    There are states that have concurrent clinical requirements and not all states accept EC's academic curriculum.

    Excellsior College new york nursing graduates have had same issue recently. see state board licensure requirements here

    These are states having concerns over concurrent therory and practicum, so i would look at other 37 states to obtain license:

    Alabama
    Arizona
    California
    Georgia
    Illinois

    Kansas
    Louisiana
    Maryland
    North Dakota
    Oklahoma
    Vermont
    Virginia
    Washington

    Even once licensed in one state......another state may refuse you licensure by endorsement. However I know a Paramedic that went to EC and is an excellent RN.......they were an excellent paramedic as well.
