  1. 40 credits in a year, can I do it?
    I did several classes at a time, but that's just me. I probably didn't need to do that. I would work on a 'test' class before work and write papers in the evening. 37 credits would be definitely...

  2. Nursing BSN at WGU
    My experience is not typical- I did nothing but school and work and got done in a little over three months. From anecdotal evidence only (from here and facebook), my guess is most people finish...

  3. Nursing BSN at WGU
    I went to excelsior for ASN and WGU for BSN. They are very similar but WGU is much cheaper. NO HIDDEN COSTS.. no giant graduation cost like excelsior (when you graduate, you get a diploma and two...

  4. Western governors u
    Egads yes, group projects make me run screaming. I have to do one for my MBA and from what I hear it's a beast. At least it's at the end of the program. I doubt I would have gotten a BSN at all in a...

  8. Finished my MBA-HM last week. Ask me anything!
    I am over halfway through the MBA - HM now. Murse901, how did you find Capsim? Seems intimidating to me from what I have seen so far (still several classes to go before I get there).

  9. Do any WGU graduates have jobs?
    I work at a federal institution and they have no issue with WGU degrees - mine was accepted with no comment at all. Quite a few RN to BSN degrees are online now.

  10. Taskstream stalking! What's the longest you've had an assignment "being evaluated"?
    I had a really weird one the other day. Turned in a paper, was maybe 100 or so in the queue and had it returned in about three hours for a really tiny problem (one sentence!). Don't you just hate...

  11. Bsn at western governors
    FWIW I did the whole program in three months and I used no outside study guides. So they aren't necessary unless that's what you want to do. As for the advanced degrees, many many many people...

  12. Discovered something interesting about WGU
    I thought about them as well, based on the comments on another forum. I can't remember why I decided to stick with WGU, would have to look back and see. Either way, sounds like a good plan. ::)

  13. Discovered something interesting about WGU
    I'm in the MBA program now so if you need any insights let me know - it's been a changed format for about the last six months. And yep, no need to pay again. Now that the MBA program has OA's...

  15. What do you do if none of the times your mentor...
    My mentor calls are always in the evening, around 6PM my time - both with my BSN and now with my MBA. I'd get a mentor that can work with you on that. :)

  16. Finished my MBA-HM last week. Ask me anything!
    Yes, I am. I didn't get an MSN at WGU, however (just a BSN). *IF* I get an MSN, I may get it somewhere else.. However, I am not overly concerned with academic incest as I am doing these degrees more...

  17. Finished my MBA-HM last week. Ask me anything!
    I'm almost done with four classes and I'm less than a month in. I expect to be done within one term (6 months) if life doesn't get in the way. I do spend a LOT of time on coursework, probably at...

  18. Online schools accepting Excelsior credits
    WGU does not acccept micro or A/P from Excelsior. However, it is competency based, meaning as long as you show competency you can get through it quickly. It took me about one week to do micro and...

  19. Considering WGU: Questions about Practicum
    I had the same problem when I was considering an MSN and was told a BSN or other 'stakeholder' (MD, etc) could be used, however I don't know for SURE that it would be acceptable. I ended up in the...

  20. telephone triage flowsheet for receptionist?
    Agree. We don't allow receptionists to do any triage at all - all 'sick calls' go to the RN.

  22. I completed my BSN today. Feel free to ask any questions
    It's pretty individual. Several people have finished the MSN in one term recently, but two terms is more realistic for most people. It would still probably be the least expensive MSN around, tho. :)
