I am in the WGU nursing program in California. I am over half-way done and I can say its a good program. Luckily I got in the 2-year program before they extended it another 6 months. From what I've heard, they extended it to allow students more time to complete some prereqs during that time. If you guys have any questions, let me know.

I definitely recommend the program! I was in the BSN program but switched to the MSN track since I've been enjoying the program so much. I've learned a lot and the tasks are challenging. My mentor is a great advocate and the class mentors have been helpful as well. I enjoy working at my own pace. So far I've had no issues and I'm pleased with the program. I've recommended a few friends as well.

Hope this helps!

The interviews are conducted over the phone or webcam. They ask why you want to be a nurse, why did you chose WGU over a "normal" nursing program, are you going to be able to dedicate enough time to study, are you going to continue schooling past the RN degree, etc.

And yes, I recommend the program.

Yes, WGU is really good. I started October 1, 2011 and now doing my last two courses; Capstone ans Oral. I went from ADN to MSN. I got my BSN when I was done with the BSN courses which was seven at the time. I wish you all the best. It is doable.

Is the BSN degree awarded to you if you finish the ADN/BSN program early, like some here finished it in 2 or 4 months... or do you have to wait till the end of the term?

Do they require RN work experience before applying for the MSN program?

I live in West Covina! I spoke to my mentor today and she said to start getting ideas for the Community Health Practicum since we live in California, a regulated state. Have you given any thought to this yet? PM me with your email so we can talk privately. :)

Has anyone experienced problems with the degree being accepted by other colleges for a MSN program? I am interested in the RN to BSN program, and am wondering on average how long it took everyone to complete. I plan on working as a nurse in Michigan, so I am wondering if this program is approved by the board of nursing there...Thanks
