    Your mentor will go over all that with you, but a lot of people seem to start with Care of the Older adult, which if you work with the elderly is probably one of the easier classes. Another option, believe it or not, is biochemistry - seems a lot of people starting with that lately since it gets you used to doing the 'project' type of classes.

    Thx featherzrn!!!
    I can't wait. Would you say 3 classes every 3 weeks to complete is doable? Or it just varies on a case by case basis? I have to say bravo to all the people that finished within 6 months. Simply amazing.

    It's up to you. Some can complete classes that quickly, some cannot. It's all in how much you want or CAN put into it - if you have other responsibilities such as kids or a demanding job, you may not be able to go that quickly. In all fairness, most people do NOT finish within 6 months - there's an active facebook page for the program and I am guessing that most finish in 8-12 months. Several of us have done it in 6 or (much) less, and there are those that need to take it slower (and there's nothing wrong with that!) and take two years.

    I finished in 3.5 months, but I neglected everything else including sleep to get it done.

    WGU's materials emphasize using a proctor for the RN to BSN classes. How does this work?

    The objective tests are proctored. You either go to a testing center in your area or you use a webcam at your home where they can watch you take the exam that way -- whichever works best for you. The webcam is supplied by WGU.

    I need to know if someone had taken History at WGU. It says:
    Themes in U.S. and World History
    Proctored, essay
    Applications in U.S. and World History
    Performance assessment

    Did anyone recently take this class? How was it? Was the essay really proctored? Thanks.

    It's an objective class that requires a proctored exam/ use of a webcam. Thats my nest class after biochem. Good luck
