Aug 21, '13Quote from SilverLoveI am applying to the next cohort, which is January 2014, here in LA, Ca. I was wondering, how hard it was for you to get into the clinicals (or even the program itself).. I'm assuming that you are attending WGU! Since, I am applying to other brigde programs, I want to be able to have a guarantee that I'll start my clinicals if I do end up choosing WGU. Thanks so much!I thought I would chime in since I had some info about this topic. You can apply to WGU as many times as you want. I know that you can apply and if you dont get in, they ask you if you want to be considered for the next cohort. One thing that is not very promising about WGU is that once your in that does not guarantee that you are put into clinicals, you pretty much need to go through another process to try to get put into those. I find it ridiculous that once your accepted into the program you have to worry about getting into the clinicals. If you get into a school you shouldnt have to worry about getting clincal assignments, those should be automatic.
Aug 21, '13Quote from slicksGIRLSlicksGirl, I ended up going with another program. I had too many questions and concerns about the WGU program. One of my main concerns is that I had seen the graduation pinning video which had 3 students and at the time, I found that one of the WGU grads was having a hard time finding a job, unfortunately that was a big red flag. I also did not like the idea of having to worry if I would get into clinicals since once your accepted into the program does not guarantee that. And lastly, the length of the program is way too long, so at the end all those concerns were too many to put aside. But please keep in mind this is all for the pre-licensure program, I can not speak for any other program. These were just my concerns.I am applying to the next cohort, which is January 2014, here in LA, Ca. I was wondering, how hard it was for you to get into the clinicals (or even the program itself)..

I instead got into a 1 year 2nd BSN program that I have already started and love. God willing by this time next year I will have completed the program and have my 2nd bachelors.

Sep 27, '14SilverLove Which program did you choose. I was looking through the posts here and saw this one.
Are you in California? I am in California. I wanted to attend WGU due to the ability to keep my job and still go to school. I can't find any other program that I can do it with.
