Perspective Second-Degree BSN

    I'm revisiting WGU because I am finding it increasingly challenging to attend a nursing program (husband active-duty with the USAF). We are currently stationed in England and will be stationed in Montgomery, AL in July. My biggest question is regarding the clinicals. Is it possible to travel to one of their clinical sites? Are clinicals completed in blocks or are they integrated throughout the entire program? If completed in blocks, how many are there and how long do they typically last? Finally, those of you that have been through/or are going through the prelicensure program--did you feel prepared for the NCLEX? What do you think?

    I am not yet part of the program as I am working on prereqs, but if you contact an adviser, they are very helpful and can answer your questions.

    I don't know about blocks, but I do know that clinicals are 2-3 days per group of classes (I am not sure if that is considered a block as you are defining it) - there is a detailed listing on the website about when they have clinicals if you click on more info pdf document - it details each class and clinical time -

    Are you interested in doing the prelicensure program? As far as I understand that can only be completed in certain states and I don't think Alabama is one of them...

    Yeah, I spoke with admin. You can only apply if you're living in the particular states the program is being offered. Bummer. Hit a brick wall again.

    Have you looked at Texas A&M Corpus Christi's e-line nursing program? I am not sure if they take out of state students, but they do have an e-line military program so it might be worth looking at.

    They are for the most part in blocks. I am commuting from out of state. However, I think Alabama is way too far to commute to any of the locations. This program has a lot of flaws and to be honest I am not sure at this point I made the right decision picking this school. At the time I enrolled it seemed like the best option and there are some good things about the school, but if I had another choice of a different school right now I would be switching.
