    Psata. You don't know me so don't assume. I dont attend WCU and don't plan too. I just happen to be browsing the forum and I have responded on other threads not just WCU. If making a statement about not harshly attacking people who inquire about a school really bothers you the I apologize. I don't endorse any school nor promote them. Just giving an individual feedback as the moderators say everyone has a freedom to speak. If only WCU post your looking at them that's on you. I have seen people call others stupid and an idiot and all kinds of harsh words. I just say they should not be disrespected with such words. If it's allowed on this website then let me know and I will keep quiet and avoid all the negative threads.

    I am not a student of WCU nor have any affiliation with it. Just Stated there was no need to speak so harshly to individuals on a forum that should be positive and for people to receive feedback. WCU is not where I am attending or plan to attend. No need for the attack. Sorry if you were offended. It would be nice to see positive feedback and conversation here on a public forum between students, nurses and graduates.

    ADN to MSN

    The best thing for you to do is go on the websites of the school. WGU is accredited for their programs and graduates students all over the United States. They have ACEN or CCNE accreditation which is what is needed. No State accreditation is needed for higher education programs for RNs. Only ACEN and CCNE like Klone and Commuter has already explained. I believe they are WGU students. Actual students can give you feedback more than anyone. You will not waste your money on WGU. I will be starting pre-licensing with them myself and I can not wait. I hear alot of RNs are in their program and LOVE IT! Go to their website and learn more about them. Online University | Online Degree Programs | WGU
  6. Thats cool. How will you work going through WGU and living up north. I am born and raised Oakland, CA. I asked about hospitals joining in for clinicals up north but was told no time soon.

    Applying to UCLA MECN to start Fall 2015?

    Thank you! I may look into this program. For those who are already in the program: How is the class scheduling and hour requirements. Is it doable to work and school?

    Yeah Sac is very cheap. I was living in Sacramento prior to moving to So Cal. Big difference in COL. I go back every year to visit family and my best friend and my daughters father is still there. I miss being in Sac. I do plan to move back in the future. SF is much more as well. I feel for you with that move. It's good there are 2 of you and not you alone.
  9. I hope they find more locations as well. I have been in the process alittle over year getting everything together and was finishing the last degree program I was in. I always email my counselor to get updates on the dates. I am always asking if there are new locations as well. They are alittle slow at that part. I have 2 classes that I am completing this semester at community college then take my TEAS exam then I am submitting my packet for the October Cohort.

    The cost of living in So Cal is higher as well. Especially in Los Angeles County. You can find some less expensive places to reside in the Bay, just have to look and find some spots just outside of Oakland.

    Yeah. Way too many Nurses graduating in So Cal. I agree. It is very bad out here in So Cal. I am from Oakland so if I Could go to school there now I would. I have some obligations here in So Cal for now. Once I graduate from a BSN I Plan to move back home to either Oakland or Sacramento. But Depending on what happens by the summer time I may return before getting into a BSN and go with SMU. They have a Sacramento Campus so I may apply for the ABSN or the ELMSN NP.

    Try applying for West Coast University in Los Angeles for a BSN. Cost $130,000 for the program. $60,000 is nothing. Up there alittle but worth it for a school with high rep and have existed for 100 years and still going strong and producing quality health professionals. Plus there are plenty of bed side nursing positions. SMU student get an advantage at their clinical site Summit Medical Center.

    Applying to UCLA MECN to start Fall 2015?

    Hello everyone. I got an email from the UC President about the UC system so I looked around on the website for the nursing programs. I have a bachelor degree in human services and finishing 2 science pre-reqs. I am interested in the Master's (MECN) program. I am curious because I did not see it, but is there an assessment requirement such as the TEAS or anything? Thanks for any response.
  14. Most of the posts you find here are nurses taking the RN to BSN program, Not Pre-licensing. So don't confuse yourself with those dates. Thats not for pre-licensing. There were no January dates. January if for RN to BSN. Always ask for a Pre-Licensing Enrollment Counselor. There are Pre-licensing enrollment counselors for Southern California. I can give you mine in private message if you want. The pre-licensing process is the same for the whole school no matter which state you take it in.
  15. You will never get any dates for any programs on the website. Only the Pre-licensing enrollment counselor can provide that. They are the only who have the dates. My enrollment counselor sent these dates. Contact your Enrollment Counselor for any updates or changes. 1. July 1, 2015 Orange County cohort Deadline: April 1 2015 2. August 1, 2015 Pasadena cohort Deadline: May 1, 2015 3. October 1,2015 Cedar Sinai cohort Deadline: July 1, 2015

    I am pushing for the October cohort for Western Governors University, or I am trying National University. I wish I could go through SMUs 12 month program. I would love to get it over with quick. I have a bachelor already and getting tired of school but I am determined to get my BSN. So while I am still in So Cal I will make the best of it. SMU has online information sessions. Check their website and they post the upcoming dates. They are good with talking to you on the phone too. I thought I was going back home last year but it didn't work out.
