    Congrats! That is so exciting and encouraging to hear. WGU is at the top of my list to apply for the BSN Prelicensure program. I am also considering WGU for masters in a couple of years :?

    My Capstone project is based on my work setting. It is much easier to do a project based on experience. I am doing a qualitative study. It is doable. It didn't take me too long to reach this far. I started October 1, 2011 with only a ADN degree. I got my BSN through WGU while pursuing my MSN. I am almost done. Thank God!

    To maryCarny,
    You are an inspiration. I have been an ADN nurse for 20+ years & have had some resentment toward the idea of pretty much "having to" return to school to maintain job security. I am working in a teaching hospital & wish they would offer a significant discount to their employees furthering their education, but since that is not the case- I have been shopping for the right program for me. I think I have settled on WGU. I appreciate the information you have shared here, as well as your enthusiasm.

    I have been reading all your postings and I am glad that I am already scheduled to start my MSN (Education) in January 2013. From what I hear, WGU is ok. Is anyone starting the MSN (Education) in January 2013? I would love to have a study pal. Please let me know.

    What does the oral defense entail, and is it required for the BSN also? Thank you in advance.

    No, an oral defense is not required for the BSN
