    Hi RN*mommy!
    Yes, the three "U" classes and their corresponding "labs" that I need are being tweaked but I don't know how yet! My mentor said that they (the mentors) were told NOT to enroll anyone into those classes until further notice. They are: UBC2/UBP2(Evidence Based practice), UDC2/UDP2(Adv Prof Roles&values), UCC2/UCP2(Adv info mgment and app of Tech). In the meantime, I have to finish Stats, Biochem, Comm and Pop Health and the Practicum so plenty to keep me busy for now. Hope to be done in August. Then on to the MSN portion of my program.

    Hi travelovingnurse - I also started 3/1 and am very happy with WGU so far. I had also worked through most of the Informatics course before my mentor suggested I work on Health Assessment while they fixed Informatics. That part was a bit frustrating, but WGU IS responding to the students and trying to make the test better (and they're doing it very quickly.)

    So far, I'm pretty happy I've chosen WGU!

    How are you all taking the classes that you want? My mentor says that I have to do it in a certain order, starting with Health Assessment, as in I had no option? I feel like Im missing something lol! I started on a prereq of Humanities about 30% of the way and she told me I had to take Health Assessment. Other than that, I love it!

    Hey skoolrn, and whovever else started in Feb/March/April 2013, can we get an update on your progress at this point? I am looking at WGU as one of several options, and I may try to start in June. I am enjoying hearing success stories and feedback from the people who are doing the BSN program right now, especially those who are advancing rapidly. I would really love to be able to start in June and finish in 6-7 months. Thanks everybody!

    Do you have several classes open in your COS? If so, you can work on any of them, at any time.

    I am taking Applied Statistics now and have struggled with it. Its all concepts, no math. If I pass my final on Saturday I will have completed a term (12 credits) in about 6 weeks. My advice to people is if you can take stats elsewhere and transfer it in DO IT. I think this course is difficult and I have had stats before, in the 1980's. My next class is Community and Population Health, yay, nursing!

    Sorry, I am taking also right now before enrollment date with WGU I was so afraid I wouldn't pass it. How is it concepts without math?

    The focus is statistical theory.... There are no math problems to do. The theory is hard for me.

    Hi everyone! I was looking at the bsn program at wgu for 3mos ,was able to speak to an advisor, submit my transcripts and all but ended up cancelling last minute it because i found out that the highest grade can give you is a 3.0 (pass/fail classes)

    Hi Everyone,

    I want to go to WGU. Most of the FNP programs I am looking at here in Los Angeles require a minimum of 3.0 GPA, however, the also require a health assessment class with lab. WGU is online and doesn't have a lab time I'm assuming. I would lik eto know if anyone know how this transfer over who has gone to the school. Also, anyone with information on schools in Los Angeles that offer a health assessment class with a lab?Thanks!
