    There are at least two: Excelsior College and the University of Phoenix

    School of Nursing - excelsior.edu

    New Jersey Excelsior grads where are you working?

    I thought for Excelsior you needed to work as a LPN. At least in my state, EC requires you to work as a LPN before and while going to school. I don't know about University of Phoenix...

    Better than most articles I've read lately...they stated "field experience required" before entering a nursing program, which is true for any online program in my area.

    I wish they would not give the median income, but the minimum income...

    As an Excelsior (then Regents grad) you need an extensive nursing background of an LPN. You have to have bedside nursing skills, IV drips, wound care, IM, SQ, med passing, assessment skills, transfer skills, pediatrics and geriatric and everything in between. Plus, if it is still the same, you have to have so many hours in your practice.

    I hate the media at times.
