Excelsior Grad Nov '12 New RN!

  1. 7
    Hello my fellow EC friends! I wanted to update you on my EC experience! I took my first excelsior exam on October 2011 and passed my CPNE September 2012. Also I just recently took my NCLEX and passed so now I'm officially a RN!! I'm proud to say that I'm an excelsior grad to anyone who asks. Excelsior is not just the "easy way out" to get a RN degree. In my opinion it's way more harder than most RN programs around. You really have to be motivated and dedicated to pass excelsior. I hope my post motivates you to continue to try your best and don't give up!!! Your almost at the finish line!!

    Right now I'm working for an acute rehabilitation center as a primary nurse. They have already changed my title and have me doing RN duties...I know...ALREADY?! I'm not complaining though. I don't plan on changing jobs now, maybe in the future...we'll see.

    How did you study? Did you do a tutoring program like College Network or Achieve First?

    Congratulations!! I can't wait to be in your shoes!! - studying for LS3 now with a friend who was in a formal program and studying for nclex. I must be learning a lot more than her because I am consistantly scoring higher on the studygroup101 quizzes than she is and our backgrounds are similar except she went to class everyday and I study on my own. I highly recommend Excelsior also.
