Non-resident WGU prelicensure

  1. Hello everyone! I recently moved to MI from WA and I'm considering applying for the prelicensure at WGU but the RN Prelicensure program is only available in CA, TX, IN, UT, and FL. Wondering if I'll be able to enroll being that I'm a non resident? Any advice with be much appreciated!

    You must be aware that the clinical portion (700+ hours) and the skills and sim lab portion take place only in those five states. You would need to travel to/ from a clinical location approximately 20 times during the 2.5 years of the program- for 2-5 weeks at a time. For some students with strong support systems, it can work. however, it is VERY difficult to pull off. You would be better served moving to the state.
