I don't believe WGU offers a CRNA program, unless something has very recently changed.
works as a RN.
I think the OP means has anyone who obtained their BSN from Western Governors gotten in to CRNA school.
I am sure someone has, but it has to be a little tricky. As I understand it, WGU does not assign grades, so calculating a GPA must be different at different schools. I am sure if you did very well in your associates and any other classes you could swing it.
Thanks for both replies. PVCCHoo you are correct in regards to my question. WGU may bring your GPA down due to pass/fail structure and awarded GPA. Was unsure if this was competitive prior enrolling BSN for Grad school purposes. Although a CRNA is attractive due to independent/autonomy, I plan to shadow some NPs aswell due to I feel it fits my personality more in regards to interaction, writing prescription and care planning, not to mention FNP can also practice independently. Most people look at money difference, however I’m interest in happiness since you can still make a decent living. Im looking for experiences envolveing making the right decision for RN to BSN programs to meet long term goal; Graduate school and those that choose WGU for Bachelors level education and was successful in entry to CRNA programs post graduation of WGU. Any feedback would be super to help generate questions and support direction. WGU is First Choice.

I would advise a different RN to BSN program in order to secure a competitive GPA. WGU's pass/fail grading is equivalent to a 3.0 GPA upon passing. Not competitive.

Oh yeah. If you still have a choice, definitely pick somewhere legit where you can get a real GPA. I have an online BSN from one of my state universities and it did not seem to be an issue in terms of getting interviews. A friend of mine has a WGU one and he is still working on getting in somewhere.
PVCCHoo where has your friend applied and what path? Since WGU does offer 3.0 I was thinking he/she can ace the GRE or take science courses depending on his/she previous education. I’m looking into this move myself if I choose to stick with WGU after all research done with other schools and expenses.
Also if you know what schools your friend applied to will help tremendously.
I can’t remember all of them. He is putting his hope in Middle Tennessee with their rather large class size. He did well on GRE and has been a nurse a while.
But seriously, I did my BSN online for 11K from a state school that has a real brick and mortar nursing school as well. I am sure they have something comparable in most states.
I would steer clear of WGU if this is what you want. I know he regrets going that route cause it is making it harder on him.
