    BUT WGU requires IRB approval for all capstones- whether the institution requires it or not. I know at my institution - the types of projects you mention get either an 'expeditied' or and 'exempt' review - but they still have to go through the entire IRB process.
    I'm 99.999% on this statement.
    AND you must have WGU's own institutional IRB approval as well.
    Interesting! It's a good (albeit sometimes long, drawn out, and fraught with lots of hoops to jump through) experience, so I imagine they want you to have that!

    I think the process of hoop-jumping DOES - if nothing else - give you an up-close-and-personal view of IRB and the amount of detail, thought and consideration that must go into ethical research.

    Untrue, the mentor/professor has complete control with the Capstone process.
  7. by   marycarney
    Capstone yes- all other courses (including all four research courses), mentor is not involved in the assessment process whatsoever.

    I can only speak for myself as it differs for each person based on pre-reqs, but I did 35 credits in just under 6 months.
  10. by   Reyval04
    Yes I need 35 credits also. How much time did u put in each day to finish in that time frame?
  11. by   Reyval04
    Cayenne how many credits did u take to finish so quickly?very impressive.

    I did 31 in six months - the way you can do that is that you are NOT held up my any type of course structure. Unlike a brick and mortar school, you don't spend 16 weeks getting through the content. If you bust your a@@ and have familiarity with the content already, you can do it as quickly as you can crank out the assessments. Because WGU measures competency not seat time.

    I completed my MSN in eleven months, five days - INCLUDING a capstone research project with full IRB approval.

    Financially it would be great to finish in one term - I finished my BSN in one term from WGU but it meant doing course work on Christmas, so I have vowed to NOT put my studies before my family again.
