metroishka has 30 years experience and specializes in Tele, ER, PreOp, PACU.

I have been an RN for 30 years and love it! I am FINALLY working on getting my BSN and maybe even MSN! I am fortunate to work summers in the Midwest and winters in the Southwest.

  1. WGU MSN in 6 months

    Rarely do I get caught up in these kind of threads, but this really has my dander up! Despite mclennan's assertations, those of you who are considering enrolling in WGU BSN or MSN program will be challenged by the program but it is very doable. I s...
  2. WGU MSN in 6 months

    How many courses have you done since October 1st? It can't be too many, and if it is, then I applaud you for your ability to fly through the program with ease. Most of us are going back to school to learn something and are taking advantage of the o...
  3. WGU MSN in 6 months

    I take offense to the monkey reference also. I am almost done and it was not easy and was very time consuming. Unless things have changed, there are no discussion boards requiring a person to post either an assignment or a reply. There are communi...
  4. WGU class name equivalents

    I'll answer this the best I can related to my own experience as a going-on-2 month student at WGU. BBC 1 IS basic college level English. I had to take it, much to my chagrin. But, it is not hard if you have strong grammar and writing skills. It is a...
  5. WGU RN-BSN 10/01/11 start...anyone with me?

    The webinar on the community board says that you do not necassarily have to use a researcher, you can use someone that uses research. I used a CNS from our ICU that helped develop evidence based order sets. If you really get into a pinch, you can e...

    Good advice, I think. I started out by dutifully reading all of the assignments, but think I am going to just start focusing on the tasks and reading what I need to complete those. The reading is good and interesting, but hard to absorb all that in...
  7. WGU RN-BSN 10/01/11 start...anyone with me?

    I submitted my first task in NVT2 today, working on the other 2. Citing references was the hardest part and the thing I am most nervous about. I have PERRLA which helped in writing the body part of the paper, but it was still difficult entering the ...
  8. WGU RN-BSN 10/01/11 start...anyone with me?

    The facebook idea sounds good to me. I like checking out WGU facebook page too. I completed my first task (of 3) for NVT2 today. I just got my AAV on Thursday night, so I feel I'm off to a slow start. I'm also waiting to be enrolled in a couple of...

    I peeked at several of them and maybe I shouldn't have- it is almost overwhelming to think about all that work to do! Can you say "cold feet" "buyers remorse"? Ok, deeeeep breath here and I'll be fine.
  10. WGU RN-BSN 10/01/11 start...anyone with me?

    Wow, I never would have guessed that there was going to be so much info! I love it! I'm down to Mod 9 to complete, then DONE! Thanks for the info Krissa about being able to view the COS. That will keep me busy this week while waiting for courses...
  11. WGU RN-BSN 10/01/11 start...anyone with me?

    Module 2 completed. Going to take a break now. I don't think there is a huge rush because I won't speak to my mentor again til Thursday, so there will be nothing else open for me until then. I'll use the time this week to peruse the communities. It f...

    Thank you so much for the encouragement and advice. Congratulations to you too! Hope we can all follow in your footsteps.

    Got my emails too. One from my mentor, I have to send her a time when I am available to chat and "get to know one another'. The other re: EWB preparation. Guess the homework is starting! Yay!
  14. I have hit a brick wall!

    I wish I had the magic " get your groove back" medicine, but I don't. I would be upset too. It doesn't make sense to me why an RN has to go back and take A&P. It doesn't sound like you are going to change the requirement to take these courses,...

    I also work full time, Mon-Fri, PACU and PreOp. I have to take statistics, Algebra, Humanities as well as the nursing courses. Am hoping to finish BSN in 1 term. I am enrolled in RN-MSN, education. Can't wait to get started!
