    Just to let you know.... Received my transcript eval in mail today from Excelsior. They will accept 30 cr of my lower division classes, but will not accept my LPN (even though I am licensed and have practiced) as it was completed more than 5 yrs ago. Anybody found a way around this? Are all the LPN to RN programs this way. Doesn't make much sense to me. Looks like traditional schooling is the only way to go until I have my RN.

    Interesting. My LPN courses were accepted and I had been out 12 years when I started. I would get in contact with Excelsior and see what the issue is.

    ryaninmtv, Hmmmmmmm...... I will have to get back in touch with Excelsior. I have spoken with others who did the RN pgm and they did say that initially there were some hestitation with accepting LPN/LVN credits older than 5yrs but upon enrollment were okayed. That made me fume some more! Thanks for the info.

    I am in the Chancellors program and love it. I have had no problems with anything as of yet. My RN went through Chancellors too. She had no problems. It is flexible for me because I work graveyard shift. I can study when and where I like. I do not have to go to a class at any particular time. I had some pre-reqs that transferred with no problem. Good luck which ever avenue you choose!

    I recently started the program utilizing the RUE study guides. I'm very excited and I added up all the costs. It was a bit more expensive to go this way but then again if I quit my job to go to school full time it would cost bigger ducks in the long run. My instructor at my LPN school got her BSN thru the program. When I do go to clinicals w/Excelsior the hospital is located only 1 hour away from my parents house in NY.......no hotels for me! =)
    Good luck to everyone!

    I have known at least one RN who got her degree in this way and one LVN who is working on the program right now. They both recomend this program. I too am looking into this as the nearest college for me to go to is 1 1/4 hr drive each way and I allready drive that for work. Also would have to work full time.

    NurseTee,
    Indeed, you are correct that after you utilize whatever publisher for study guides to clep out of the tests you do in fact then have your final transcript sent to Excelsior (old name Regents) to be reviewed and accepted. Once that is done you enroll w/Excelsior college and attend a weekend clinical (to pass your CPNE). Once everything has been completed and you've passed all areas you are granted a diploma and then a letter is sent to your state boards of choice to sit for the board. MOTIVATION is the key, you have to keep yourself on track.
    I just chose RUE because I personally knew people who have taken and passed the tests and the board with this publisher. Seeing is believing to me.........and I saw the results!
    Have a great weekend!

    Hi all, this is the first time for me to post a message.I am glad to find a site where LPN's can network. I have been an LPN for a long time. Graduated back in 1979. I'm still trying to get this computer stuff .I enjoy reading the posts when I have the time. I am also working on my RN through Chancellor's. I had started going to school through a college but my second child {surprise child!!!!}came along. I have found I can study at my convience and go at my own speed. I also have to work so I've found this way works best for me. I'm really kind of worried about the clinical part but I keep plugging away at the books for now. Hope to be able to have time to chat more later.

    I recently finished an LPN Program and would like information(who/where do I contact)about the Chancellors program. How long ago did you do that program? Any info would be appreciated...
    Thank you,

    Peachesncream,

    I once heard that you can get everything you need from Excelsior, via study guides and such, not sure if this had changed.
