ADN @ Excelsior to enrollment in WGU questions

  1. What is your recent experience with transferring from EC to WGU RN-BSN?

    I have an ASN/ADN from EC and I am waiting on transcripts to get to WGU. Is it still true that if you have an ASN that you get the lower level courses waived (Micro/A &P)? My A&P has lab credit because I took them thru a CC but my Micro was an EC exam. I know if you have an AAS you have to take a few extra courses, just curious about the ASN.

    I would guess that if your micro didn't have a lab component, then they will make you retake it.

    Graduated for Excelsior last year and start April 1st RN-BSN. Yes Micro and A&P both have to have lab-mine did and both transferred, the only thing I need is Biochem, Statistics and US History(strange) and their Nursing Courses. Start in a few weeks-ready to get going and get done!!

    Yes, it looks like they're requiring History now with their January curriculum changes.

    I did take a Statistics course thru Straighterline so I hope I can bypass that one, statistics scares the crap out of me. My Micro was the EC exam so I guess I can suck it up and redo it. I doubt if I start before June/July. I'm working like crazy right now. Thanks for the input!

    How was statistics class with straighterline?

    Statistics was awful for me, hated every minute of it much like algebra. I took Business Stats. But in comparison to taking a butt in the seat or self study course, I guess I had it easy.

    I am fighting WGU right now. They are as of 2013 NOT excelsior friendly. They accepted my micro and AP in 2012 but I was unable to start d/t them losing my transcripts for MONTHS (grrrr.) So they did another transcript eval in 2013 and my micro was not accepted but my AP was. I figured, ok well that sucks but I will appeal micro. I lost the micro appeal and found out the start of college that them accepting my AP was "a computer error!" So I was ****** of course! BTW your "two" science classes of micro and AP end up being 5 classes with labs included. Pretty crazy stuff. Debating whether to ask for my money back or not....

    I did Microbiology and A&P through Excelsior, both without labs. I am in my first term at WGU and I am having to retake Microbiology with Lab completely, and I have to take Physiology and A&P Lab. There are normally two A&P courses at WGU, but I am only having to take one of them in order to also take the lab. They said that the lab portions could not be taken independently, so I have to retake Micro completely, since it is only one class with the lab, and have to take one A&P class in order to take the lab. So, overall, I saved one A&P class. Not thrilled about it, but I always knew this might happen after doing my RN through Excelsior (considering Excelsior does not have labs attached to those classes).

    Same here. They accepted my anatomy (with lab) to cover the first anatomy class, but I have to retake physiology, micro, and labs for both. Ah well.
