WGU, RN-BSN

Specializes in Pediatrics.

I have already posted in the distance learning forum, but no replies as of yet, so I am posting here to hopfully get a little more traffic.

Has anyone taken classes through them? Western Governors University, I followed their banner add from this site and I have spoken with someone in addmissions, but I am looking for anyone who has taken classes from them, what has been your experience with them been like. They almost sound too good to be true and it has my experience been that if it sounds too good then it generally is. Thanks for any input you may have.

I am on the last leg of my RN to BSN through WGU. It has been a wonderful, convenient experience! I love the self-paced model. The mentors have all been great, and it's been extremely painless! I work full time as director of a home health agency and have a very hectic schedule - WGU has worked out beautifully for me. :)

Do a search on here for WGU. there are many posts. I know because I"ve checked into it myself. They look great! And other posters have said that their degree is accepted when they go do their MSN too :)

Has 5 years experience. Specializes in ICU, CRNA.

My preceptor did his RN to BSN through WGU. He said it's nice because you can take as heavy or as light a load as you need, there are no clinicals required and it's fully accredited. As proof, he is applying to CRNA school now, and he's already had two interviews, at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, UT and at Mount Marty College in Sioux Falls, SD.

If it's good enough for CRNA schools, it's good enough for me!

It took me 18 months, but during that time weathered 2 family crises. I've heard of people completing in 6 months, though probably with little outside demands on their time. I think without the family issues, I could have easily finished in 12 months.
