Degree: RN to BSN

I would not recommend this school if you are working full time. I signed up during covid and was working as a Nurse, The hours during this time was very busy. I worked over 100 hours in some weeks. They have a loop hole where if you don’t contact your enrollment counselor by a certain time they can re-start the semester. I didn’t realize this because I was working so many hours and the school was new to me. So they stopped my school and re-started my school. I personally feel that just because they... Read More

There are some good things about having completed my bsn through WGU, but the negatives do outweigh the positive by a long stretch. The positive is that I saved money by completing the degree in 2 terms, which in my case worked out to around $7300. I do believe they have increased the tuition rate recently, but it was possible for me to complete the program and save. The negative is that the school has an utter lack of honest, professional, transparent communication to students and is tremendously... Read More

I had a great experience with WGU. My Mentor was great. It is an independent study college for those working in the field for a few years. Read the instructions and answer the questions for the assignments. There are many resources available but they will leave you alone if you prefer, which I did. I did 9 classes in one term(6months) but decided to take my time for the rest, doing only the minimum. Watch the recorded lectures and do the modules and quizzes and youll succeed.

I searched long and hard before deciding on what school to attend to get my BSN. I have a BA in another field, and have been an RN with an ADN for 13 years. I had finally decided that it was time to start my Advanced Practice journey.. but I had to have my BSN completed before I could apply to any Graduate program. Full disclosure .. I saw the completion of my BSN as a necessary EVIL to get to where I was going, most programs that I researched took between a year and a year and a half at a cost of... Read More

I had a great experience with this program. It was affordable at approx $3,700 a term. They break your terms up with 12 credits per term but you can easily pull up classes to your current term as you complete them. I did 46 credits in 1.5 terms, 9 months. Many do it in 6 months. Student mentor support is great. Course mentor support is average. Tutors/help are easily available and really helpful. You need to be very organized and self disciplined to accelerate through it at your own pace. The classes... Read More

I loved this program. The competency based classes were great. If you have prior knowledge in the area, you can quickly finish a class in a matter of days. This is not an easy program, it just cuts out all of the busy work. There are no specific deadlines, no class discussions (other than the introductory class, which is new since I graduated). I was able to finish quickly, and when I finished early my second semester, I was reimbursed a prorated amount. I highly reccommend this clas to family and... Read More

This program is a ridiculous coaster of caios to follow. The courses and information can change at anytime. The "mentors are just paid to answer the phone but lack any knowledge or assistance. It is in my opinion that the way assignments are worded they are purposely made to be confusing so doing assignments will take longer ultimately earning them more money. There is no flow in the course work or class selection. There is a WEB of call centers that you need to contact if "there's an issue", which... Read More

I started in October 2017 and will be finished by February 2018; as of right now, I only have 3 classes left and 1 of those is a clinical. The faculty is excellent, well prepared and friendly. The courses are well constructed with availability of live classes, recorded ones, online textbooks, and support from a course adviser. It truly does allow you to go as quickly as you want or as slowly as need be for remediation. I already have another bachelor degree so this design has been beneficial and... Read More

I highly recommend this college. The classes are tough, but all of the mentors are fantastic! Very flexible, military friendly, you can pretty much go at your fast.English is my third language, but I finished my RN to BSN in about 14 months. My mentor, Jamie S. was great, she guided and supported me all the time. The course mentors will help you even if you are going through tough times. The fact that a school actually cares to try and see you succeed is special. Overall I would recommend this school... Read More

WGU- Achieve your Dream

Do not question, just do it. WGU has changed my life for the better. I am a mom with 1 full-time job as well as a weekend job. I took my time and recieved my degree in 14 months. I could of done it in one year if I had planned accordingly. I never thought I could have done it, and now it's complete. I will continue on with my MSN-Education. The only advice I could give is to go for the RN - MSN! I second guessed myself never fully believing I could do it!

Western Governor's University offers a comprehensive BSN program that caters to the full time working student. The instructors and staff in general are very personal and during my studies, I had lost my father and six months later, I lost my father in law. The staff went above and beyond to give me the time that I needed to make arrangements, grieve and pick up where I left off. They not only taught compassion, but they lived it! Highly recommend!
