- Aug 9, '12 by kloneQuote from DReinerMBAYes, 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.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.

- Aug 11, '12 by lenadeeHey did u decide where to go?? Which did u find better?
- Dec 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.
- Dec 30, '12 by kloneIn 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.
- Jan 11 by alotusforyouI'd really like to hear if anyone has gotten into a NP Master's program with a WGU BSN?
- Jan 19 by skochrnI received my ADN at a local community college, finished my BSN with WGU last year & have been accepted & will start IWU's APRN program in April.
- Feb 27 by KfwinslowStarting 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?
- Feb 28 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?

Congratulations on your choice and good luck on your journey. I think your timeline is completely doable.
