Hi,

I am eyeing WGU for the Pre-Licensure program. I already hold a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology and have done medical case management for some years now and just recently got my CNA. I am looking to attend WGA in California, but am not sure if they are still accepting applications as I understand that California is one of the more competitive areas. I have not had a chance to take my TEAS exam as some of the other schools I have applied to do not require it so I missed the last time that WGU was accepting applications for CA. Anyway, I am curious what type of TEAS test scores the school most frequently accepts. My Science Pre-Req GPA is a 3.5 if they include Chemistry and higher than that if they do not include Chemistry. I am just trying to prepare myself for the application process and am interested to get feedback from people who are currently in the program for California as I have only seen someone from the TX program post. Thanks!

Right now WGU is not accepting applications for the California nursing program as it is on hold and they do not know when that will be lifted. It is the most competitive state when it is going and a TEAS score in the 90s is almost always required to be competitive.

Thank you Ashley! Curious if you know what types of GPA the program considers competitive and if they calculate the GPA on the sciences or based on all pre-requisites, e.g. public speaking, English, etc.

A competitive science in Cali is high 3 and it is based on only science grades!

Hi Ashley,

Thanks for the feedback! I did not see your response until now, but again. Thanks! 

P.S.

I am studying for the TEAS and not sure if you know what the average score is for a person who usually gets accepted to WGU? I heard the 90's, but I wonder where within the 90's the average accepted student falls. Just asking because some of the state schools, you need to get a 94% and up to be competitive. Either way, I am shooting for the stars to get the highest score possible. Thanks in advance! 🙂
