  1. Best major before BSN/MSN program?
    I'll echo what everyone else has said -- your previous degree subject doesn't matter a hill of beans, only the GPA and whether or not you've managed to knock out some of those pre-req's with it. ...

  4. MBA in Healthcare Management
    You can't do two concurrent programs at WGU (i.e. both the WGU MSN and the WGU MBA) but my MSN is through my local university. My enrollment advisor sent my request up the chain of command and, while...

  5. MBA in Healthcare Management
    I've been teetering on the fence about getting the MBA-HM along with my FNP. After seeing a couple of APN clinical manager positions posted at my preferred future employer, I've decided to take the...

  6. BSN or CEN?
    Unfortunately, I misread and misunderstood your intentions. All apologies. I would argue, however, that you probably did do some work in preparing for the CEN, albeit perhaps not purposefully. If...

  7. BSN or CEN?
    Let's not fool ourselves here. The BSN is longer, but is not "much more work". More busywork, maybe. More time spent learning about research methods and leadership, maybe. But, not more real work. ...

  8. BSN or CEN?
    The short answer is: it depends. You've already answered your own question, in part. If you're working at -- or looking to transfer to -- a Magnet hospital, you'll need that BSN under your belt....

  9. Is RN to BSN while working full time possible?
    That was with transferring in my ASN. I don't know if WGU has changed their policies on transfer credit, but when I came into the program, the ASN waived the vast majority of GenEd classes. The AASN,...

  10. Is RN-BSN at WGU appropriate for a new nurse?
    You can and definitely should do the WGU BSN now. Don't wait to get any experience, because no experience is necessary for any of the classes. What you don't already know, you will learn. Good luck.

  11. Is RN to BSN while working full time possible?
    WGU's program is designed for full-time RN's. In fact, I've read stories of people being denied entry because they only had a PRN or part-time job, but I'm not sure how often this happens. Like...

  12. Anyone recently gone to WGU?
    Graduated from WGU last May with my BSN, and am now in my second semester of a local university MSN/FNP program. I'll agree with everything posted in this thread thus far. WGU is awesome, and I would...

  13. What is the quickest masters degree?
    As you've discovered, the WGU GPA is an equivalent of 3.0. Your admissions officer said that if you'd had a 3.0, you'd be in (which, by the way, is ridiculous to make that much fuss about 0.8 points,...

  14. WGU BSN Grads: Any problems getting into a FNP program?
    I was accepted to Maryville and University of Memphis, both for FNP/MSN. I also applied to Vanderbilt, but I pulled my application after going to an APRN open house there and hearing the Dean of the...

  15. Has anyone investigated ARNP programs that will accept a BSN from WGU?
    I've read a ton of posts about people who have been accepted to various FNP programs with their WGU BSN. I haven't read a single post about someone being refused entry due to their WGU BSN. ...

  19. Anyone ever been in this situation
    I'm with the others here. I'd LOVE for my program to give me a B for an 83-90. Instead, it's 85-92 is a B, and 93+ is an A. 77-84 is a C, but we can only get two C's in the whole program. I think...
