    The CRNA is a masters level program so you do not need a MSN prior to starting it. That would be kind of redundant. Most MSN programs are in education or healthcare management and have nothing to do with being a CRNA

    I am confused on how you never set foot in a hospital for clinicals? The website states that you have required clinical hours with a healthcare partner that is set up by the school. And regardless of where you work you have clinicals for each specialty like OB-GYN and community health or psych, so how did you get around that?

    Most of the posters here are already RNs, and as such no clinical time is required. We work as an RN and that trumps any need for clinical classwork.

    Initial licensure as an RN is a different story...you will indeed have clinicals.

    As Bortaz mentioned, there are no clinicals required for the RN-to-BSN option. Clinicals ARE required for the prelicensure option (which is only available in some states).

    As you go further in your nursing education searches, you'll find that the vast majority of RN-to-BSN programs do not require any clinical, with the exception of community health and/or leadership clinicals.

    Greetings. I have just been admitted to WGU and will be starting on December 1st. I also have 35 CU's to complete. I know you're busy, but I would greatly appreciate any and all advice/tips you could give me about the program. I would love to compete this in six months! If you can do it I can do it!

    congrats on starting WGU!! Join us on the facebook page if you can "WGU RN to BSN Discussion Group".

    As for tips, those are dependent on your classes, but with 35CU it would be possible to complete in one term IF you have the time to spare. Just make sure you get community health theory (SZT1) out of the way ASAP so you can start your practicum as early as possible. I was done with that class two months in, so four months were available to get the practicum done (only took one month or so, but you need the time just in case).

    I just got my transcript eval done. Where can I find a complete list of all the CUs I need to do? Is it under our student portal? I'm starting in December (hopefully) as well!

    That was in the email with my transcript eval.

    It just showed all the pre-reqs that transferred in, not the required courses for graduation that I still needed to complete. I just took the courses for the BSN and crossed out the "MET" classes from my transcript eval. Thanks.

    The $3,300: Do they give you the option to pay that in increments?

    I paid mine at once, but I do remember being told that there was a split payment option.
