Starting WGU RN to BSN program August 1st - Page 10Register Today!
- Nov 12, '12 by goodstudentnowRNYes, WGU is really good. I started October 1, 2011 and now doing my last two courses; Capstone ans Oral. I went from ADN to MSN. I got my BSN when I was done with the BSN courses which was seven at the time. I wish you all the best. It is doable.
- Nov 15, '12 by confuzhnIs the BSN degree awarded to you if you finish the ADN/BSN program early, like some here finished it in 2 or 4 months... or do you have to wait till the end of the term?
Do they require RN work experience before applying for the MSN program?
- Nov 17, '12 by goodstudentnowRNYes. It is awarded at the end of the Semester.

I spoke to my mentor today and she said to start getting ideas for the Community Health Practicum since we live in California, a regulated state. Have you given any thought to this yet? PM me with your email so we can talk privately.
- Dec 23, '12 by miteacherHas anyone experienced problems with the degree being accepted by other colleges for a MSN program? I am interested in the RN to BSN program, and am wondering on average how long it took everyone to complete. I plan on working as a nurse in Michigan, so I am wondering if this program is approved by the board of nursing there...Thanks
- Dec 24, '12 by kloneAFAIK, it's approved by all boards of nursing - it has all accreditation necessary. It seems, on average, people seem to be able to finish in about 2 semesters (each semester is 6 months), although quite a few people finish in one semester. I finished in 3, although I could have finished in 2 if I had been a little more motivated.
- Jan 8 by WhitneyLizRNSo I am currently in the enrollment process for my RN to BSN! I have an AS in Nursing. Can anyone tell me what prereqs they had to take since "the change". Also, how long is it taking you to complete this prereqs!?

How long does it take for them to review your transcripts?So I am currently in the enrollment process for my RN to BSN! I have an AS in Nursing.

- Feb 3 by jessraeI have a question about WGU. I'm enrolled and almost done with my BSN, but I'm asking to take a class that isn't in my curriculum. I've completed 25 units so far and can't start the practicum until the beginning of my second term (March 1), so I wanted to add this physical assessment course to take it in February. My mentor said this isn't possible, but I don't see anything in the handbook that states I cannot take additional, non-required classes at WGU. Has anyone tried to do this?
Kind of a weird question, maybe, but the MSN program I want to apply to requires a 3 unit course in Physical Assessment, and I thought it would be easiest to take it at a college I'm already going to.
