    It would take 4 years if you did the minimum number of credits each semester (12 credits/semester for the undergrad courses, and 8 credits/semester for the master's level courses). It's quite easy to accelerate if you're motivated and don't procrastinate.

    But even with accelerating, I don't think I've heard of anyone who was able to do the whole thing in a year. More typical for highly motivated students is 2 terms for the BSN portion and 2 terms for the MSN, for a total of 2 years. I did my BSN in 3 terms (18 months) and it will take me 2 years to do my MSN. This is without acceleration. I've been a student at WGU since July, 2011. I plan to graduate in May of 2015 (I took 5 months off between the BSN and the MSN programs).
