    Congrats I'm so Happy for you! I'm in the same boat no one understands the accomplishment or excitement yes it's an online program but it's still hard to get into and we're gonna be busting our butts to pass our classes and the nclex. I just got accepted into the feb 1st dallas cohort! I'm beyond excited. I know we're not close but I want to move back to Houston when I graduate so maybe in 2 years we will be working at the same hospital lol! I have a nursing blog on insta that you can follow we can help each other and encourage on another through the program! Since it's all online it's harder to connect with others! It's wgu_future_rn!

    I recently finished the prelicensure program and it is a difficult program to complete (it's nursing school!). I already have another bachelors from a top university and the WGU prelicensure challenged me in ways my other degree never did.

    Just because portion of the degree is online does not equate being easier. If anything, I had to be even more vigilant with my studies because the core nursing classes you need to take ATI (maker of the teas) exams which a good amount of nursing schools across the country also take. Furthermore, you have to take the exams at a proctoring site and not at home.

    Yes,ATI tests can be beasts! I definitely don't miss that from Lvn School. Where did you attend? Can you share some of your experience? I know I will have to be extremely scheduled because I'll be traveling quite a bit.

    Congrats! I am in Houston and hoping to eventually get into the WGU program. I have one semester left of pre-reqs and then I will have the checklist completed! Do you have any advice that you can give me as far as getting accepted into the program?? What were your GPA and TEAS scores like? I'd also love to know more specific info about the program as far as your clinical sites. I work at Memorial Hermann Memorial City and was wondering if it's a clinical site, and what the clinical dates were like. Thanks!!!

    Don't stress about it, so many people may wish you ill or doubt your abilities. But remember to keep focus. I was whiz kid when I was younger, I completed my LPN program before I exited high school.I had CNAs that hated for that fact, I attempted school several times, even had scholarships. Yet, I was just not ready. I placed jobs, boyfriend, and friends first. I have fibromyalgia ,and I just stopped coming to class due to pain and fatigue. After a while I became a failure, either succumbing to fatigue and pain or my old self sabotage. This year I fought against all of that ,and I'm on the president's list,and was admitted to my LPN-RN bridge. Guess what, I only told a handful of people. So I can focus on me and not whether those folks give me a pat on the back or smile in my face. Because it didn't get me anywhere before ,and it sure won't get me anywhere now.

    Keep pushing!

    "yaaaay! Congrats!"

    I think 26 is actually very young for WGU pre-licensure, I'd venture to say you're probably going to be one of the youngest ones in your cohort....just saying. Anyways, congrats and best of luck to you.
