    I'm interested in this answer, too. Because I have an AAS degree, everything didn't transfer - they went through class by class. I need to take chemistry and nutrition, as well as a liberal arts class, geh.

    I'm very disappointed - my goal was to finish the BSN in one term, now it looks like it will be two.

    purpledrop, I have completed 3 classes (I start on 5/1/11). I have 5 more to go. The community health course it kicking my butt!!! I can usually finish a task in 2-3 days. I am on day 4 now trying to work on the first task and all i got is a bunch of notes right now. THis course is a little tougher... then it also has a clinical portion. APA paper, but i'll have to do some leg work to get info in my community. It's the pracitum of this course. The course of study is even difficult. I just can tell.... this is not my speicality; kinda of boring to me. But bless the nurses that love it! We all got our place!
    Oh, and no i took statistics at my local college like 5 years ago. barely passed it, but I accepted my "C" with a smile!!!!!

    Hi Lisa 1980! So you only need to do 5 more classes to get BSN from WGU?! Congrats!
    Would you suggest I take Statistics at my local college (I registered for this summer, it'll cost me 1.5 months of classes-3 times a week plus $525 from my pocket, or it is better to apply to WGU, pay for 6 months 3500 and take Statistics, Chemistry with nursing there? Thank you I really appriciate it

    Yes, I will take them through WGU.

    I haven't had too many liberal arts classes under my belt - a psych 101, a world religions class, a couple communications classes and I think that's about it. Both of those were counted as prereqs already, and WGU doesn't allow you to use a class more than once.

    So you have to do clinicals for the WGU program? I didn't think there were any clinicals at all. That's one of the many things that made it so appealing to me. You're doing an awesome job though! Three classes down already, wow!

    designer-mommy, it's not really a clinical they call it a pracitum. Basically, i have to search info maybe interview a couple people. I have to get the project approved by the course mentor then I write a APA style report on my findings. That is the clinical! No one looking over your shoulder or anything like that.

    purpledrop, not sure about chemistry. if you can afford it sure do it with WGU. Overall i disliked statistics no matter where I would of took it!!! : )
