  1. WGU Prelicensure (former WCU student)

    Yes. Los Angeles, CA.
  2. Hey folks. I attended WCU for a bit over a year. Did all my prerequisites and started in the first clinical term. However, I've been battling with depression for many years and it unfortunately got the better of me for a while there, and so I ended u...
  3. Just a quick update: it looks like, after talking to you guys and to other people, that I'll be starting at National in October, and working as well (since their pre-nursing schedule is only 2 evenings a week). No loans required. Yay. Thanks for all ...
  4. Thank you. I'm also the type to knock out a bit of overtime here and there, and your tale gives me confidence. I'd like to escape with as little student debt as possible! I'm most likely going to remain in the greater LA area so hopefully I can do ve...
  5. Yep this is on my agenda. Isn't gonna happen, no worries :) A quick glance at jobs sites suggests this might not be the case...but I can't relocate either way so we'll see. My "perfect world, if-I-ruled-the-world" scenario is having GI bill co...
  6. Thank you. WGU wants all the prerequisites done first, but National it looks like bakes them in AND has a post-bacc format. They're still expensive, but less so than WCU by a large margin (GI Bill will probably cover it). I went ahead and set myself ...
  7. I want to be an NP. Eventually, I'd like to work in an ER. My initial entry wish is pediatrics, but I'm pretty flexible in that regard.
  8. To be clear, talking about $150k in loans was exaggerated. Assuming no other aid, I'd need more like $50k for tuition, and then I'd have to figure out living expenses, which are defrayed quite a bit by the GI Bill, thankfully.
  9. Makes sense; however, relocating is not an option.
  10. Thanks. I was mostly thinking of folks who aren't fortunate enough to have the Gi bill and how they could make it work when I do have that and I'm still uncertain. I doubt I could GET 150k in student loans, haha, but I don't need that much. I'm hopin...
  11. Well done, that's very impressive...but I've spent 10 years unhappy already, and I'm not willing to spend another 10 to enter the ground floor of my chosen profession. Ya know? I don't disagree about the GI Bill, though...
  12. Yes, really $130k. Crazy, I know, but compared to trying to get into CSU or UC it's at least worth considering, depending on your goals and life situation. I'd be at community college for a year or more before even entering the lottery for a spot - a...
  13. Haha. Perhaps so! I'm too old for that even if it were something I'd do.
  14. Hi everyone, I'm getting ready to start at West Coast University in a couple of months, and I'm trying to work out how I'm gonna make ends meet while going to school for ~2.5 years. If you don't know, WCU quotes $130k for their full 39 months, which ...
  15. Rio Salado offers nutrition but not orgo. It's going to be tough to find an online-only orgo, I think.
