Georgia LPNs

  1. Hi,


    Are there any Georgia LPNs doing Excelsior? If so, what is the cost?, how long does it take?, Is it possible to start from scratch with no college credits? Thank you for your input.

    hi! i live in south east ga and just graduated from ec. u would get better response if u put this in the ga state area or the distance learn area. i have run into quite a few ga people going this route. yes, u can do this even if u have no pre-req's. cost depends on how many classes u have to take. u can download the nursing catalog and the fees catalog from the ec website. excelsior.edu..good luck to u!

    Thanks for your response. I have posted on the Georgia state area. Which state did you take your NCLEX? How long did it take you to complete everything?

    i went thru minnesota...they were very quick to process, had online license verification for ga, and i found out i passed the next day. and do fingerprints/backgound checks to bother with. i took some time off btwn nc 1 and 2 but i took nc2 in i think feb or march of 2004 while i was on bedrest from complications with pregnancy and took my cpne in june of 2005, licensed end of sept. if there is any way u can go to a bridge program at a traditional school i would recommend that, this program is difficult for people to motivate themselves and the cpne is a killer. please do not think that this is an easy way out! please pm me for more info or if u need some tips. good luck with your goals!
