I'm a new grad RN, and recognize I need to go back for my BSN asap. I would just like to know, specifically, how employers
view a degree from this institution. Does it seem to matter? not matter? I already know that WGU is in fact accredited. I specifically would like to know if anyone has had any problems with a potential employer accepting a BSN from WGU. It is a tough market out there for new grads, at least in my state. I have a good resume but I seem to keep getting angled out of the competition simply because I don't have the BSN, and the hospitals always seem to "prefer" the BSN prepared nurse. Could someone please, kindly share their experience with me regarding this? It's coming down to either WGU or a more expensive, but well-established state university. I'd rather not have to lay down a load of cash since I already spent many thousands on a non-nursing Bachelor's earned previously. thanks to anyone with input. feel free to PM if you prefer that.
