Straighterline Credits Question

  1. 0
    If you use straighterline to get a few of the Gen. Ed. Credits for your BSN at WGU, or any one of straighterlines other partner schools, and actually graduate from the school with a degree and plan to pursue graduate study (Like for NP), will an issue arise if you got credits from straighterline and the school your applying too for graduate study is not a straighterline affiliate school? Thanks.

    Generally, graduate nursing programs don't look at your individual courses and where they came from. They generally only require the BSN. I have seen some graduate programs that require a 3-credit course in Statistics, so this may or may not be a problem.

    However, if you're going into the WGU RN to BSN program with an ASN, your transcript will show credit for the WGU statistics course. At that point, I guess it just depends on how deeply they delve into your transcript. I went into WGU with Straighterline Statistics credit, but it wasn't used because I had an ASN. I imagine that an ACE-approved course should work for any school that accepts ACE credit.

    This is all just speculation, though. I'm interested to know for sure myself.
