    Hi!
    I liked program. The nursing concepts exams are tough but fair. The CPNE is quite the clinical--it is hard!!! I would suggest this program to those who have LPN experience. I wouldn't recommend the program fresh from LPN school...although I am sure it can be and has been done. I just feel you need to get some experience first. The entire program is based on clinical experience as a pre-reg to even be accepted. I also really only feel that LPNs and paramedics should be allowed into the program (I know not everyone would agree--but its my honest opinion). The faculty are very helpful and supportive--it can be done. You must be a highly self motivated person to take on this program. It is a good program and I am blessed to have had this option to fulfill a dream.

    I hope I am posting this reply in the right area. It is rather confusing just new and not sure if I have the hang of this. GN1974 how long did it take you to complete the ADN program through Excelsior College?
