    I look forward to your experiences....I just contacted WGU today for the RN to MSN. I have a BA in another area. Don't know if I'll do it; I have a daughter finishing her 4-year degree in Psych and starting on her Masters. Are you planning to work while finishing in 6 months? If you can do it in six months, it's a very inexpensive degree.

    I am hoping to start on 4/1 as well, but I am waiting to hear the final word I guess. My goal is to complete it in less than 6 months as well. Good luck everyone!

    I'm 4/1 also, although I am waiting to get final word on what I need take. All my transcripts just arrived a few days ago. 6 mos is definitively my goal. I going to try not to work so I can get it done ASAP. I would love to be part of a group. I'm guessing that I'm going to have to do prereqs like BioChem and College Algebra. I hope I'm wrong!

    I am going to start in April 1st as well. I am nervous and excited. Please, would anyone tell me I can do this? I have been wanting to do this for a long time now. Six kids later and have been a nurse for 17 years, spent most of it and still loving it at Peds Hem-Onc BMT in SF, I am ready. Is it really doable in 6 months? Less pain is better, plus it's all I can afford. Thanks for your input.

    You can definitely do this and I think your experience will help you! I've been a nurse for almost 10 years and have 4 kids 10 and under...and completed the BSN in slightly under 6 months. My greatest piece of advice, which I've posted on these boards before, is to do something school related every day...even if it's just reading a chapter or watching a webinar after a long shift. On your off days, make them Jammie days and just work on school stuff. A clean house will suffer, laundry and grocery shopping will suffer. I actually utilized peapod for groceries at times! Celebrate every accomplishment but then move quickly onto the next. The end result is amazing and well worth it!

    Another piece of advice is: if you're stuck or blocked on a task, set it aside and work on a different task. When I was having a block, I would avoid school for weeks at a time, which is totally counterproductive. It's okay to set it aside, but you don't have to finish it before starting something else.

    Did you have any prereq to take? I have 4 if my appeal goes through. I'm worried the prereqs are going to make it take longer than 6 months. I hope the fact that I'm barely working and my kids are grown-up will help.
