    Ok so I passed Health Safety in a week with a "C" and took Transition to the professional registered nurse role on Friday and got a "B" after studying for 8 days. If you're having doubts about transition just go ahead and take it. It was not difficult at all. I used TCN and SG101 and took the practice exams. Im flying through these faster than I expected. Im not enrolled but I have done the application and sent in my certification and transcripts. Does anybody know when I can access the course outline for chronicity?

    @gatormedic, you have to enroll in the college before gaining access to the rest of the material. As well as taking the exams.

    Ok, I paid the application fee and sent in my transcripts and stuff. How long should it take to actually be enrolled? I dont want to get held back on this stuff. I waited because I didnt realize I was gonna finish the first 2 classes so quick and didnt want to have to pay the annual fee if I went over (doesnt look like that will be a problem though) Im actually going to do health differences for this next one.

    After you've sent in your $70 application fee and transcripts, it takes about 2 weeks for them to send you a preliminary evaluation of your transcripts. Once that is done, there is the $845 (I forget the exact cost) enrollment fee. Only after you've paid the enrollment fee are you eligible to continue with the rest of the exams.

    The app fee and enrollment fee are two different things.

    Cheers,

    Damn! 2 weeks is way to long haha. Well I paid the application fee and im gonna pay the increased enrollment fee of 975 bucks as soon as they allow me to. Appreciate your response. Have you taken health differences yet? Health Safety and Transition to the professional RN role were relatively easy. I cant believe that they would all be that easy. Which is the hardst because I will probably just start on that since Its gonna be a couple week before I can take it?

    I dont know if I would recommend it but I only used the mystudygroup101 and the excelsior practice test. I can not stress enough, the importance of taking the practice tests. I scored a 61 on both practice exams and got a B on the real deal. The practice exam is a very good indicator of the types of questions during the real exam. I thought the outlines/study material from 101 was really concise and easy to read. Wasnt as bad as I thought the test would be. Good luck!

    I was not told of an enrollment fee. If you don't have the money, can you set up a payment plan?

    EC does have payment plans. Check out their site (http://www.excelsior.edu/payment-plans) for more information. Which replies are you trying to read? You can navigate backwards through this current threaded discussion with the page links (1, 2, 3, etc.) above and below current posts.

    hey guys,
    I'm also starting the program hopefully this week. I found out today that there's also a tuition fee of 375.00 which does not include the enrollment fee. And once we get into the nursing courses, each credit for a course is 355.00 each. So if I take essentials of nursing and it is a 3 credit hour course, that is 355x3 which is 1065.00 for that course and that does not include the test cost. I have heard that the program is good, but that's a lot of money.

    That is incorrect ... the exam costs are NOT the same as the course costs. A lot of people make the same mistake when they first look at EC's program. The test-out exams, which is what you'll take for the ASN program, are a flat fee, and are not calculated per credit.

    If you go to the EC publications page, you'll see a link for "Fees, Financial Information and Forms." There is a document called something like "How Much Will Your EC ADN Cost?" Download that -- it'll spell it out for you.

    You were misinformed. Each test is 275. That is the fee you pay to test out as a distance learner. It is not times 3. The practice exams are 75. There is an enrollment fee around 900, but that can be broken up into payments.
