    I currently know about a dozen WGU BSN grads that are now working as nurses. About 5 of them were working at the hospital that they are at now, but as transporters, logisitics techs, scrub techs and lab assistants. The other half received employment but were never in the medical field prior to their BSN degree. So, I think its well worth it, for the price and time, you cant beat it. My wife and I are soon to be WGU BSN students! Good luck and I know you will get what you are looking for!

    Sometimes I forget this isn't Facebook and become upset when I can't "like" someone's post. Haha. Just want to congratulate you and your wife on your accomplishments! It's awesome you went for your degrees together!

    I too was leary on the WGU program, but then I started talking to some new grads and the 5 I write about are at the hospital I work at. I then started to get pumped and felt confident about their program. I cant wait, 2 more semesters then I will be making the phone call. Cheers!!!

    I work at a highly ranked Children's Hospital and WGU is one of their recommended schools through our Education Portal. It has both regional and national accreditation, so it seems like that would speak for itself. I am also interested in and researching WGU.

    HappyBee, sorry to see you got a rude reply. I thought it was a good question, thank you for asking. Some people still don't get it. I have considered taking the BSN through an CSU but picked WGU instead for many reasons, I heard the negative comments about WGU from nurse mangers and fellow nurses. I came to the conclusion that these nurses simply aren't educated about WGU. I did a clinical rotation at PIH, and almost every nurse I came across said they are completing or will complete their BSN with WGU. I'm looking to start BSN-RN May 1st. Good luck with your choosing. 

    Thank you! I appreciate your response.
    That is very true! They are not educated about WGU. WGU is fully accredited so what is so negative about it? I hope to apply soon! Good luck with your future endeavors!
