    Come over to the Distant Learning board under the Student tab. There are alot of people doing Excelsior. NC is a Excelsior friendly state so there are not issue. I work at Wakemed Raleigh and they did not have a problem with my degree. There are several nurses there that went through the program so most of the managers know about it. I also got job offeres from Johnston Memorial and Betsy Johnson. The EC test are hard but if you study you should have no problems. I recommend that you pay the $75 application fee and send your transcripts so they can tell you all the classess that you need. I finished the program in 12 months. (Dec 08). Its a program that takes alot of motivation to complete. Good Luck!
    Thanks!! I appreciate the info.

    I personally called the recruiter for BG. They set me up for a interview fairly quickly. Their Shift diff suck! Only 10-12% of your base. I turned them down and currently work at Wakemed Raleigh. Their have greater opportunity here but its hard getting on unless you know someone. You ladies get your RN and look me back up. My boss is very familiar with EC and had no problems with the program. She actually encouraged me to help another LPN on our unit to get her RN through EC.

    I would take anything at this point. I was just curious because I have an interview with them and they ran a background check. I am just waiting to hear back from them and really want the job. They said it would take 2 weeks and it seems like forever. Thanks

    Hi,

    I'm looking for a 'tutor' for CPNE. I had an easy time of things until the CPNE, the last hurdle. Did 2 workshops & was probably adequately prepared, but nerves took over & I was not successful 1st time. I need PRACTICE with someone standing over me scrutinizing my every move :-) Am also doing some cognitive/behavioral work on anxiety for this particular situation. Anyone out there a prior or current EC student with interest in paid or exchange experience?

    Anyone in NC get hired as an Excelsior RN graduate? I am a paramedic considering Excelsior but the NC BON said although they will accept Excelsior grads to take the state exam here and obtain your nursing license, there is no guarantee that you can find a job. They stated that most of the big hospitals in NC will NOT hire Excelsior nurses.

    Just saw your posting. Try Youtube.com. Look for videos that will help you. If you practice something over and over, you won't be so nervous, it will come without thinking. Take a deep breath, slow your racing mind down, and if you are unsure of what your next maneuver should be, just state to the nurse preceptor that you want to reassess your patient again. This gives you time to think over anything that you may have missed.

    Have you taken the CPNE again yet?
