    I am so sick with jealousy and yet I am very happy for you. Ugh ! You will probably be finished when I am only halfway through my program

    You will be fine. If only I did not have to wait till next friday for my mentor to open up classes for me. I feel like I should get stuff done now while I still have steam.
    oh well...

    I know that feeling. I took 12 credits worth of exams on one Saturday and then nothing for 3 months. Hang in there

    I love reading this thread! I'm in an ADN program and may graduate December 2012, so if I did do this program I might not start until Feb or March 2013.

    The "bio chem" class listed on their website kind of scared me too, but it seems like you can just take a regular chemistry class and not have to take that one? Also I think I'll want to go ahead and take nutrition ahead of time instead of having to take at WGU.

    It is way more involved than I thought, but it is definitely very doable.

    Here's my status updated:
    I am officially 2.5 months in today. I have finished every class, and am frantically trying to finish my practicum right now. I plan to apply for graduation sometime between December 1-10th and then immediately begin the MSN classes.
    So that will put me at 3 months to obtain my BSN! HOORAY!


    BTW- the research class SUCKS. There is no getting around it. It is hard, difficult, and I am hating this. I have submitted all the tasks required though, and each one came back with 2 revisions, so overall, I feel glad that I was able to get that much done.

    WOW Nicely done. I guess you have broken the record of 3 months and 8 days . How many hours a week did you put into the program and do you work/have a family? (If you don't mind sharing)

    No family. Well, except for my husband and three dogs, but he takes care of them and himself.
    I spent about 15-20 hours per week. Usually get up at 6 spend an hour or two online, go to work, and then come home and spend 3-4 hours at night. Sometimes I would just wait until the weekend. My employer also allows me to do schoolwork when there is downtime, so I can haul my laptop into work and tether via my iphone!

    I'm not trying to break any records though- I just want to get it done because a huge raise is waiting on me when I finish!

    Just in time for CHRISTMAS!
