I have a question about the 90-hour community health practicum. Does WGU require that you perform this task within the community of your residence, or are you allowed to choose a community? In my case, I recently moved to my current community, and I would like to do the project with my previous town of residence. I lived there a long time, and I know everybody, so it would be much easier to get access to resources.
I graduated from WGU in August, and my community health practicum was my final class. I guess they are transitioning the format for the hours right now, so my hours were a little but of a compilation of old and new style. I think that doing it in a community that is not your own would be fine, but I would ok it with your course mentor. I had to do mine in my county as opposed to my town due to size. My advice to you is not to make it harder than it is- I spent countless hours doing things that I didn't count as hours because I didn't know how/if they were eligible. When I finally called my mentor I realized my mistakes, albeit too late. I passed, but I definitely made the assignment harder than it was. Good luck.
