    What are the 15 classes? And what had you taken already? I just finished WGU and I had a ton of classes to take, but they went very quickly..

    a previous poster said Nutrition and Biochem are required to be taken at WGU. Is this true? I did Nutrition with my ADN....they wouldn't make you re-take it would they?

    I am not sure, but I think they do require nutrition as part of the 'core' courses, although I have heard of a few getting out of it.. and biochem has been waived for a few.. But honestly, if you know the material, just test out quickly. I did nutrition and biochem each in less than a week, so those two classes really don't add much to the time spent. I had to retake micro (one week), physiology (3 days) and sociology ( four days). So if you have taken it, should not be a problem to just accelerate out.

    Nutrition has to be less than 5 years old and to get out of taking Biochem, you have to have had a class called "Biochemistry" on your transcript. Other chemistries don't count. Hope that helps!

    I just don't see the point of retaking a class, honestly. I took Soc, Nutrition, micro, health assessment.... All this stuff already. This is bringing me down and really lowering my opinion. I will be speaking to my enrollment counselor tomorrow-hopefully she will tell me classes and hopefully it will be good news.

    PS- what do you mean by accelerate out? Thanks

    If you know the material, you just write the paper or take the final exam. So it should not take you long to do those classes if you have had them already. That's how you 'accelerate out'. But it's up to you - curriculums do change the longer you wait. I don't really like the new MSN curriculum at WGU so I myself am not taking that one just yet.
