    Class updates:

    All GE done pending grade on papers from Art History. Current GPA 3.88

    Hi lvnrnmd2be,

    I have only touched the surface of Biochem, so it is probably too soon to say. The first lesson is 3 chapters of which I am almost done, just working on the last few questions of the third section. I have logged my hours with biochem while I was doing statistics and A and P II. If I had to break it down, I would say around 2 hours per chapter??

    The final is proctored, timed and not open book. Did you say you were doing biochem with berkley on-line? if so, how is that going?

    All the best!

    i was considering berkley but went with calcampus.......its 12 chapters , no book just powerpoint slides for each chapter 12 quiz, midterm and final....its pretty straightforward and the test are not proctored.....i took statistics with straigherline was not fun.....and also A/P with straighterline which was ok ..

    Oh yes, cal campus. Sounds like the course work is doable. When did you start your course?

    I can relate with statistics being no fun! that course was a major challenge for me as well. Glad it is over!

    Straighterline A and P I have found challenging as well, but doing better in A and P II...now that my computer issues were resolved.

    Best of luck with your biochem journey!

    Hi, I'm considering applying to WGU. I have a 4.0 in all the prereqs and am currently taking pathophysiololgy online. I was accepted into a BSN program that I can not afford to go to and would like to start my BSN this fall! My only concern is that even though I am a CNA I am currently unemployed and do not have a letter of reference from a health care employer to use.
    Has anyone used a professor for a letter of reference? I am in CA if that matters.

    I am in the Indiana cohort and I did not have a letter of reference from a health care employer (or for that matter any employer). I haven't been employed outside of the home in over 10 years. I used personal references instead- one from one of my former employees since I owned my own business and one from the school board at my kids school where I volunteer. They accepted them. I'd submit with professor and see what happens.

    Anyone know what science class are considered for calculating science GPA for WGU. I remember my advisor say it was A&P micro biochem. But I am looking at my wgu eval and it also has nutrition and pharmacology under nursing related science?

    hi guys...need help with the application process.

    to be considered for enrollment into the pre-nursing curriculum, you must meet the following requirements:

    • possess a current cpr certification at the healthcare provider level.
    • submit at least one letter of recommendation from your current healthcare employer.
    • submit official transcripts from all previous institutions that show:

    so, those are the 3 things needed for the initial application for the prelicensure??

    so the long list below is for when you apply for the clinical program?? or do i send all the above together with all of below??
    * must possess health insurance and obtain student malpractice insurance.
    * must pass a criminal background check.
    * must pass a urine drug test and a physical exam.
    * must pass the emotional intelligence (eq) test and demonstrate the attributes of a successful nurse.
    * must have a current immunization record and negative tb test.
    * must meet the physical requirements in accordance with the core performance standards of the nursing profession.
    * must provide a 1-2 page student statement that describes your prior experiences and reasons for pursuing a nursing career.
    * must participate in an interview with nursing department representatives.
    * must meet any additional wgu admissions requirements.

    is it two letters or one? on the website it says one, but the generic message from the program director says two letters.

    another question, does wgu have a form for the letter of recommendation? or does recommender just write the letter on their own letter head??

    and how do we know when is the next cohort??

    i have asked all these things and other questions through email twice, but my enrollment counselor, director of nursing, director of enrollment (because i got generic emails from them) but all of them failed to answer


    thank you.

    yes, you need these 3 things for initial enrollment. make sure you get cpr through the american heart association. they don't accept the red cross one even at the provider level - kind of annoying because i had to retake it.

    these are done once you are accepted into the pre-licensure program.

    for me, they wanted 2 letters of recommendation, preferably from a health care employer, but turn in what you can come up with. they also wanted a letter describing your prior experience and why you want to be a nurse. i also had to turn in a resume. they did not give a form for the letter of recommendation.


    and how do we know when is the next cohort??

    you'll have to ask on the cohort. i can't really figure out how they determine when they will start a new cohort. i know for me they started in indiana, i think the first was november, then january, then february, then not again until june. just kind of random if you ask me. i'd call instead of emailing. everyone at wgu has always been very helpful for me.

    Thank you so much supermama, really appreciate all the info!!

    One more thing I forgot to ask... Do I tell the recommenders to send letters directly to WGU or do I submit it together with the CPR Certification?

    Thanks again.
