    I am in the WGU nursing program in California. I am over half-way done and I can say its a good program. Luckily I got in the 2-year program before they extended it another 6 months. From what I've heard, they extended it to allow students more time to complete some prereqs during that time. If you guys have any questions, let me know.

    I know a lot of people do work and go to the program so I think it's possible. I do not work, but I also have 7 kids so there is more to adding work into the schedule for me. I really love this program. I have been in a nursing program before so I can compare it to traditional school. It is to me equally as hard, but so much easier for me to juggle my time around. My whole life hasn't come to a screeching halt because of school. I don't really think there is anything to start studying because I'm not sure how much it would help. There is a lot of paper writing so you should be prepared for that.

    I have a classmate that works full time and two that work part time and they are able to keep on top of things. They just have to be more dedicated.As far as studying beforehand, I don't think it will help. Just show up on day one and be prepared to write a lot of essays.

    I am applying today to the program. Does anyone know when the next cohort starts? From this board it looks like april. I have a bachelors in PR/ Advertising and I made an 87 on the TEAS (but I have a low overall GPA). Anyone that starts this week, please let me know how it is. Congrats and thanks!

    I took A&P through straighterline and they accepted that. My enrollment counselor actually referred me to Straighterline. However, that I know of they are looking for biochemistry as a prereq not chemistry so I am not sure they will take the chemistry class. They will let you take biochemistry as part of the nursing program if you have all the other prereqs done. I wouldn't spend the $ I'd try and take it through WGU. That's what I did.

    I copied this from their admission requirements section

    Biochemistry - This is the sole science prerequisite that may be taken at WGU. All others must be met by providing transcripts with transfer credits equivalent to WGU requirements.
