    Hi teacherturnedRN, Thanks for letting me know that you're in the same situation as me! I'm sorry you have to take the pre-reqs too. And, I paid also (hope I'm not kicking myself later), and have been trying to start the EWB since Friday. I can't get anything updated on my account, so I shot an email to my EC. Good luck to you too!! BTW, how was the EWB? I've read it can be done in a few days.

    Hi RNRules - I'm trying to get a headstart on some of my pre-req's (eg. algebra, statistics) by using the free Khan Academy website (not affiliated with WGU, but quite well-regarded and well-known). I was able to start EWB (and be assigned my Mentor) within 12-24 hrs of paying my tuition. EWB is pretty easy to use and informative. It is long, however - I did it over the course of two days. Good luck to you! Please keep us updated on how you're doing.

    teacherturnedRN--I can't believe it! I just signed back on to let you know about Khan, too. I started watching the Stats videos a couple of weeks ago, but just switched to Algebra, figuring I'd likely take that first. I hadn't heard about him until I saw the name in a thread on here somewhere. The Algebra is coming back to me, but I've never taken Statistics, so we'll see how that goes. I really like his approach to teaching. Please keep us updated with your progress, too. Hopefully it will fly by!

    myviefolle07-Good luck with your waiting game, I know how it feels. I waited over a month to have my transcripts evaluated, and then wished I hadn't! Good luck and please keep us in the loop.

    I'm set to start 8/1 also. Today is the 23rd and I'm still waiting for my transcripts to be evaluated. Should hear back today. From looking at the transfer guidelines on the WGU website I'm guessing I'll have to take a social science of some sort, lower division math, and biochem in addition to the rest of nursing courses. Good luck to all of us as we hopefully get started Lorraine.

    Hi RN Rules - How funny that you're using Khan, too! Good luck!

    I am supposed to start 8/1 and I am waiting on transcripts from another school, they have the transcripts with my A.A. and A.S.N. you would think that would be enough! I have on the other transcript my english comp II, med terminology, and a computer class. I sent them my official transcript from that school b/c I do not know why they have not gotten it but they won't use it because it didn't come sealed from the school-hello it says official on it and matches my transfer credits on my other one! So stupid! I hate that school, I paid them extra to have same day mailing and that was the first week of July, yet WGU still doesn't have it? I am so mad! I haven't heard from WGU yet but I am assuming I can't start for 8/1

    How frustrating, Chaisaci! I hope you can still start on 8/1. What does your enrollment counselor say? Good luck!

    Hi teacherturnedRN! I just emailed her because since our final interview I haven't heard from her. I am hoping for a reply today. I really wanted to start ASAP! Fingers crossed! Also they haven't given me my financial aid award yet, wth is going on! I hope I hear some good news today, it is very frustrating indeed!!!!

    Hi all, just wondering how everyone is doing--especially those who have been waiting to see if they can start on Wednesday. I finally finished the EWB, and had my first phone call with my mentor. She seems very nice! I have been poking around the WGU website looking for any info that I think will help me. Also have been browsing through the Communities. Anyone else have any news?

    Hi RNRules - I'm starting Wednesday, 8/1 as well. I spoke with my mentor last week for the first time and am scheduled to speak with her again this Wednesday. I'm happy with how it's going so far. Good luck to us all!!!

    Not so lucky here, the one school with my med terminology and my Eng. Comp 2 JUST sent my transcripts this week, although I paid for same day shipping the first week of July
    So no August start for me :/ and I just gave notice at my first nursing job after only 3 weeks, it was God Awful...not a great week for me!
    Looking ahead, school starting in Sept, I plan to whoop butt and finish fast, Ideally I want to be done in the spring, but we will see and off to get a new job where I can actually work as a nurse and not a chauffeur!
    Good luck to you all this week, very excited for you and an tiny bit jealous!
