Does anyone know about the employment outlook for graduates of this program? Know anyone who has done the excelsior and gotten a job? (or not?)

I got a job as an Excelsior grad where I worked as an ER tech, my friend graduated about 2 years ago (but had issues finding a job due to no experience, not due to Excelsior).
The biggest leg up a traditional school has is many internships are geared toward traditional schools, along with school/ hospital associations and clinical rotations.
