I'm stuck between these two online schools and looking for help in deciding on where to get my BSN. I'm going to get my CSN certificate once I obtain my BSN. If you've attended/are attending either of these schools, or know someone that has/is, please tell me some pros and cons. Thank you!

I attended WGU for both my BSN and my MSN. I highly recommend it, particularly if you're very self-motivated and disciplined. I've known people who have gone through the BSN program in only one term.

OU has a very good program. I say OU, although I am a bit biased since I graduated from OU.

Is WGU pass/fail grading.  I have read on this forum that those "grades" are not acceptable for other grad school

Many people from WGU have gotten into a crna programs and FNP programs. It is considered a 3.0 not just a pass fail. It might be a little more difficult depending on entry requirements but it’s totally doable.

From my understanding WGU is not a pass/fail system any longer. I am attending the program for my BSN now. I like it a lot. Since it is self paced you have to be motivated but I work and am a mother to a 9 month old and have been able to complete things at a manageable rate. I also know people who have completed the program in a term (specifically a month!) but she was in between jobs and spend 10-12 hrs on school work a day.
