Hello! 

I have recently been accepted to WCU, and I would love to hear from students who have graduated from the Orange County campus. 

Are both the Los Angeles and Orange County campuses approved by the Board of Registered Nursing? Were you able to apply to graduate programs after graduation? Thank you for your help! :)

Hi! I want to apply to West Coast University Los Angeles but I'm not too sure. What was the application process like? Are the classes going to be online or in person? Thanks! 🙂

Hi Em123!

In order to apply, you may attend an orientation that tells you about the program. If you decide it is a good fit for you, you can schedule a date to take the HESI (unless you have already taken the TEAS). You are assigned a specific guidance counselor (which is very helpful). From there, you can submit official transcripts from prior schools, and fill out an application. Acceptance is based on points that include grades and test scores. I will say, tuition is high, as it is a private for-profit university.

We are currently online right now for general education courses. I'm not sure when classes will switch to on-campus. However, the professors so far have been awesome, and it feels like a very supportive environment. Personally, I really like it. 🙂 All in all, do what is best for you personally and decide which path you feel will lead you to where you want to go!

Best of luck to you!

Answer: West Coast is accredited by WASC, CCNE, and BRN.

I know of a grad student at Cal State Long Beach who actually graduated from West Coast, so you can definitely apply to grad school afterwards. :)

@futurebsngrl

Check the CA Board of Registered Nursing Site

NCLEX Pass Rates: https://www.RN.ca.gov/education/passrates.shtml

Accreditation, Attrition: https://www.RN.ca.gov/education/attrition.shtml

Somethings to consider:

WCU is generally known to be expensive. Be careful to not go into a huge amount of debt. If you have cheaper options take them. Consider WGU online.

NCLEX Pass rates are not bad especially considering they push out so many students.

Attrition doesn't look great, but that's probably due to the amount of students they let in. If you do pretty well in school you should be fine.

WCU quality: I didn't attend, but have met grads and they have gotten jobs quickly as WCU helps and has some connections. Most grads said it was OK but complain about the large class sizes and cost.

Thank you for the info! Haven’t been able to get information regarding graduates getting into graduate programs in cal states or uc’s. I know Mount Saint Mary’s accepts any student as long as they are accredited and have their state license.
