RN-MSN Leadership Feb 2013 "Transfer credit not met" Questions, Feedback
Hello, I received my transfer evaluation and I have 6 courses that need to be completed. I am an RN with an Associate Degree Nursing. I have a couple of questions in regards to course transfers.
Microbiology transfer states "not met" for transferability. In the requirement transfer section next to Microbiology the, transfer evaluation states "This requirement may be satisfied by an Associate Degree in Nursing". With my ADN am I not exempt?
Another I was looking at is with the "Issues in Behavioral Science" the requirement section for this course states "one course in Life Span Human Growth and Development"; is Lifespan Nursing not an equivalent?
I have to complete "Health Assessment" I have completed Normal and Clinical Nutrition is this a possible equivalent?
Courses I have to take:
Issues in Behavioral Science
Language and Communication: Presentation
Applied Health Care Statistics
Clinical Microbiology with lab
I may be reaching with the getting equivalent credit with the Behavioral Science and Health Assessment courses but it looks like the Microbiology should be exempt based on my ADN, right? I have heard I can request a re-evaluation; I am unaware of anyone benefiting from this. What are your experiences with transfers at WGU?
Anyone else starting at WGU Feb '13? Can't wait to get started!
Quote from RNTC
If you truly put in the 20+ hours each week I think you should be able to get through about a course a month, but we will see. When is your start date?
I've heard of others completing it in 6 months and that it my goal. I plan to put in 40-60 hrs week and go to work very little.
