    I'm a Paramedic(fairly new too), only LS2, LS3 to go before FCCA and CPNE. So I'm into it more than halfway. I would suggest you lurk here often, doing searches for good advice, and avoid the 'doom and gloom' threads.

    Good luck,

    Time line. I was very motivated and finished my theories in under 4 months. FCCA is 8 weeks. ( Be sure to enroll on their time line due you will have to wait for the next online FCCA class.) CPNE test date is in about 3-4 months. They told me at least 6, but I was very flexible + got lucky!!! Happy with Excelsior so far. All business no games :-)

    It's doable if you're able to put in the time and effort. I already had my pre-reqs done before I started. It took me a little under 11 months from the time I took my first test to taking the NCLEX yesterday.

    The only way that you will be able to work in California as an RN is if you work for the VA or a Federal Prison. There is a possibility of endorsing your license after you receive a BSN from an accredited school of nursing. But you have to have worked as an LPN/LVN and have experience working as an RN first. It is a case by case. I got the information from an RN here on this forum who stated that he was able to endorse but had to go through many hoops. Hope this helps.
