Hello all, 

I am soon to be starting the journey of my MSN - Education at WGU. My anticipated start date is Feb. 1, 2020. My goal is to complete the program in 1 year. I am wondering if anyone else will be starting around this time! I'm both eager and nervous to get started.

Also, has anyone recently graduated (within the last year) and have any comments, concerns, advice, etc.? I have looked into a vast amount of programs, and although a lot of programs have a lot of pros/cons, I have decided to go with WGU for their cost and flexibility. Any and all comments are welcome and appreciated!

Hi! I started the MSN education program at WGU this past November. I finished the orientation and 2 classes so far. I'm finding it pretty straightforward so far but nervous about the field experience aspect at the end of the program. Mainly the part of finding my own preceptor....How's it going for you?

I went through the program a bit over a year ago. It's a good program. If you're really motivated, you can knock it out much quicker.

I started March 1, 2019... had originally planned to complete in one year, but realized quickly with my full time work and family life, this was unrealistic. So I'm going at traditional pace, and it still takes a lot of time! I do see people posting that they fly through the requirements... but I kind of feel like if I am getting a degree in education, better to actually learn than just check off the boxes, know what I mean?
