  2. Anatomy/Physiology and Micro
    I did them in the RN to BSN program. I didn't have to do anatomy, but I did do Physiology and Micro. Micro was easy peasy (the test) - I have never heard anyone complain about it here or on facebook....

  3. Has anyone taken Biochem at WGU?
    I did biochem in a week. It is NOT difficult, although that is just my opinion. The 20 day plan is what I used, but now they also have the cohorts - seems I hear more complaints now that they have...

  4. has anyone done the WGU online RN to BSN program?
    WGU has no time restrictions on anything except statistics. There may be classes you have to take over (nutrition is one pretty much everyone has to take no matter what), but they accepted most of my...

  6. WGU Pre-licensing BSN for 2015
    I think it's because there are a LOT of RN to BSN students, but the pre-licensure program is limited to select small groups in certain areas. They do have a facebook group, I believe.

  7. I think I might have blown a vein?
    Even if you did it 100% right, the vein can still blow! Stuff happens - you sound like you are very motivated to learn and you'll do fine. No worries. :)

  8. What is your course plan?
    I second this. Wrote everything with PERRLA as does my hubby (who is in the IT program) and it made it so easy - I haven't written a paper in umm.. 25 years.. :) and was never dinged on APA.

  9. Reasonable RN Pay in Pediatrician's Office
    I work in a clinic now and our LPN's make in that range, actually I think they make more. Ambulatory care can be and often is just as much work as an inpatient position, believe it or not. You do...

  10. TESC and WGU Rn to BSN- prerequisites
    You will have to redo anatomy and microbiology @WGU if you tested out via excelsior. That said, they are easy and if you just did them you'll find you can just re-do them quickly. WGU is competency...

  11. Did you attend your RN-BSN graduation?
    I didn't go, but I bought the tassel and watched it live via streaming just to be 'there'. Good enough for me. :)

    /Agree. First time passer here, no workshop beforehand either. Didn't fail a single PCS or station and did the whole program in 6 months. This is before the FCCA and other added courses, back in the...

  15. Excelsior Graduates please help
    I'm an excelsior grad and I went to WGU. Loved it. They WILL make you retake any sciences that you tested out of without a lab, but it's really very painless. I did physiology over a weekend, the lab...

  16. Opinion regarding WGU
    COS = course of study (the textbook, webinars, whatever) OA = objective assessment (final test) PA = performance assessment (final project) OR preassessment (pre-test for those classes with tests)...

  17. Can this be completed in 1 semester (6months)?
    OCD is the way to be. Skip the COS for any class in which you don't feel you need it, go right to the tasks or tests as quickly as you can. WGU is very self paced so most of it is up to you. Going...

  18. Which RN-BSN programs can be finished in 1 year?
    If speed is your issue, WGU is pretty much it. I did mine in 3.5 months with 50 credits to do. Cost about $3400. Can't beat that. No guarantee that you can finish that quickly, but under a year is...

    Sure, depends on you. I did all those plus four or five more and finished in under four months.

  20. Opinion regarding WGU
    I finished in less than 120 days with 50 CU.. it's 'at your own pace', so you can go as fast or as slowly as you need to. However, to do this you need to pretty much be OCD about school stuff every...

  21. WGU Sept 2014..Anyone??
    The AMNH posts are not mandatory no matter what the communities or mentor say. All you need for that class is to pass the test and to get the AMNH certificate for your portfolio.

    Check your "other" folder - apparently the mods are sending out requests to verify your wgu email and start date.

  23. Will WGU accept Excelsior's A&P/Micro (non-lab) for the RN-BSN?
    Nope! We have lots of people who end up taking them - there's also math, history, arts, etc, for those who need to fill in the gaps. No worries. The anatomy lab comes with a cool big plastic skeleton...

  24. Will WGU accept Excelsior's A&P/Micro (non-lab) for the RN-BSN?
    They will not take them. I did my Micro and A&P through excelsior (although I had another anatomy class that DID count) - I had to retake physiology and micro with labs @ WGU. They are NOT...

    I worked full time - M-F, 9-5. My experience is not typical, although we have had several recent peeps over on the facebook page graduating in one term. YMMV on biochem - I thought it was easy and...
