We are just entering the first real semester of the nursing portion. I felt the pre-nursing curriculum was easy to handle with full time and work and family. I was able to finish a month early and added 2 classes onto the term. We are in week 3 and it has been a little heavy with lots information, not unrealistic, but still have to sacrifice some of my family time. I have been able to study at work as well, which helps. Not much time for personal activities, but my choosing to study every possible moment. Lab days are on the weekends about every other month. In the first term there are about 9 lab days. Clinicals are spread out some. In the first term there are 2 clinical times, hours are completed in a 2 week period, sometimes 3. They are not flexible with that schedule. Once you are scheduled, those are your days. No options or choice of days/nights/weekends. I believe that WGU provides you with lots of tools necessary to succeed. The mentors are great, lots of support and they want you to succeed. I suggest start talking to an enrollment counselor and begin the process. Do you have medical experience? It will help greatly. Hope that helps.
