    and here's what I have done/learned. I have finished THREE classes and have 9 competency units/credits in 3 weeks! If you have prior experience/knowledge you can fly through. Some classes have "outside vendor" components to the WGU course and they aren't always compatible with whatever computer OS or browser you have. For example, my statistics lab doesn't work on my mac but does on my PC. You need to be aware of this!! Luckily I have 2 laptops and can switch when I need to. MY mentor is awesome!! You really want someone to whine to. The course mentors are awesome!! They know the course material and can answer questions. I recently finished the course called Health Assessment and the assessment for this course is the NLN Health assessment test. I've been a nurse for 22 yrs and have a BS in biology. This is a tough class. There was info in that course that I feel was geared for a nurse practitioner, things I was never taught, never heard of, and would never do in nursing practice unless I were a NP. So this course as a BSN level course is going to be very hard for nurses with an ADN and little experience. I relayed this to my mentor and said that WGU could contact me and I would happily give examples. My next course is statistics, then community and population health. I should finish the BSN component and receive my BSN in less then 6 months. Then onto the MSN courses. Feel free to ask questions if you are on the fence about WGU!
    Omg, you finished 3 classes in 3 weeks?

    The future of nursing looks very grim, folks. Where are the standards?

    Heh, if you think that's bad don't ask me how many classes I finished in 14 weeks. =) WGU is competency based, so it can be very quick if you know or can learn the material. Most people do NOT graduate in 14 weeks - the average appears to be 10-18 months.

    Stars19 - this is an old thread.. which community health class are you speaking of? MSN or BSN? Class code? Most WGU 'extra stuff' (concept maps, etc) would be optional if needed to learn the material. Classes that have tests with them have a pre and a post test.

    They don't grant competency based FNP-MSN degrees do they?

    Once that happens this profession is clearly a joke.
