I am now working full time as an LPN and want to look into attending Excelsior's LPN to RN on-line program as a part-time student. Has anyone done this, and how much time a week should be devoted to this for studying? Also, is it true that it costs about $15,000 for this program? Has anyone received any grants for this? Any insight would be appreciated.

- Feb 23 by PrayeRNurseI completed Excelsior in less than one year. I did not pay that much however cost ay have changed. You pay as you go and so that helped out. I did one course every two or three weeks. I learned more than my brick and mortar friends did in their program. I did enjoy the program. You could even do your CPNE in NY and save money that way. I am now a 4.0 at Arizona State University RN to BSN program about to graduate this May. I completed ASU's BSN in 8 months. It is how hard do you want to work. I put in aprox 20-30 hours a week. Hope this helps you find the best school for you. Talk to many and look at several programs.
- Feb 27 by Student of NursingDon't worry about the SHORT-TERM financial impacts of Excelsior College. Let's be honest: when you do get that RN, your yearly income will increase anywhere from $15k - $30k per year, more than enough to cover the expenses of Excelsior Colleges RN program. Remember that there are no secrets for passing this degree plan. Excelsior College gives detailed information from start to finish. The question is, do you have what it takes to decipher this info? If your answer is yes, continue - if not, you may be better equipped for a classroom-controlled environment, instead.
