    How exciting for everyone to be starting this coming year! I'm also planning to start. I would like to start in April. How long does it take from the application process to when you get to start the actual program. I want to start the program by April. Would you suggest I start applying now? Also, I work at a hospital that is affiliated with WGU but I would like to do my hours at another hospital that is apparently also affiliated with the school. Am I able to choose?

    Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions!

    Hi Nursingheart21, I would suggest that you apply now as it takes time to send transcripts and have them review it. Plus you have to take the entrance assessment, etc.. It's better that all your requirements are ready As far as BSN goes.. There are no clinicals.. There's just a practicum at the end where u get to choose ur own topic.. Im in CA so I had to find a preceptor myself. You can do it in any hospital as long as you find a willing preceptor. I was told that in other states, theres no need for a preceptor. Check w ur enrollment counselor. Good luck Merry Christmas!!

    Thank you so much for the info. Do you happen to know anything about the Masters program? I'm planning on going for the msn- education. Merry Christmas to you too!!

    Hello! I am a WGU Hopeful. I have all of my pre-reqs done with the exception of A&P II with lab which I plan to do next semester. I have a few questions as I am interested in the CA Campus (Pasadena, Cesars) Their website says "Highly Competitive. Of course it is highly competitive as there are so many of us that are trying to get degrees! However, there are no clear guidelines. I'm thinking it would require a 4.0 in Sciences. Has anyone applied to the CA locations that was accepted and would be willing to share your grades/TEAS score? This is for the prelicensure BSN not the RN-BSN option...Thanks to anyone willing to share information!

    Issues in Behavioral Science
    Language and Communication: Presentation
    Applied Health Care Statistics
    Biochemistry
    Health Assessment
    Clinical Microbiology with lab

    More then I had hoped but I am ready to get started.

    I have just completed the masters program and it is a lot of writing and three exams are included. The exams can be a bit tricky. It is doable and you will do great.
