  2. Breastfeeding and nursing school
    I knew that as an employee I'd have rights to pump. I just wasn't sure how this would go as a student. Even with pump breaks not being a problem, I'm still really nervous about making this all work....

  3. Breastfeeding and nursing school
    Well, we've covered pregnancy and nursing school many times since I've joined this forum. How about any tips for breastfeeding and going to nursing school. I had my baby just about 2 weeks ago. I...

  4. Can someone please explain the cohort thing to me?
    The prelicensure programs uses cohorts in the traditional sense. I think they are trying to carry that option over to the RN-BSN program. From what I can see this is something newer to the RN-BSN...

  5. Reapply to BSN program? Or take the ADN seat?
    I edited my post which you had missed because I took note of the fact that you are in California which makes a lot more sense your drive for bsn only. I am grateful that I don't live in a state with...

  6. Reapply to BSN program? Or take the ADN seat?
    This is my second attempt at nursing school. My first attempt was 10 years ago. My grades were great, but it was taking a toll on my family so I decided to wait until my kids were older. I decided to...

  7. Anyone in or finished the pre-licensure online BSN program?
    You get a calendar for the whole 2 1/2 years once you're accepted into the program. It has all the lab dates and clinical windows mapped out for the whole program. You will know all of the 2 (or 3...

  8. This may be a short WGU inquiry
    Nope, I'm in the Indiana program and I live out of state. They will let you commute as long as you are fully aware that you are responsible to get to your clinicals and willing to commit to it.

  9. Anyone in or finished the pre-licensure online BSN program?
    Usually it's 3 days one week and 3 days the next, but not necessarily 3 days in a row. It could be like Mon and then Thur and Fri, but it can also be 3 days in a row. It just depends what your...

  10. Prelicensure BSN program
    No way you could get an only Fri-Sun clinical rotation. The labs are weekends only, but the clinicals can be weekdays or weekends. You really don't get that much input on clinical dates. However,...

  11. Difference Between WGU Pre-licensing Classes and Traditional
    Caring Arts and Science Across the Lifespan CASAL I and CASAL II are Med/Surg 1 and Med/Surg 2, Chronic Care is still Med/Surg type material, but with a focus on chronic health care problems. ...

  12. WGU Indianapolis Prelicensure
    I'd apply. I think you'll get in. I'm in the Indiana program. As for when, that I'm not sure about. It won't be that long. Usually a new cohort starts every 2-3 months. I'd just call and see when the...

    Yes, the simulations are very challenging! They definitely require you to use critical thinking.

  14. Prelicensure BSN program
    The didactic is the theory part, not the clinical work. (In other words the class with written tests.) I'd say about 50% of the original class is about right. Please keep in mind that you can retake...

  15. Prelicensure BSN program
    It's all pass or fail. To be honest I haven't seen anyone not make it into the clinical portion in any of the cohorts in my location. I have no idea what you would have to do to not make it in. Hope...

  16. Prelicensure BSN program
    There has been a couple program changes since I started (and they do seem to change the program rather frequently so always double check things). Anyway, the first 6 months do not have clinicals....

  17. SC injection sites with ascites
    I took care of a pt last night who had ascites and needed 2 SC injections. I gave both in the back of his arm because it just didn't seem like the meds would be really going into SC tissue in the...

  18. Prelicensure BSN program
    What made me go to WGU is I have a large family. There is no way I could make a traditional program work. I wanted to be a nurse forever and I knew I could make this work because I could do most of...

    Limited lab time - I mean you have weekend bootcamps. Usually each new set of skills you learn over 2 weekends and test on the 3rd. You do have lab instructors and instruction, but really you need to...

  22. Can someone check my math?
    It said round to the nearest whole number. I looked and they have a mistake on the rationale. I didn't catch it because the rationale was in dimensional analysis. It's totally missing a step. Thanks...

  23. WGU PRE-REQUISITES
    They take CLEP tests for the prelicensure program, can't say for sure about the RN to BSN. I would imagine they would though. I took a CLEP test for humanities, human growth & development, and...
