Western Governors University WGU Nursing Masert’s program is a joke Salt Lake City, Utah – I have been a practicing RN for over 40 years now. I was just awarded the 2019 Distinguished Nurse of the Year award by a Nationally recognized university. I already have a BSN and a Master’s Degree in Health Care Administration from an extremely competitive state university. I applied to WGU for a second Master’s degree to strengthen my standing at the COLLEGE where I teach nursing. WGU told me they didn’t think I could complete their program, I wasn’t bright enough! “Maybe a Junior College” could help me achieve my “dreams”. I found another school that will certainly help me fill this requirment only take me a little longer. I have RN, BSN, MHS, CCRN, CLNC degrees already!!!
