Excelsior now accepting financial aid for associate nursing program
- 0Sep 10, '13 by CMLPN08Just found out that excelsior is now accepting financial aid for associate nursing program. You have to take courses though and not credit by exam. This just came into effect July 2013. Anyone else heard about it or have more info? I have filled out my fafsa and just have to apply and pay fee then send in my transcripts.

- 0Sep 10, '13 by CMLPN08so it has changed? When I spoke with someone from college the other day and mentioned financial aid for program he agreed and said yes this is true. Did you use to have to be invited to the ADN pilot program?Quote from zanfelhorthe pilot program was an invite only NSG RN ADN program eligible for Fin Aid... I am now waiting for CPNE date... I have made some friends aware of it, so i guess we will see how that works out... Good luck!

- 0Sep 16, '13 by CMLPN08You can only use for 8wk courses but I have heard of students using refund and do some credit by exam. You can do both or just credit by exam or just curriculum. I know of price which really isn't a huge concern bc there will be bills until the day I leave this earth and it's an advantage bc I don't have to quit my job in order to go to school.
