    I am currently applying to wgu for their nursing program. I took my pre-reqs at United States University (USU) I know it sounds like a hoax type school, but I did my research and they are WASC accredited! So I could care less what the name of the school is. I completed all of my pre-reqs in about a year. This school has two campuses one it San Diego and one in Cypress. I like the fact that people really don't know about this school because my class size for most of my science classes averaged 8 people. Classes are 8 weeks long too. Oh and the best part they are only $250 per unit which is way cheaper than other universities and with no wait time better than the community college. Back to wgu...my experience so far is great. My admission adviser lets me know exactly what classes I needed. I forgot to say when I was done with about more than half my pre-reqs I had wgu look at my transcripts and they all transferred over. So now I need to take my teas test and then apply in the beginning of next year. I am pretty confident I will get in.

    Always wash your hands, introduce yourself, check physician orders, check patient wrist band for name, MRN, room number, and birth date. Ask permission to touch patient. When palpating for a pulse, do not push too hard. Your knuckles will turn white and the assessor can tell by this indication that you are pressing too hard. The hardest most difficult assessor quit, probably from all the student complaints, so it should be easy compared to what most other students went through. Always make sure the side rails are up if you are away from bed. Always raise the bed to a comfortable height and lower it before you are done. Verbalize everything you do.

    I am so sorry, I should have asked, it is just because it is such an important test that I just wanted to have an idea, but anyway, thanks:-)

    Yes I still use that email. We are not allowed to tell anyone what we were tested on. The reason is because it will give others an unfair advantage. And, I did it without knowing and you can to! You have all the answers right there in the check lists. This is the easiest one besides the first one were you have to take vitals and make the bed.

    Very true. This is what I learned in CNA Class and MA Class. Very basic nursing skills to remember.
