I am a 2012 graduate of the program...A former LPN fir 7 years. I recommend the program to as many LPNs as possible. I say check with the school. I used excelsior for the sciences, and I took my pre-req's at CCP. I also had the option to test out of intro to nursing, nursing fundamentals, and health assessment. I ultimately went through the above courses because, at that time, I was out of nursing school for five years and wanted the most updated info for practice. Let me know if you want additional info...just PM me!
- 0May 26, '13 by Nursejenni1Hey! I am looking into the LPN-BSN program. I only have a few prereq's from a community college years ago. I am enrolled in excelsior and trying to test out of a&p and micro. Do you know if I can take all the required prereq's through credit by examination with excelsior? I was also thinking of just doing all my prerequisites at la salle. That would be time consuming and expensive but it would probably be a good experience and good head start into the achieve program. Wanted to know your thoughts? I am trying to think positive about all this and get excited to get back into school but feeling a little discouraged at the same time. I would like to add i'm an LPN since 2010.

If you have more than 30 credits, you are required to take pre-req's at LaSalle, which I needed to graduate.
I found it more bang for my buck to take as much pre-req's through Excelsior and CCP...I also had an Associates, so I went right into the Nursing classes.
