  2. When is the transcript updated to reflect BSN completion?
    CONGRATS in advance. My transcript was updated on the date of degree conferral. So if you pass your class, the mentor sends you an application for graduation, then it's a day or two before it's...

  3. What have you lived through? (Let's reminisce)

  4. PC or Mac for WGU
    I use a PC and a chromebook - but I have seen others on the facebook page successfully using macbooks, so I assume they would work fine. I do see that the proctored testing is supposed to support...

  6. RN to MSN 2014-2015.. New starts as well as students currently enrolled
    If going RN to MSN also join the WGU RN to BSN discussion group. It's more active than the MSN groups and will get you through the BSN portion.

  7. has anyone done the WGU online RN to BSN program?
    I'd take them at WGU - but if you decide not to, WGU probably won't accept biochem or nutrition done elsewhere so do the others. :) Some of those classes have tests (so it would be similar to a...

  8. Know any reputable RN to BSN Online that can be completed in a little less than 12 mos?
    I needed a ton of gen-ed (50 units to do, total) at WGU and still managed it in less than a term (3.5 months, actually). So a really motivated person with a lot of gen-ed could easily finish under a...

  9. 3 Credits to go! Let the TaskStream stalking begin!
    Portfolio won't take you long - don't overthink, just wax poetic about how awesome you are and how relevant your classes were. :) I can't see myself presenting my papers to a future employer, but I...

  10. Best Online Programs under $25k
    I worked full time days (9-5, M-F) and did WGU in under four months. YMMV, but you aren't going to find a cheaper school if that's your main concern. My degree was $3400 or so. Obviously not...

  12. Practice tests for ANCC certification exams
    I recently took a different ANCC certification exam (ambulatory care), so this may not apply - but I found all the books you could buy on amazon were very irrelevant to the actual test (and too...

  13. 3 Credits to go! Let the TaskStream stalking begin!
    I thought about ENMU (and still may when done with my MBA @ WGU), but they are still in the pending stage for nursing (ACEN) accreditation for the MSN program per their website. Hopefully that would...

  14. To tell or not to tell?
    I don't say anything at all, but I guarantee they'll guess if I'm in a hospital or talking with a provider for more than five minutes. The speech will just give it away (as will checking out your IV...

  15. If you can't pass the NCLEX after three attempts....LVN license only!
    The LPN/LVN thing is just silly - as already discussed, LPN/LVN requires a board exam too and there's no guarantee the RN candidate could even pass that. (and yes, I was an LPN many years ago). ...

  16. Paying student loans
    I'm aware of that. I'm not planning on applying for high end jobs - it's more of a personal goal, and IF I apply for a job using my MBA it's unlikely that in upstate rural NY I'd be competing against...

  17. April 2015 Facebook group
    There are already several very active WGU facebook groups - you'll need your wgu email address to apply to get admitted to most of them. The RN to BSN discussion group is the most active, but the MSN...

  18. Wester Governors U -Statistics and Microbiology
    I think micro is one of the easiest WGU classes - never have heard anyone at all complaining about it. The lab isn't bad - if your cultures don't grow, say so and say what they SHOULD have looked...

  19. If grad school was paid for, but not for nursing
    I'm doing an MBA in Healthcare admin, starting in March. I don't see anything interesting in the future for me (also in my 40's) that I'd use an MSN for - at least an MBA might help me in unrelated...

  20. WGU for BSN then where for NP?
    We do have plenty of graduates over on the facebook page that have gotten into NP programs with a WGU degree - even with a 3.0GPA. So it can be done! :) The NP programs here in NY all require...

  21. New way to give shots
    We were also taught VG 25 years ago. So no, not new. :P As for aspiration, newer guidelines seem to be that aspiration is no longer required for most injections.

  22. Educational fork in the road; advice, please.
    I'm doing a healthcare MBA - I *may* do an MSN later, but all the MSN types I know tell me to get an MBA. :P Plus, the subject material interests me more. I think a dual MSN/MBA would be the way to...

  23. Triaging Walk-in patients

  24. Wester Governors U -Statistics and Microbiology
    /agree. I tested out of micro when in Excelsior and I had to retake at WGU because it MUST have a lab component. It took me a week to re-do - so would not have saved me time or money to have done it...

  25. Straighter line
    Also, I am surprised that an enrollment counselor suggested it, as WGU will not accept more classes after your start date. And if you finished classes now before you start, you'd have to have a...
