Tentatively accepted to the RN-BSN through WGU's online program. Lalalalala yay for me! Nervous as hell about going back to school....but its gotta be done! Anyone have any experience with WGU? Negative or positive?... Read More
- 0Dec 30, '12 by NSimmonsI 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.

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.
- 0Feb 28, '13 by RN*mommyQuote from KfwinslowI started the WGU RN-BSN program in August of last year and received my BSN at the end of January. I worked hard and finished 35 credits in under 6 months so it's doable! Depends on how much time you have to put into it. I did take biochem and was nervous like you. For that reason I requested it be my first class. I actually enjoyed it very much and learned a lot! The thinkwell lectures were created for someone like me (short attention span for things that don't interest me). The projects were challenging and fun at the same time. I didn't have statistics so I can't comment on that.Starting WGU on Friday. Super nervous. Mostly about Statistics and Biochemistry. Has anyone her taken either of these who can give me any advice? Also, hoping to finish RN-BSN program by January 20-4. Anyone know if this is feasible?
Congratulations on your choice and good luck on your journey. I think your timeline is completely doable.
- 0Mar 1, '13 by KfwinslowThanks RN*mommy, I appreciate the feedback. I asked my mentor whether or not she thought it was doable, and she basically refused to answer the question. Do you know how long they had it projected for you to finish? They have me projected at 3 terms, taking about 12 CUs each term. I am really hoping to finish as soon as possible. Going to be tough with a husband, two little ones, and a full time job, but I'm hoping I can do it! Thanks again!
