Hey paige! Can't believe we start in two weeks! I'm so excited!
Please let me know how ya'll like the program! I just moved to CA from VA and am so discouraged with the waitlists and competition at the community colleges. I am going to be contacting a WCU representative today. I know it's a lot of money, but I'm hoping that financial aid helps some. I've already completed 67 college credits, so I'm hoping SOME of those transfer!
Hi,I'm really interested in attending WCU for the bsn program,however I am reluctant to do so because of the cost.I came across ur post and wanted to ask how are things going so far at WCU?and having all the pre reqs you have how much different was the cost?
Hello arreanamarie! So far Paige and I really like it! We both have physiology at the moment. We are getting started on the 3rd week of our first term so still getting know how it all works. My professor is actually a doctor at a local hospital which is very encouraging! We have exams every week. It's a lot of studying and homework but this is to be expected when your classes are only 9 weeks instead of 16-18 like other colleges. The cost of the program with no prereqs done is $132,000 I transferred 5 or 6...I don't remember and that dropped it down to $116,000. Now that price includes your books, uniform, and fees as well. I have chosen to buy books outside of the school website which will save me a tiny bit lol. If you are ready for the big commitment, cost, and are tired of wait lists I really do encourage wcu. Any more questions let me know! =)
Thank you so much for responding =).Very encouraging having a dr as a professor.Do you know if they have a MSN program?
I believe they do at the LA campus. If you look onthe website they discuss the programs they offer.
I am enrolled at WCU- Orange County campus and I'm supposed to start June 20th. I have a few pre reqs done and such and I'm accepted and ready to go! There are a lot of posts about this school but not many actual experience stories. I feel that this school seems to be what you make it. A LOT of money, but I think in the long run it will work out. Any thoughts and opinions?
Hey I already graduated from there. It's a new BSN program, so there are a lot of perks that they had to test and reevaluate throughout the time i was there. So, to go there requires a lot of flexibility since you're pioneering through their program. A lot has changed as far as the program goes. For example, they used to have us test out of every core classes with HESIs and it used to be do or die. lets say you're getting an A in the class prior to taking the final HESI, but then you fail the HESI (you get two tries)..failing it can make your A an F. So you have to repeat the entire class over. Now it's just the ATIs, which i think are easier than HESIs and it only counts for part of your grade. I think it's unfair to make us go through all those rigorous testings, but in the end I think it was all worth the stress since, as far as I know, everyone's passed the NCLEX the first try! Gluck!
