    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!

    I would not assume it doesn't include a lab. I know they're planning on adding health assessment to their MSN program, starting with August enrollment.

    Oh, do you mean that it will have a lab ? That would be fantastic!

    Starting June 1 and am still waiting to hear about my transcripts and experience. Nurse since 1985 with tons of managerial experience as well as ICU, ER and acute care experience. I am hoping they think I should consider pursuing my MSN along with my BSN. I had to for profit college sharks pursuing me, but stuck with WGU d/t their great reputation, reasonable tuition and their willingness to acknowledge previous job experience.

    I am almost done with DOV1. I'm in the RN-to-BSN program. I agree with you...this seems more like a Master's level course. I'm concerned with the outside vendor assessment. How was it? Was it as thorough as the complete head-to-toe assessment in the e-text (rectal/vaginal exam)?
