i am an lpn with 13 years experience in hospital setting however; i have not practiced in 7 years as i have gone into clinical research. i want to get my rn and have been reviewing excelsior college as a means to get this done. what i would like to know about the program is:
once completing the rn aa, can one pass the boards? meaning did one feel as if they were prepared?
after speaking with an on line rep. from the college, one can either take an actual online class or just buy a book, study, and take a test.
what are the online classes like? are they like an online class you would take at a community college with actual instructors assigning homework and posting on a discussion board?
i really would hate to enroll and find out that i number 1, need to go back and study more theory than what i remember clinically. moreover, not pass the pa state boards.
