  1. What a crazy four months. The MSN in education is going through major changes. There is a new change everyday seems like. We are required to complete 8 credits each semester and I did that with 10 weeks left. Planning to knock out at least 1-2 more classes. Lots of writing in this program. So far I have written a 14 page paper, 19 page paper and 20 page PowerPoint and took only one test. I like it so far but its a lot of work. My course mentor is great and very helpful. I would recommend this program.
  2. Commuter. I finished my semester ahead of schedule two weeks ago and wanted to do a certain course next but my mentor only allowed me to take one of the hardest classes in the program. They said it has to be approved by them and we have to take the classes in a certain order,
  3. Hey everyone! I started MSN in Education program May 2014 and just turned in a paper to complete my 3rd class. I have 14 more weeks to complete 2 credit hours for the semester but will definitely excel and try to complete 2 more classes. The new curriculum is keeps changing for the MSN program. Its crazy but I pray that I stay the course and don't get the short end of the stick. I really wish I didn't have to write so many papers. My last paper was 17 pages long! UGGH! Overall I am still pleased with program and can't wait till its over!

    has anyone changed their concentration for MSN?

    I totally get it. I looked at both and weighed my options. The thing I liked about then Msn education track is that it did not solely focus on education in the classroom. A lot on the master programs at the brick and mortors in NC focused on teaching in the classroom and I felt that would limit getting jobs. The supervisors at the hospital I work at are called Clinical educators. I was also intrested in being a diabetic educator or working in the education department at my hospital. There is so much more to it. Good luck in whatever you decide. I know it's hard because you feel like you don't want to make the wrong decision.

    has anyone changed their concentration for MSN?

    I am in the Msn education track and start may 1. I personally have not done it but I asked my mentor if I decided to change to leadership could I do it. She said yes if I did it early in the program. Unfortunately education tract has to take the organizational leadership course. If I change it would be Masters in healthcare administration. That would me my next pick at WGU. Look into that one. Good luck!

    WGU scholarships

    The questions are pretty detailed but I definetly have a story to tell. I talked about my struggle to get into a nursing program due to limited space and that I wanted to how frustrating it was. I also talked about overcoming other obstacles in life etc. just look deep and write from the heart. Good luck!

    WGU scholarships

    If your referring to the admission assessment, they will give you the topic and you just write about it. Pretty simple topic nothing too heavy.

    WGU scholarships

    I received notice today via email that I am one of the finalist for the ANPD scholarship worth $2000. They wanted to talk to me over the phone about my educational and professional background.I scheduled a phone interview this Friday and I am really nervous because getting this money would mean the world to me. Has anyone else received scholarship money from WGU? I will keep you all posted of the outcome!

    Question about course?

    Feathers it's a Msn course called Advance information management. Your read and and answer questions and after each section there is a quiz. I have done one unit and answerd the quiz questions but have not submitted but saved it. You have 6 attempts for the quizzes. I wonder do you have to get a 100 on the quizzes or just pass them. I have a call with my mentor tomorrow.

    Question about course?

    I have an appointment with mentor on Monday. She has already set dates and approved my classes for the semester. Question? I have access to the courses reading material and test. I am sure I can start reading but can I start submitting the quizzes for the course. The course is a performance assessment and not objective. I started a quiz but got scared to submit cause it's not May 1st. I guess if they didn't want us to start, they wouldn't have put it up. What are you guys doing?
