I just finished excelsior's CPNE in May; take my last requirement A&P on June 5th. I plan on taking boards early July and enrolling in WGU in Aug or as soon as I can; for their online RN- MSN program and then transferring to University of Texas, for a post master NP program. I have checked with UT and they accept WGU's master degree, checked with WGU and they accept all excelsior courses and said all I will have is the nursing for the BSN and those can easily be completed in 6 to 9 months depending on my commitments. Then on to the MSN part.
I did talk to some guy who graduated their BSN program and transferred to Stony Brook for a masters/np ; he said he had no problems completing the program did it in one 6th month term, cost was accurate with very few extra charges, lab fees ect.. He also said he had no issues with transfer of transcript because it stated the grading system is equivalent to a "B" so his transfer school gave him a GPA equivalent to all B's
So I did not answer your questions specifically but wanted you to know our journeys are similar and I couldn't find much info on these boards either, the guy I spoke with said WGU students are probably too busy doing homework to post.(lol!)
