Advice on BSN program

I am new grad nurse who started BSN at WGU in January.Due to family problems,job switch and COVID,I wasn’t able to complete my classes in time and got NP on 3 of my classes .I am hesitant to resume my courses thinking since I have NP on my transcript ,It would affect my ability to get into NP Program in future.

So, my questions to nurses out there who have been through WGU and NP Program, does having “ not passed “ on my transcript affect my chance of getting into NP Program? If it does ,is it better to drop and start a new program?

I got my BSN from WGU (RN to BSN program); a close friend of mine did as well and she, like you, also had a few "not passed" in her courses. We are both applying to FNP programs and both got accepted to a few programs with no hiccups; I am set to start January 2021. If this is any consolation, I, for the most part, enjoyed the flexibility that WGU offered and recommend their program to anyone and everyone I know. I hope this helps!
