    Can you explain what you mean about Human growth and Development class to test out? How would you do that?
    I took the DSST/DANTES exam entitled "Lifespan Development Psychology" and WGU applied it to the Human Growth and Development requirement. You can find out more info on DSST exams at http://getcollegecredit.com/. But, if you're going to use these for credit, you have to take DSST/CLEP exams before you enroll at WGU.

    WGU denied my appeal. I'm disappointed but I paid my tuition and start 4/1/13. This leaves me with 5 prerequisites and the nursing classes. I thought having an ADN degree in Applied Science would mean that I had most of the prerequisites done

    It's been my experience that people with AAS degrees usually have MORE prerequisites to do. Good luck with your start!

    I was disappointed when my request was denied as well, but in the end I actually found it worthwhile and was still able to complete in my target time...I bet you will as well. Eye on the prize now! Congratulations!

    No worries, I started 2/13 RN-MSN and am taking the same classes you are required to take. Do the COS and Powerpoints for stats and you will be fine. I am working on Health Assessments right now and hope to pass the test next week. I thought about appealing but chose to start as early as I have not heard of anyone getting ahead from a review. With stats if you put in 25hrs/week you should be able to pass the class in about 3wks and same for health assessments, maybe sooner. Good Luck
