    I am starting my prerequisits for nursing at GSU. I already have a bachelor's degree from over 10 years ago as well as a recent MBA with 10 years of work experience in finance. However, I have 3.3 undergraduate GPA from many years ago with some poor science grades my freshman year which was way back in 1997. I am confident that I can get mostly As on my prerequisits so I am curious as to how GSU calculates their "program" GPA because the figures of accepted applicants seem pretty high at 3.8 so it makes me think that they typically count the core B, C and E and then mainly the prerequisits listed on the website for the ACE program. Just curious. Thanks in advance.

    Anyone know if one already has a BS and Master's in non-nursing area's, do the credits transfer? I would hope all the General Ed and Statistics, etc., would transfer. I finish my ADN this year but have many many years in healthcare.

    Yes, necessary prereqs, such as Statistics and various other general ed courses would transfer if you've already taken them elsewhere. The only classes that would absolutely NOT transfer, regardless, are the 7 core nursing courses of the program.

    I have combed through this thread and have not found the answer to this question:

    Has anyone who graduated from WGU with a BSN ever transferred to a traditional college with the expectation to complete a MSN?

    I would really like to know the answer to this question. I want to eventually get my masters. I know I can keep going to WGU to get a masters, but I don't want to get an online masters degree.

    In another thread, someone said they were accepted into a few different CRNA programs after obtaining their BSN through WGU.

    I know several people who have been accepted into MSN programs elsewhere after getting their BSN through WGU. A lot depends on what type of MSN program you're interested in, and what their prerequisites are, and how competitive they are. WGU's pass/fail grading system means that their transcripts will translate to a 3.0 GPA, which might be more difficult for a highly competitive MSN program.

    I'd really like to hear if anyone has gotten into a NP Master's program with a WGU BSN?
