Anyone considering WGU for MSN in Education should ask about the changes coming to the program. I applied and was accepted to the program about a month ago. I looked through the classes and compared them to other MSN programs... Read More

    That would be a great thing to ask your mentor, but in the past, when they've made curriculum changes, it only applies to people who have upcoming start dates, not people who are already entrenched in the program.

    I'm fighting with myself, trying to get myself to the point to where I can consider going back to school. I've applied to wgu and sent transcripts. Good first steps. Wgu looked great to me, for what *i* need.

    I really wish they'd stop making changes that make them less attractive to me.

    I would think you would be "grandfathered" in. I hope so. Im in the same boat, I'm 1 month into the RN-MSN program. I wish they would get rid of the research classes because I would love advanced assessment and pathophysiology!

    Does anyone know if they are really thinking of adding these classes anytime soon. I would really love to take them. I ask my mentor she said she does not know anything about it.

    I was told the classes would be changed around August. I had an appointment to speak with my enrollment counselor and she had someone else call me. I asked about an update to the changes and he asked me "how did you know about them?" I told him I had asked on my own. He said he had just found out about the changes himself. That was 2 weeks ago. I have heard nothing further. I am waiting to begin until the changes have gone through.

    I think I'm missing the boat here. I, too, would love taking an advanced assessment class and the patho. I'm in the MSN education and have 17 credits left. I'm guessing my program won't change? Hmm. I'm going to have to chat with my mentor. I don't want to prolong my program but I'd like to opt into these courses if possible.

    I was told that if I wanted to start now I could and change over to the new program when it begins. That would mean I could end up taking classes that are being removed. If I don't hear something soon, I will probably go ahead now and change over when the time comes. I don't want to wait much longer to start and I may just take my chances with the classes. Some people may want to start now in order to be grandfathered into the current program. I want the new classes, too.

    Are you doing the complete RN-MSN program, including the BSN? If you are then you most likely won't have finished all those by the time the new program changes come, if they are happening in August. I say go for it then and then switch to the new curriculum when it comes! I was wishing they would let me pilot the new classes...that would be cool. My new term starts August 1st, and I'm hoping to only have the capstone to work on that entire term. Bummer...but if I've got a firm grip on my capstone maybe I'll see what they'll let me do.

    I have my BSN. I am doing the MSN-Ed program. I wish I would have known about WGU when I did my RN-BSN. I would have done it through them.
