Posted

I am still so excited! Anybody else starting April 1?

As of now I have a tentative May 1st start date as well. But they are still reviewing my transcripts and Im awaiting my intake interview with them. I'm going for the RN-MSN leadership also.

Hi niteshift_...

I am also starting May 1 RN-MSN leadership! The transcript evaluation didn't take long but I am appealing 1 of my courses with them which doesn't take long either. (I already appealed 2 others which they reviewed and accepted within a few days). I've been torn about whether to go for the BSN first but my enrollment counselor told me it's fine if I switch at this point but I need to declare it by the intake interview. I am leaning toward the MSN.....

Good Luck!!

Thanks you too! I hope I am making the right decision going right for my msn after getting licensed less than a month ago.

Hey niteshift

Well my 3rd appealed course was approved yesterday (same day I submitted), so don't hesitate to appeal if you have documentation on courses that are equivalent - they only give you 15 days from the date on your evaluation to appeal any courses on your transcript.

For me the A&P I and II with labs were called Life Science I&II at my school many years ago. They were termed LS because they were strictly for nursing students and were actually more intense than traditional A&P. I called my nursing college and got the course description, I also still had the textbook (A&P) so I emailed them the course description and table of contents of my textbook.

The 3rd course they didn't initially accept was Developmental Psych- they assumed it was an infancy to adolescent course, not through the lifespan as it was. Again I got the course description and emailed them- It was approved same day. Now if I only had Stats, Micro, and Biochem!! Going in with 79 credits and have my intake interview this coming Wed. My enrollment counselor assured me that May 1 starts will not be filled before then. Right now both RN-BSN and RN-MSN are filled for April :cat:

I'm sure all will go well for you and look forward to hearing about your experience and progress.

I'll be starting May 1st too RN to MSN.

I am starting with the first three MSN classes. Professional Presence and Influence. Organizational Leadership and Interprofessional Team Development and Pathopharmocological Foundations for Advanced Nursing Practice.

I turned in the appeal form, I hope I did it correctly because now that I think of it I have not heard anything back from them yet. Would they email me through the email address that I have been communicating through?

Definitely email them at transcriptinfo@wgu.edu and cc your enrollment counselor. My first appeal I submitted my documents through the form they sent but only a couple uploaded and I was denied. Then I emailed all of my documents as attachments and it was approved. I appealed 3 courses which were approved. I think the first one took a couple days for them to email me with the denial (via my personal not WGU email). I also called them when it got denied because I had a feeling that everything didn't upload - and I was right. Good luck! Kathy

Hi Everyone,

May 1st start date for RN to MSN, Leadership and Management. Maybe I'll see some you on the discussion boards here or on Facebook.

Good Luck to everyone!

I start the MSN education track in April. I'm sure the leadership and education track share similar classes.

Good luck to all of us!!!!
