    One month into the program and my only regret is I didn't do it sooner! I am in the RN-BSN program.

    Hello everyone! I have been reading all of your posts and I am very interested in learning more about your experience in the BSN program. This is geared more to those of you that are 1st time students with no RN degree. I have a B.S. In Biology and i am having a very hard time getting into a program :-( How is this program? Has anyone had a hard time finding a job or getting into an MSN program other than the one MSN WGU offers? How are the clinical sites assigned? Is there anyone from IL enrolled in this program? I would really appreciate any feedback. Thanks alot :-)

    The pre-licensure BSN program is only available in Indiana, Texas And California. If you do not live in one of those states, you are not eligible. Sorry.

    What is the IRB you all are referring to. I have a BSN from University of Phoenix and I would like to get my MSN in education. Does anyone know what prereqs were added to your curriculum?

    SweettartRN,

    Did you complete WGU's MSN program in 6-12 months? Any suggestions for students planning on applying for the MSN program at WGU?

    Anyone have any problems with getting into other grad programs other than WGU after getting a BSN. I am interested in getting into a BSN to DNP after I get a BSN.

    I completed it in 7.5 months.

    Go at your own pace and don't let anyone stand in your way!

    I started my MSN in nursing education on October 1st. I have completed 6 credits so far and am working on 7&8. I am starting to formulate my idea for my capstone. Unfortunately my mentor won't open up my capstone & research proposal classes until I finish everything else, so I don't want to put any real work into it until I get approval for my idea. I think my idea is rock solid, but it is not nursing specific- it draws heavily on another health field, so I don't know if they will like that.

    Sweettart, how did you overcome this obstacle? Did you get approval to work on your capstone at the beginning of your semester? Or did you just finish everything else up quickly (like I am trying to do!) and get started on your capstone at that point?
