WGU Prelicensure Dallas, Texas

Posted

Hi All,

I wanted to get everyone's opinion and I'm just curious to know what my chances are of being accepted into WGU Texas Pre-Licensure program. My application is complete according to my enrollment counselor. I am just waiting for after November 1st to be notified if I got into the pre-licensure program. I understand that I would have to apply to the clinical portion while completing the pre-licensure part. I currently have a 3.53 GPA, working to improve that and my TEAS adjusted score was 82.7% on the first try. I'm just worried that I'm not as competitive as others to get accepted. I have been rejected by other schools. I have also taken the HESI A2 exam with a 85.43% on the first try.

Has anyone else been accepted to WGU's Pre-Licensure program? If so, what was your overall GPA and TEAS V Score? I just want to know if I even have a chance of being accepted. If you are in the program now, what is the program like? How are the clinicals, and where are you doing them?

I got accepted to the Houston cohort 11/1 and my GPA is a 2.6 and I have an 86.7% TEAS. They look at your overall package. I've been in the medical field for 6 years as well. Think positive and good luck!

I am waiting for the Dallas cohort to close on Nov. 1st and 2 weeks after that to hear if I have been accepted or not. Hopefully I am. Let's stay in contact so we can guide each other along the journey.

Sure. Let me know when you get in. I'm trying to post more because theses helped me in my decision and perhaps it'll help someone else.

Thanks SmartLexus,

I am hoping to receive notice within the next 2 weeks. I'm trying to post more also to help others get an idea of nursing school application process.

By any chance, would you know any tips on how to get a job as an ER Tech?

No. I'm a unit coordinator in Houston and I got this job because of someone at my church 6 years ago. Do you have your bls?

hi there im waiting as well just talked to my enrollment advisor. I got a 3.43 GPA Scored low on the TEAS 61.5% :( but Ive been in the medical field since 2003. Also I hold a BS degree in Human Biology I wish they would take the HESI i got a 81% on that. I ran out of time on the Math and reading section on the TEAS.

Did you get accepted DFWRNSTUDENT? I got my call yesterday that I was accepted.

I just wanted to update everyone and say that I have received the anticipated phone call from my enrollment counselor yesterday and I'VE BEEN ACCEPTED INTO THE PRE-NURSING PROGRAM AT WGU TEXAS! I'm very excited and nervous at the same time. I will keep everyone updated about the process and my progress.

Congratulations, so did I. We should keep in touch and help each other out. I have my intake interview next week.

Thank you mistyp88,

Congrats to you too on your acceptance. I have already had my intake interview with my enrollment counselor and spoke to the admissions coordinator regarding my application status. I'm good to go once they bill my tuition. I'm just waiting on my orientation to be available in mid-december. Let me know how your phone call goes.

I have my intake interview on Thursday and my admissions call on tomorrow. What do they ask you for your intake interview. I already have my FAFSA completed with all the other things done that go with it. Where is orientation and when? I am sure I will find out Thursday, but I am just excited and anxious.

Mistyp88,

During the intake interview, your enrollment counselor is going to go through your next steps which can include financial aid and any other missing items. I didn't have anything missing and I've been cleared by admissions to begin orientation in mid-december. Orientation is done online in the student portal. I was fortunate enough to obtain a scholarship that covered my WGU tuition for nursing school.

To everyone who is currently in the Pre-Licensure program at WGU Texas and Dallas cohorts, how is everything going so far for you? How was the pre-nursing semester like? (Having to take biochemistry and everything else) How are the actual nurses courses, skills, and clinicals?

*I would like as much detail as possible to help better prepare myself for the long hard road ahead of me. Thank you everyone for your support and advice; I greatly appreciate it and I'm sure others do as well.

That is awesome that you got a scholarship. I wish I had one. So the intake interview is not bad? Good.

Mistyp88, thank you. The intake interview for me went well because my enrollment counselor and I had similar conversations leading up to it so we just brushed over topics we went over in the past.

*Great and constant communication with your enrollment counselor is key. My counselor had been rooting for me since I began talking to her about my interests in becoming an RN.

Sounds just like mine. We have talked for about a year now and was on every 2 week calls regarding my application. Who did you have? Mine is Ani and she is awesome.
