Hello, all. I have considered WI's program for some time - I live in Georgia. I am not close to a school that offers the accelerated BSN. I have been in contact with the director there for awhile, expressing my interest and working VERY HARD over the last 6 months to meet prerequisites, and I have asked her about courses I am considering taking as to whether or not they will be acceptable.
Long story here.....but she emails me today and says: Oh.....the chemistry course you are taking will not work. You need Chem I and Chem II. I think I am going to get sick. I am taking Fundamentals of Chemistry right now - it covers general, organic, and biochemistry quite extensively actually. When I compare the syllabus to Chem I, I really do not see much, if any, difference. So, I was going to take another chemistry course as a "followup" to my general chemistry. This is something I was told would be fine, as long as the first course is college level and the second course is like a "followup." Naturally any courses names I and II would be back-to-back I guess. I am very concerned now. I'm not even sure I want to mess with WI anymore. I have had to change my "admission" date three times now because I wanted to be sure I had met prerequisites....and that those are all completed....which now takes me to the May 2013 cohort.
If I had to take TWO MORE chemistry courses on top of the one I am taking, then that means I I would have to go to the Fall 2013 cohort - the third or fourth time I would have to "wait." I just cannot and will not take TWO MORE chemistry courses on top of what I am already taking. That is crazy. Now I'm not sure what to do. I gave up my mental health practice to attend school full-time for these prerequisites so I could get them completed "timely," completed a CNA program, and just made some major life changes for this program. Now, I feel very defeated.
Thanks for listening......I would give anything to find another "distance learning" accelerated BSN but there just are not any more that I can find.
