    Congrats! That is so exciting and encouraging to hear. WGU is at the top of my list to apply for the BSN Prelicensure program. I am also considering WGU for masters in a couple of years :?

    My Capstone project is based on my work setting. It is much easier to do a project based on experience. I am doing a qualitative study. It is doable. It didn't take me too long to reach this far. I started October 1, 2011 with only a ADN degree. I got my BSN through WGU while pursuing my MSN. I am almost done. Thank God!

    To maryCarny,
    You are an inspiration. I have been an ADN nurse for 20+ years & have had some resentment toward the idea of pretty much "having to" return to school to maintain job security. I am working in a teaching hospital & wish they would offer a significant discount to their employees furthering their education, but since that is not the case- I have been shopping for the right program for me. I think I have settled on WGU. I appreciate the information you have shared here, as well as your enthusiasm.

    I have been reading all your postings and I am glad that I am already scheduled to start my MSN (Education) in January 2013. From what I hear, WGU is ok. Is anyone starting the MSN (Education) in January 2013? I would love to have a study pal. Please let me know.

    What does the oral defense entail, and is it required for the BSN also? Thank you in advance.
