    did you talk to anyone at EC about the administrative fee, etc for them to review your transcripts? after that is done you will know which classes transferred and what you need to take, it will all be in writing in front of you, you may need some gen eds and they offer those also, or can take at a techinical college, that is how you get started but they want the $$ up front to review your transcripts. hope that helps
    Im going to send off my transcripts on Monday.

    I earned my ADN and BSN through EC, I also passed my NCLEX first try with less than 80 questions got a job at a skilled nursing facility in NY for 31 months. I re cently decided to go home for good, personal reason. Georgia decided that it will not endorse my RN license unless I complete 320 hours of preceptorship in four areas ( Peds, OBGYN, PSYCH, Med-Surg). Can anyone give information as to how this is attainable? I've tried every hospital and I am tired of hearing, "I'm sorry" quite frankly I am willing to pay but who and where? am running out of options at home for 6 months and no pay check

    Is there a school here in the state that offers preceptorship? I have emailed an instructor at Kennesaw State and her reply was, " I'm unable to accommodate you" What bothers me so much about this school is that it is offering 160 preceptorship hour for a cost of $1300+ and I do not understand why the school rejected my offer of paying for the 320 hours. In all actuality all I needed is 2 weeks of peds, med-surg, obgyn, psych.

    Have you asked the BON for the facilities where this can be done? I believe there is a location in Macon at the very least. It can be done, I know people who have completed preceptorships.

    Yes, I have contacted BON and spoke with ------------------ in regards to finding a location. At first it looked promising, but after leaving messages upon messages, I have gotten a returned call in almost the 6 months

    I will be starting my preceptorship soon through the Medical Center in Central Georgia in Macon. They have a designated program for those needing this requirement for their license.

    After calling all the hospitals local to me in the north Ga region and being told that they didn't have a preceptorship program or that they couldn't accommodate me because I didn't work for them, I finally called the medical center in Macon as a fellow nurse had told me he had completed his through there. Also, my contact at the Ga BON had said he thought this facility and the main hospital in Savannah had a program. I was just reluctant because it was so far away. There is also some info on another thread on here about macons preceptorship program. It was very refreshing because when I called she was like "yes ma'am we have that, and what is your email address I will send u all the info, but I can start u for about 3 months". I was elated too finally find somewhere that offered this. It will cost me 800$ and hotel stays to finish but it was not a dead end road.

    Thanks for your posting. After reading your success story last night I decided to research MCCG. This morning I went to do fingerprinting and while waiting I decided to call that same hospital and left a voice-mail message. By the time I sat reading a book in my car I decided to called home to see if they had returned my call and indeed they did. What amazes me is that I spoke with someone in the educational department and she was surprised that I did not get a returned call from so-long a time. But, to be honest it didn't matter because she took my email address right away and informed though that it will be in May of this. All I needed to do is filled out the paperwork correctly. It's being a long wait, however, I am very grateful that you have shared your information because that was the sole purpose of me calling them. Thanks again
