WGU MSN in 6 months - page 8

Is it possible to do the msn educator program in one term 6 months? In a way that's 2 quarters, so it would be 15 units per quarter. If the student is able to handle all the load, is it possible to... Read More

    That has not been my experience at all with brick and mortar. I have been talking to advisors at Johns Hopkins, Vanderbilt and UCSF for their DNP programs for ACNP. All of them accept WGU's credits and so far everything will transfer. I just need to decide if I want to spend $57 or $100 or $125 on my DNP...ugh. But, your message was written well over a year ago, so maybe things have changed. I also have a friend who attended WGU nearly four years ago for her RN-BSN and then went on to Baylor for their MSN/ACNP program with no transfer credit issues. She's now a lung transplant ACNP at Baylor in Dallas.

    Metroishka, I agree with you. I don't think McLennan is talking about the same program. This is not SUPER hard, but it is very time consuming, you need a good solid writing background, and the online proctored exams are NOT easy. I am pretty bright, but am finding this program to be fairly challenging, although I am enjoying it a lot, and you can't beat $3300 a six-month term for tuition, and the ability to accelerate classes from the next term at no additional charge. I just completed 11 courses (and it will be 12 if I pass my objected in healthcare statistics on Tuesday) in my six months. I will not be continuing this pace next term due to the time requirements for the practicum, but it's been a good six months.

    I'm with you SweetheartRN. I've never had to contribute to a post/blog either. I have had to write exhaustive research papers. This person is not talking about the same program at all. And they are not worth arguing with! LOL Anyone attending WGU knows the format, and obviously that's not McLellan.

    A recent (2012) WGU RN to MSN just told us on the our social networking group page that she got full acceptance for the Post-Masters FNP Certificate at SJCME!!!! It can be done, she's living proof!!!!

    Sure cant!!! And I'm Willing to deal with finding a graduate program that will accept the credits, to go through a good and well-tested program that is one of the most affordable, if not the most affordable online college on the web and in the ground! I am already aware of many that do, and we have students who are graduating reporting getting into DNP and NP programs. I heard that a few have even gotten into CRNA schools.

    It's actually just as much, actually potentially cheaper, to attend WGU as a State University RN to BSN program, and you can accelerate through the coursework quicker of you wish!!!

    Can't best that deal.

    I have been trying to get IRB approval through the VA Hospital where I work for 6 months . I took a term break and still don't have approval. Mine is an exempt project, but goes through the whole, lengthy process. Any suggestions?

    I want to pursue my MSN educ in WGU. Has anyone compared the tuition fee cost with other online schools? Are they accredited. Have read reviews about WGU in ripoff report and some reviews are scary. Thank you.

    WGU is accredited, and the tuition is one of the lowest around because they are NON-PROFIT!.

    As far as ripoff report- there are trolls everywhere. WGU is well-respected and totally legit.
