Thanks, "TheCommuter". Are you thinking about doing it? ec
I am not going to take this route for several reasons.
First of all, I am originally from California. A degree from Excelsior College is not accepted by the California board of registered nursing, which would be bad news if I ever wanted or needed to return to my home state.
Secondly, these distance nursing programs tend to be very expensive. I'll attempt to gain acceptance into an affordable LVN-to-RN program at one of the local community colleges.
Finally, I am the type of student who learns best kinesthetically and visually. I need to be in a traditional brick-and-mortar classroom. I am not good at conjuring up the motivation to teach myself a new subject independently with no help from instructors or classmates.
