I'll take that as a challenge Congrats on the amazing pace you kept up. Any tips on how to accelerate that quickly?
Don't sleep much and do nothing but study when not at work. I started studying a week before classes started so I could take two class final exams (objective examinations) right after the term started. Boom! One week down, 6 units gone.
I tried to get at least one class done per week if I could manage it. There's a lot of help on the WGU RN to BSN discussion group as well.
Also keep your fingers crossed that you have a supportive mentor. A few of them are resistant to the super accelerator mentality. I lucked out and got one who would open up whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted - once I proved I could get through those first 12. If you zip through the 12 CU you get up front your mentor *should* be a lot more receptive to accelerating the pace. And yes, you CAN take your community health practicum in the same term as your theory class, so get the theory class out of the way as soon as you can.
I am guessing with 50+ units you are stuck with the sciences like I was? Those come with nifty lab kits.
