I am looking into Lpn- RN programs, Excelsior college has popped up in my search.
For those who are going through or have been through their program, is it worth it? My Hubby is concerned about them not being Legit. LPN's how much credit were you given for being LPN's. Any difficulty with employers about having your degree through them.
Am I understanding it correctly in that you primarily earn credit through taking their exams at a center? Correct me if I am wrong.
Any other info you want to add will be much appreciated.

Well, I wasn't going to post this, but since you mentioned some concerns, what the hell.
California just recently banned Excelsior, mostly due to complaints from hospitals and nursing associations. Some hospitals refused to hire their graduates, which is what prompted the state to take action and terminate the program.
Maybe it won't matter in your state, but the program has been controversial in other states. Just FYI.
