    I'm pretty darn sure they are. If you look on their website for pricing you can see they are listed at $305, the CPNE went up a little over $100, too. I tried to pay for all the rest of mine, but couldn't !! You can only be registered for a certain amount of exams, at a time. It's probably a good thing, since you only have six months to take, them after registering. I'm hoping to get them done, but you never know what life throws at you !! :-)

    Wow, just checked it out myself once I read this and was hoping it was not much of an increase, but yep on July 1st the exams are going form $275 to $305. I have 2 exams left and will be paying those off before that change. Thanks for making it aware of the change! Forgot that each year EC makes changes.

    I remember when the exams were $60, $65 and the CPNE was like $950. Guess those were the days.

    Next dumb question. I have two more tests to pay for. If I pay for one with the facts plan before the 1st, would I still get the same price? I would think I would.

    6 years ago when I took CPNE gas prices were under $2.00 a gallon. Everything goes up.
    EC is still cheeper than going the traditional route. Sure the community college route is a little cheeper
    but don't forget to add the price of gas at over $3.00 a gallon and the sitter's fees onto the community college tuition
    and all the extra time needed to travel back and forth to classes 5 dyas a week and clinicals 2-4 days a week.

    Medic: I dont know what the "facts" plan is, can't help you on that on. I've been paying with my Amazon.com credit card, then paying it off as soon as possible, usually at the end of the month, and I've earned a lot of credit (money) back to spend on Amazon.com. I wish I had paid the enrollement fee that way !! I'm definately paying for the CPNE that way, love free money !! And I agree with you T-lo, prices go up, Excelsior is saving me but all the things you mentioned, plus .... I will be an RN at least a year sooner vs. going to my community college, that alone means I will earn around $12,000 more that year !!
    I'm so thankful to have found Excelsior, because I hate tradional schooling, especially group projects that are a waste of my darn time !!!

    Agree! It's the fact of living. Only suggestion to students is to get a roll on it and quicken things up if possible. I sure felt the pressure when heard that the FCCA was changed! Motivation mode kicked in!! Good luck fellow students and KNOW we can do this!!
