I don't appreciate you verbally attacking me or the program. I have worked VERY hard to get where I am. I was valedictorian of my medical assisting program, a tutor, and mentor. I work full time and have managed to get almost straight A's in my nursing pre requisites, so don't think you're the only one that works hard :) You said in your post that you go to a school in the middle of nowhere? So how competitive was your program? Maybe you didn't have to put in the "hard work" and go the "actual acceptance" route you were talking about. In my experience, schools that are in the middle of no where and that are liberal arts are not as competitive for nursing or any major at that.
I have actually chosen to go a different route through a lottery system and that's only because I have to stay local right now because of personal reasons and I have the stats to do so, 3.89 GPA and very high TEAS and HESI scores.
You don't need to bash WCU or anyone who wants to/or is currently attending this school.
However just so you know, WCU is FULLY accredited. It's acredidted by WASC and CCNE. I've had many family members and friends go through this school and they have said nothing but wonderful things about the program. They are all employed at either Kaiser, Sutter, UCDMC, UCLA, Hopkins or at private practice. My mom is also a charge nurse at Kaiser and they LOVE WCU graduates. They love how smart and knowledgeable they come out of the program, the pucuality, the experience from clinal sites, and how they were taught in SMALL personable environments.Next time you comment something negative, make sure you know your facts!!
