    Hello
    Don't know much about what's covered in a statistics class but I need it for a prereq. The school offers the class on line. Is this doable or unrealistic? Do you all recommend taking it in a class room setting or online?

    Hello,
    I have been researching information about the Mid Anerica Learning BSN program. Is there anyone that is actually enrolled in the program and could kind of share there experiences? I read the website and spoke to the admissions department but I would like to hear from a student . 1st hand experience what are your pros and cons. Also I realise there is a pretty large tuition. Do you know of any loan companied that have student loans with that large of a cap? Or are you all using various companies? Every bit of information provided is helpful.
    Thanks!

    ok... I have been checking on ebay to purchase the set of college network study guides. I am getting all confuses about what was required before 10-2007 and what is required now. I thought that there was just a extra test added to the adn requirements?
    anyhow.... i have found some guides, and the explination reads:

    " the College Network 2006 Nursing Modules 1-6, Foundations of Professional Practice, Rx for NCLEX Success (3 notebooks), Rx for NCLEX Success Handbook and Focused Study Plan and The Human 3D (Extensive Anatomy & Physiology) CD/ROM."

    Are these the study guides that I will need to buy to assist me in passing only the nursing 1-7 test for excelsior now, for EC post 10-2007? or is this somthing totally diffrent?
    Thanks in advance!

    Has anyone heard of the international school of nursing? I understand that the school is based out of florida? To my understanding you study and take online test and travel to the Dominican republic for clinicals? After that is all said and done you take your boards in the city and state of your prefrence. A fellow co worker swears that it is wonderful program and kinda bashes the excelsior adn program? She says that there are many of her friends who have done the program, and are working in the US as rn's; now! If the international school of nursing is a wonderfull program, so be it.... I was just wondering if anyone has ever heard of it and if you all know of anyone who has completed it?
    Thanks

    Hello
    I was wondering if there are any LVN in the Dallas area doing the Excelsior ADN program? I recently started and was wondering if anyone would be interested in forming a study group. I am really excited about it! Also, I do understand that the college network is a publishing company but, I have heared that the consepts are great to study from. so... if anyone has the guides that they are not using please let me know. I am looking to buy them.
    Thanks

    I was just wondering.... I have read that some locations are tough on passing students, and some are not as difficult! has anyone heard one way or the other, which locations are strict, or more forgiving? I would like to know. I recently registered with excelsior. I am only studing for test number one. I would just like to be informed!
    Thanks
