Does anyone know the changes that are being made to the courses starting 1/1/13? I've been told there won't be any course additions, but there will be changes made to the courses themselves.... Read More

    I wonder what the leadership experience requirement will entail??? Glad they got a specified health assessment course. I think the history classes will be interesting, but then again, I've always liked history.

    My transcript was evaluated on 11/30/12. The eval states that it will be good for (only) 30 days from the date of the eval.

    Hmmm..transcripts only good for 30 days? Goodness, that is a very different time frame than I was given. Mine were last evaluated in July, so maybe this has changed as well.

    As long as you are an RN, you should be accepted. You may have some more prereqs to take, compared to someone with an ADN. Not sure.

    Yes, I received my BSN at the end of December, and I will be starting the MSN (Leadership) in August. I needed some down time! Although, after three weeks off, I'm starting to get bored, and I'm thinking of moving up my start date to June (don't start in July if you can help it, because it means an end of the term right during the holiday season - I learned this from experience).

    I"ll probably need many courses before I can start on the nursing portion. Can I take the pre-reqs through WGU? I' m not sure how to go about this, it's been 15 yrs since I was in nursing school.. I want to achieve this goal! Not sure I can do it

    I would advise you to take the prerequisites at a community college then you can go on to WGU. Since you have been out of the classroom for such a long time, it can be difficult for you to adjust to online classes.

    On the other hand, you will be paying the same tuition per semester, regardless of how many classes you have. My personal recommendation is to do them through WGU. Assuming you're adept at the computer, it shouldn't be too hard to get the hang of it.
