Degree: Healthcare Informatics

When I was first considering enrolling WGU, this is one of the first websites I visited to read what other students had experienced and from the mixed reviews I was hesitant. So I wanted to share my experience for anyone who might be considering WGU. This school is for professionals with experience either in the field they are wanting a degree in, or experience in a closely related field. The class work is challenging and you will be taking a variety of courses which entail anything from having to... Read More

The program is labeled as Health Informatics but the focus is Health Informatics and Information Management. Most of the time things run smooth. My issue is the school does not back or support you as a student at all. They have your money so they don't care. The PPE process is a nightmare. You do all the work calling around finding places. The contract gets bounced back and fourth and they don't assist in speeding the process. Mine took almost a year. Schedule got set and when I started with the... Read More

I don't think any degree program is perfect. But I have learned a tremendous amount of real-world knowledge related to informatics. My mentor has been very receptive, and the same is true for the course mentors. There have a been a couple of classes that could have been presented in a more effective manner, but overall I am very pleased.

Maybe I see things a little different than some that's on here. This school is NOT for everyone. They do not hold your hand. They are not going to baby you into doing what you have invested your money (or loan) to do. I think it works for those who work and have other obligations that interfere with being in a brick and mortar. I have a great student mentor and course mentors. The forums are a big help as well. Not once have I encountered a situation where I was not able to speak to any mentors.... Read More
