Does anyone know approximately how long it takes to get a pre-license BSN at Western Governors University?

Well, first be aware that he program is only available in five states. Indiana, Florida, Utah, California and Texas

A successful applicant must bring in some college credit, including prerequisite science classes. Then there is a pre-clinical term (terms are six months long).

Upon successfully completing all of the above, there are four more terms of clinical courses and experiences. So, at a bare minimum, five terms or 2.5 calendar years.

It is also a continuous enrollment program, so unlike a traditional semester based program, there are no breaks or vacations.

so can you do everything online until you get to the clinical portion of the program?

Yes. Everything until the clinical terms is online.
