    Call the local hospital human resources. Ask them if they hire graduates from whatever nursing program you're considering. PS Don't enroll with Excelsior College. They are a total rip-off and you won't be able to work in many places. Do you really want a program with so many probems?

    The credits were worthless when my girlfriend applied to college. She wanted to pursue her RN degree at a credible institution after learning no one in Ca would hire her with the Excelsior RN degree. She found out the classes didn't have enough credits for darn near any degree. Also, no school would let her in because she already had a nursing license and degree. Food for thought.

    Please know that other Excelsior nurses have fought the good fight. Still, when it all comes down - will you be able to get a job? California still permits some students to test (those enrolled years ago). But, when they get their degree and try to get a job - many, many can't, because they're Excelsior graduates. MOST California employers will no longer hire you with an Excelsior degree. Don't waste years and thousands of dollars to end up broke, depressed, and unable to make a decent wage.

    warning to all excelsior students - i want all potential and current students to know what happened to my girlfriend. take it for what its worth. my girlfriend was a california excelsior student for 6 long yrs (worked full time, supported and took care of her 3 kids) . she spent thousands & thousands of dollars for very expensive books, tests (about $200 per test). skills bags ($150), dvd ($130) , flashcards ($25), audio cd ($25), workshop ($700), and the outrageously expensive and outrageously easy to fail cpne (the 3 day clinical examination that must be passed to receive your rn degree). she failed the first cpne (as way more than half do). that meant another $1800 to retake that. of course, there were airline tickets (about $500 per trip x 2), hotels (about $450 per cpne) and car rentals ($250 per trip). all together she spent close to $20,000 to obtain what is essentially a worthless degree. not one of the 14 hospitals she contacted would hire her when she told them she was an excelsior graduate. are you hearing me? not one. so, when they tell you they're accredited, yada,yada,yada - remember it doesn't mean you can get a job. she tried to enroll in 3 regular, legitament college programs. they all refused her because she already had her degree and rn license. so now, she can't even do that. excelsior knew years ago there was a problem. they had the opportunity to work with the ca board of registered nursing. they didn't. if you don't believe me - go to their site. type in 'excelsior' and see for yourself. also, go to georgia's nursing website. see the problems there. nurses are facing the same issues as out here. they're being denied jobs too - because they're excelsior graduates!!! don't let this happen to you. go to a respected and accepted college.
