Excelsior transition exam

  1. 1
    Hello folks. I recently passed the health safety exam. Didnt do as well as I wanted for my first core nursing class. I studied for 8 days and managed to get a "C" using the TCN module and the practices tests. Im now preparing for the transition to registered professional nurse role exam. For this test im using SG 101 and the TCN module. Just wondering if anybody could give me some pointers. I.E.- how long did take to prepare, materials used, practice exam scores etc. I will be enrolling with excelsior after this exam and am hoping to take it in 2 weeks depending on feedback from YOU and my practice exam scores. So far the excelsior exams that I have taken are:

    Developmental psych- 2/11 "C"
    Sociology- 4/11 "passed clep" Was working alot so wasnt very persistent with studying
    A&P- 7/11 "A"
    Microbiology- 8/11 "B""
    English comp (uexcel)- 8/11 "B"
    Nursing health safety- 8/11 "C"

    If anybody wants any advice id be happy to help. Ive pretty much have only used TCN modules and the practice tests. GOOD LUCK TO ALL

    I am scheduled to take the Transitions test Sept 30, have had to reschedule about 4 times due to alot of personal issues. But I am using the Studygroup101 and the practice exams to study, as well as my LPN books. Good luck!

    I used studygroup101 and practice exams. Studied for about 4 weeks and got a B. I was ready after 2.5 to 3 weeks to take it but had prior obligations to take care of. I just purchased the Saunders NCLEX and would highly recommend picking one up. As far as the practice tests, I take them right away. After doing so, I study each question and each answer thoroughly to make sure I understand the concept. Good luck and PM me if you have questions. Good luck to all.

    You must pay for the exams before registering for them(through Excelsior..very easy to do via website)...you will get a confirmation from Excelsior stating you are ready to schedule the exam...very simple process..it is all explained in email.

    Congrats on passing your exams thus far. I'm studying for transitions right now. This is my first exam. I have the required books and plan to take exam in 3 weeks. You can take all the gen ed exams and 2 nursing exams before you register.

    Congrats on your success so far! I studied for transitions for 2.5 weeks with sg 101 and the practice tests and I passed with a B. The test is really not that difficult, although there is a lot of memorization, which is where I could have improved.

    Ya it is alot of material but I think I will do better memorizing info better than I did with Psychological safety on the health safety test where it seems more like a subjective analysis of info. I plan on giving myself 2 weeks for this one. At this point im just trying to get the exams done and over with. Not as concerned with the grades as long as I pass.

    Hi,
    I am so glad to see that there is someone else in the excelsior program. I live in Ga, and was skeptical about the program. I wanted to make sure that the program is not a scam. So, is the program good? I plan on enrolling this month. Any advice?
