WGU Pre-Licensure TX

by MadelineA MadelineA (New) New Pre-Student

Hello! I am just now starting my prerequisites for the WGU BSN Pre-Licensure program. Has anyone used StraighterLine? What are your thoughts? Did you have any trouble transferring those into WGU?

Also, I am about the same distance from the Dallas and Decatur locations. Does anyone have a recommendation for which one they liked more and why?



I was told by my mom who is a nurse that Decatur hospital was terrible. I am hoping to get into UT Southwestern in Dallas for my clinicals. Not sure if we get to have that option or not?

I've used SL for sociology. There was no issues in tranferring it to WGU. WGU endorses them.

I always like to caution people with SL because many unexpected things can happen. SL credits are not widely accepted... they are only accepted by a relatively small number of colleges. If you take a large number of prereqs there and for some reason need to transfer to a different college.. you may have to end up retaking all of those courses.
