wgu pre license

sheabay sheabay (New) New

Is it true you have to have a degree before you can be accepted into the wgu pre license program? I have my certified nursing assistant license as well as a physical therapy aide certification. I have worked in the health care field. I am an Indiana resident. Anyone have any helpful insight to the program? I do have a phone interview set up.

Yes, you need to have a degree, like an associates degree (2 year degree). It also says this on their webpage.

Thank you. I saw that after more research. I thought they might have offered some of the perquisites but I was mistaken.

You DO NOT have to have a degree unless they changed that within the last few months. I have been in the program since Oct. in Indiana. I have 17 years work experience in the health field, but I do not have a degree.

This is from the website! Degree is not needed!

To be considered for enrollment in the program, students must have earned a bachelor's or associate's degree AND/OR completed the following program admissions prerequisites:

Liberal Arts and Sciences

Foundations

Language and Communications

Quantitative Literacy

Literature, Arts, and Humanities

Behavioral Science

Nutrition

Anatomy and Physiology

Clinical Microbiology

Total Program: 120 Competency Units (credit equivalents)

Less: any competency units waived through transfer of prior college credits and prerequisites

WGU offers degrees, not classes. As a competency-based online university, progress through your degree program is determined by demonstrating your competence through carefully designed assessments and completion of a professional portfolio, capstone, or both. As a student in this program, you will complete the assessments (courses) listed below in order to graduate. These assessments are required, though you may be able to clear some of these requirements through a course-by-course transcript analysis. (Learn more about transferring credits.) Each assessment has a course of study, which contains a study guide and recommended learning resources for you to use while completing said assessment. Your assigned mentor will help guide you through this process.

For ease of understanding, WGU has assigned competency units to each of its assessments as indicated below. A competency unit is equivalent to a semester credit hour of learning. WGU terms are six months in length. During a typical term, students will be expected to complete at least 12 to 13 competency units. Grades are assigned on a Pass/Not Pass basis; a "Pass" at WGU is equivalent to a letter grade of "B" or better.

Speak to an Enrollment Counselor for more information about these assessments and their courses of study. View the PDF program guide. (Download Adobe Reader to view this file.)
