    I started the RN-BSN program in November, and it is very doable, I have completed 9 credits so far this term, and am half way done with my last class for the term, to finish my 12 credits, leaving me with only 11 credits left Honestly if I would stop procrastinating then I could be farther along in my program, but allnurses draws my attention all the time
    I work full time on a rotating shift. You do not have to check in online at certian times or require you to make so many post or responses to classmates, so if you work nights you just study when you can.
    You do get assinged a mentor who checks in with you once a week to answer any questions you have and to see if you are able to stay on track.
    Almost all of the work is writting papers and care plans

    if you've now graduated from wgu with a bsn degree, i'd love to get your take on the program. i've got my adn and would like to get my bsn as quickly as possible. i know i want to do it completely online, but there are plenty of brick and mortar schools who also offer a completely online component...so it's really a tough decision.

    i think the main point that is drawing me towards wgu at this point is that it sounds like the program may be able to be completed quite quickly. but i've not been able to get a real good handle on the accuracy of that yet.

    anyway...hope you see this post and can maybe give me a feel for the curriculum and type of assignments you were presented with....along with any other insight you have

    Would WGU except credits from a Diploma RN Program into their RN/BSN program? Thank you.

    I'm not really sure. I would recommend calling their 800 number and talking to an enrollment counselor. I've always found them to be very helpful and knowledgeable. Sorry I'm not more helpful.
