  1. Hi there! Are you doing DNP online or at an in person program? Do you recommend doing informatics online? That's so amazing you are continuing your journey after a long while break.

    Financing Nursing School - Not Sure What To Do

    someone mentioned a state university which is another option to get a bsn. have you done your research on all the state schools in your area? depending on state, state university schools may be competitive too. if you were to do an adn or asn program you can always do an rn to bsn bridge program afterwards online. and online depending on how quick you finish the program you will be saving $

    Nursing and Personality

    I'm on the introverted side as well. I have been called out by one professor that she was worried I am too timid. I love interacting with patients though.

    What do you do to volunteer and give back?

    Before I considered changing my major to nursing, I volunteered at a local hospital as a concierge desk/guest ambassador and at the emergency department. Before I officially started nursing school, I volunteered at another local hospital on a nursing floor. It wasn't hands on, more like interacting with staff, visitors,family, and patients. This summer I did hospice volunteering, I was able to interact with several patients and it was a good experience.
  9. Do we need to have a webcam or some sort of video recorder to turn in head to toe assessment assignments ?

    about to start my LAST YEAR!!

    I'm going to start my last year as well in about 2 weeks. I'm going to be studying for the upcoming ati which I already know from my course schedule.
  11. If you had to redo the program what things would you do differently and also what would you do the same as the first time you did RN to Bsn at wgu ?
  12. For the load of work to be done is there hw/projects due every week or other week ? How many exams are there and are they spread out ? Are we allowed to use financial aid to pay for the online program or is this personal out of pocket? Thank you for replies
  13. I'm a 2nd yr adn student really interested in possibly doing RN to Bsn at wgu online. The typical 8 week nursing course has alot of material that goes by quick..so how much faster paced is a course at wgu for RN to Bsn in regards to the amount of material learned and work that is being done? Is there a mentor ready to assist you when you're stuck and need help at some odd hour at late night? For example let's say a prospective applicant has passed their nclex and wants to do RN to Bsn online , how long does it take for every thing to process and actually begin the program online ? Are there documents or important paperwork that we need from the nursing program for the application ? Thank you

    Night shift and clinicals

    Amy, you sound like one of my classmates whom I kind of know. He worked a lot. he would go straight to work after clinical (we had night clinical for med surg) and meet us in the morning for lecture at 8. you guys work really hard and I'm sure it will work out. Just remember to take care of yourself!

    Study tips?

    Don't try to read every little itty bitty in the book, it's too much for too little time. study what you need to know and put that knowledge into working use. download nclex apps onto your phone it will become handy. You can buy books too, a good series is the success books by Davis. stop and read the rationale of why something is wrong and right. it may seem time consuming to do so many nclex questions but it's time spent well.
