Just completed RN to BSN less than 6 months

  1. I started at WGU on October 1, 2018. I just finished the final class. 43 credits in one semester. I needed a few things that I did not do in my ADN program, like statistics. I will answe any questions you may have to help you through it

    Congrats! How was Stats?
    How did you pace yourself?

    In which order do you suggest taking your classes in?

    Any tips for Bio-Chem?

    Statistics was tough. I am no math whiz. Would consider this my weakest subject. I went step by step with the book and worked the problems. I also utilized the cohorts and set up extra help with the math center when I did not understand. Bio chem same thing. I finished both in 2-3 weeks. As far as paceing myself. It's tough to answer as everyone is different. I do not have kids at home. I work 4 10hr days. Usually I made sure to go to bed on time. For us by 11. Since I have Friday, Saturday and Sunday off I utilized those all of those days to do most work. Just did nothing else

    43 credits in one semester?!?!? What is that like 2 years at in a typical university. These programs are a joke. They should simply ask us to write them a check in return for the piece of paper. I'm not taking anything away from you. Good job with doing what you had to do and moving on with your career!!! Nursing education needs a careful audit and some standardization

    You came in here to say that? Please take your negativity elsewhere. And I won't be addressing you any further. So no need to quote. Have a good day.

    Well I certain understand your concerns. I work for a government agency and the only way that my degree would be recognized for advancement is if it was an accredited school. WGU is accredited by CHAIIM, CCNE, NCATE, NWCCU, and multiple other Distant Learning awards. I carefully vetted where and how I would get my degree and so should you!

    You have plenty of time if you start now. For the most part, they are pretty helpful.

    I had everything ready to go and start a few weeks. They allow people to start at the beginning of every month

    So I have 55 classes to complete. I have about 25-30 hours each week I can dedicate to school. The program mentor they assigned to me was very discouraging from the beginning basically saying that this is impossible. Any advice? How general ed classes did you have to take? Did you take A&P? How do you suggest I pace this out? Thanks in advance!
