or NP later on. I've heard that many degrees earned at private schools end up being difficult to transfer. One of the main schools i'm interested in is up for CCNE accreditation in April, do you know if this is a regional accreditation?
On this same thread (on pg 2) someone left a link that takes you to CCNE pending applicants and WCU is listed :wink2: But when i talked to one of their representatives and tried to find out how confident he felt about getting said accreditation he wouldn't give me a straight answer other than to say they are being evaluated in April...
But they're a CCNE applicant right? How likely is it that they will actually receive that accreditation?
I would also be interested in hearing about anyone's experience at this school!
ACICS is a national accreditation, not regional, and from what i've learned on here regional accreditation is necessary to transfer to CSU/UC programs. I think (and i'm not positive) that if they become CCNE accredited you are much more likely to be accepted in to another school, but until that happens the units you earn at WCU won't be transferable. I hope this helps and if anything i said was incorrect please correct me! I myself have been trying to research this school and am trying to figure out what all the acronyms really mean lol Oh and does anyone know how likely it is that they will actually become CCNE accredited? Are schools often looked at but not chosen?
I recently looked on their website and saw that they now offer a BSN program. Does anyone know anything about this? What the prereqs are? And is tuition alone $67,000 or does that include books and living expenses?
I've recently finished my nursing prereqs and am looking in to schools that (hopefully) don't have a waiting list. On the website for WCU i saw that they offer a new BSN program and I was wondering if anyone knows anything about it? Or if you have attended the school I would be interested to know about your experience.
I'm looking in to attending in fall '09 but i may procrastinate until spring of 2010 because i have so many reservations at this point lol
I decided to apply and keep researching while i wait to hear back. I'm also looking in to other private schools in cali but their programs aren't as accelerated as iuon. One thing i'm really worried about is finding employment in my home state after i become licensed in another state; i've heard that i'd have to take another test to qualify for licensure here. Finding out all of this informatin is quite a process! I really appreciate everyone on here for helping!
