RT with 2.5 years experience mostly homecare. Is excelsior a possibility for me?

  1. Looking for advice. I am an RT with minimal hospital experience besides school clinical and working in a large university teaching hospital for five months. Since becoming an RT I have mainly done home care. I am a mother of three and need to work full time to support my family. I really want to be a Registered Nurse and someday a Nurse practitioner. Could I successfully become an RN through Excelsior and get a job with minimal hospital experience?

    Your chances are just as equal, or more, than any new grad without experience, if your state accepts EC. But that teaching hospital would be my first application if I were in your shoes.

    Whe I went through EC, there were two RTs within my circle of friends and they had no problems at all after the program. Of course, everyone has a different experience. Good luck to you!

    Your picture sure does look familiar. Have we met, other than in the mirror, I mean?
