Welcome, Nurses!

National Nurses Week

Also, during the month of April, WGU is offering a $65 application fee waiver* to nurses applying to a bachelor’s or master’s degree program. Use special affiliate code RN14 on the payment tab of your application to have your application fee waived. Code expires May 15, 2014.
