    I know of many people who have gone on to go into APRN programs with a BSN from WGU. it hasn't seemed to be a problem. There is a person on this board who said she was accepted into two different CRNA programs, and I know they're highly competitive.

    WGU also offers two different MSN programs if you want to get a non-clinical MSN.

    Wow that's amazing! I know our average gpa for our class is 3.7 ( crna school that is). I would hate to limit myself to where I apply based on gpa but glad others are getting in. I know different schools have different requirements and different competitiveness.

    Just called Jacksonville is $447 per credit! Way to high considering many offer the same for 200-300 per credit.

    Ohio University only admits students from surrounding states (and California?). Need to call Admissions office to see if you would be eligible. I live in Illinois and was not able to apply. :-(

    is anyone looking at univ of wyoming? I keep putting it out there, but don't want to intrude if no one is interested!

    I just checked out their website. $152.00 a credit for out of state! Thanks for the lead, I'll have to look into this college a bit further. I would like to find a university that doesn't require any clinical rotations.

    does wyoming have a decent schedule or are they traditional semesters?

    I haven't gotten that far, but it's all online and they claim you can finish in one year full time, so I can only assume there has to be more than 2 or 3 semesters a year like all other online RN to BSN programs.

    Wyoming doesn't admit students from some states.

    The implementation of the Higher Education Act - State Authorization has affected the admission of out-of-state students in the RN-BSN Completion Program. The School of Nursing is no longer admitting students from the following states: Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, and Minnesota.

    Thought I would throw this one out there. I have been looking into them only statistics,micro,a/p required and your RN license. And the 36 hours of BSN courses. Expensive at $425/hr but, less credits to take so probably works out. Oh, and they say that you need to be RN for 2 yrs but, they do accept other medical experience such as LPN and Paramedics I know for sure. And, No clinicals! But, I am still looking around as well.
