I am a current prelicensure student at WGU...I started in February '12. I am not sure about all the specifics of the GPA, but I do know (like other nursing programs
) that your sciences are the most important. Your A&Ps, chemistry, etc. You can take biochemistry, nutrition, pharmacology, and I think possibly a couple of others if you need them, at WGU. They will have you finish the prerequisites before you start the actual program. For my cohort we had 3 months, but I think they have since changed it.
You will have to take the TEAS V, which is an ATI test. WGU uses ATI's tests throughout the program. There is a study manual for the TEAS V, just make sure you get the one made by ATI (doesn't have to be from their website, though). I took the TEAS V and scored a 90%.
I did not have any healthcare experience at all...my extent of healthcare was applying band-aids to my children and handing my husband a Tylenol. There was an interview...a couple actually. I also had two really good letters of recommendation: one from my A&P teacher (I was also a tutor for A&P, so that helped) and another from the owner of the hospice company my husband works for, whom I have known for years and have worked odd-jobs with.
I read another person's comment to make sure you are speaking to the correct counselor...and YES, make sure you are! Ask every single question you have on your mind! They have the information, make sure you get it.
I hope some of this information helped! Good luck!!
