    I finished in five months, but I did have a Bachelor in Business also, so I had to complete 27 credits for the BSN. I continued to work full time also.

    Mary, you continually impress me! I'm giving myself 18 months for the MSN, but that's crazy amazing. Was your capstone on back injuries? Shift work sleep disorders? I can't remember.

    You're very kind - my thesis/ capstone was on how night shift nurses learn to cope with circadian disruptions.

    Mind you, I had NO LIFE during that 18 months.

    marycarney, i just started with WGU BSN, my first class is RUC1...it seems everyone is having a hard time with this class. Any pointers? i could use any help possible. Haven't taken the pre assess yet, but from reading all the posts on wgu website there are a lot that have taken it more than 3 times. nervous wreck. Any help out there, greatly appreciated.

    I completed my BSN in 2011 under 4-5 months so it is doable. The MSN is what takes longer due to capstone.

    You did it under the old program - this thread is about whether or not it can be done under the new program.

    I am under the new program (started june 1) and have almost completed the program. One more class and I just need to finish my practicum and I am done. So it's possible, but you need to work at it really really hard.

    To Skoolrn: exactly! working ahead and plan with your mentor. Of course, I didn't go through the new program. But this still good advice.

    I did in fact complete my BSN through WGU in 6 months. No problems.
