Anybody attending WCC or going to be applying there? I'm on track to apply for the Spring nursing program. First I have to take the PAX on July 6 and keep my fingers crossed that I pass!... Read More

People I've talked to that have taken both have said the PAX is more challenging. Most people I know still pass - the one friend I can think of that failed did study, but unfortunately test taking isn't really her strength.
I didn't apply to WCC, I did my prereqs there and applied to AU and NIU. The AU application process wasn't bad. The day of the TEAS you also fill out some essay questions for them, but they were pretty straightforward. Pathophysiology is one of the classes first semester but can optionally be taken ahead of time if you are done with A&P II already. Some people took it over the summer before the semester started. At least on our set of questions, they ask you when you plan to take patho so that's something to think about in advance!

I'm looking back into WCC's program but just don't know if I can do it because of work. How was your experience???
