    Federal audit: Utah-based Western Governors University should repay more than $7 million in financial aid - The Salt Lake Tribune

    Western Governors University may have to write a $712 million check to the federal government, based on recommendations in an audit report that says the online school’s offerings are “correspondence courses.”
    Released Thursday, the report by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Inspector General has found that most courses within WGU’s largest degree programs fall short of financial aid eligibility under Title IV of the Higher Education Act — and recommends the repayment of $712,670,616 awarded to students since July 2014.
    “None of these 69 courses [out of 102] could reasonably be considered as providing regular and substantive interaction between students and instructors,” the report states.

    Tell your daughters to look into Travel nursing after getting a year or two of experience. Try going for the high paying specialties like NICU, ICU, L&D. You can make pretty close to that amount of money while being paid to travel all over and see the country as well.

    Yawn to the biggest protest in US history? LOL. OK.

    Yesterday was a incredible and beautiful show of power and unity that was desperately needed in this country. I couldn't be more proud to be a woman today and hope this is only the first step in a incredible political movement. The fact that Trump held a press conference not to discuss this but to instead discuss how many people attended his inauguration compared to his tells you everything you need to know about the kind of 4 years we will be dealing with. I hope to see this continued kind of strength as we continue to battle for peoples rights across multiple ethnicities, backgrounds and cultures.

    I've been currently working as a Labor and Delivery Nurse for going on 2 years and have decided to go for my FNP-DNP. I was thinking it might be a good idea to get a position in the ER in order to learn a new set of skills and to get use to being exposed to a wider population range?

    Is this a good idea? Would this benefit me more after getting my FNP or would another area be better? Thanks!!!

    Thanks so much for the response.

    Here's a link to the program:

    Family Nurse Practitioner | College of Nursing

    Basically I'm currently attending WGU in their RN to MSN- Nursing Education. The school is very affordable and I could get my masters with very little debt. I'm debating whether to leave the program when I compete the BSN portion and enter a different MSN NP program which would cost 20,000 more per year.

    Or get my masters from WGU and then get the NP post maters certificate which would save me money but I'm concerned the certificate wouldn't be enough for employers.

    Greetings all. I'm currently completing my BSN and am planning to go on with plans to be FNP. I'm currently researching programs and while I can find masters programs, I'm also seeing a lot of Post-masters certificate programs for Nurse Practioners. I know I could do the DNP but I'd prefer getting a masters as every job announcement I have seen only requires the masters.

    Are the certificate programs sufficent enough after getting a masters to work as a FNP? Do employers take those or only the NP masters degrees? I want to work as a NP and get my masters..just don't want to bury myself in debt doing it.
