    Does anyone here or is anyone taking the LPN to RN through REGENTS (Excelsior College)?

    I read a post where they failed one student during the clinical exam part because her apical pulse was different from the examiners. Anyone know anything about this program? What about RUE????

    Thanks.

    I did the regents program in 96. Yes, they failed all of us on vital signs on one of our patients if you can believe that. I'm looking for the latest study guides for the seven exams because I'm starting a business writing good, quality, inexpensive study guides for the tests. Do you have them or know anyone that does? I can tell you the details of who did and didn't pass the clinical and why (I passed the first time although I did fail that one patient on VS) Thanx for any help. rayardi@earthlink.net

    I graduated from Excelsior this spring and got my RN license last month (I still have my LPN license). For my money, it's the only way to go. You have to be VERY motivated and push yourself to finish the classes but if you don't have the time to go through a traditional program it's the way to go.

    As a side note, I didn't think the clinical was as brutal as advertised. Just give yourself three months to prepare (seriously) and you'll do fine. I passed it the first time around.,

    Good Luck.

    Do you still have the study outlines for the 7 exams?? Need them desperately. Thanx for any help. rayardi@earthlink.net

    L2: I will be ready to sit for the RN boards in October. I went through Excelsior. I found you have to be very disciplined. (I had to learn this trait, and it was not easy)I work full time. I could order most study guides and schedule and pay for exams online, which really helps. Check to see where the nearest Prometric test center is. Mine was in the next city-an hour drive. Most tests you can take on Saturdays. But, I made it, between dealing with a 17 year old, a home, a husband and working full time oh and I can't forget NASCAR, I made it. Good Luck!

    Does anyone have the outlines for the 7 excelsior exams? need them badly. Thanx rayardi@earthlink.net

    If you are referring to the content guides, then you can download them for free on Excelsior's website.
