    I believe you have to be within 6 (?) elective credits as well, so if you have met your all of your humanities, math, etc requirements within 6 and I do believe info liter needs to be done as well to be eligible for FCCA/CPNE.

    You do not need Info Lit in order to be FCCA/CPNE eligible. You do need to have taken 21 of the 31cr of the General Ed stuff and all the Nursing Exams, then you are ready to do FCCA and SCHEDULE your CPNE once you have met those requirements. That's what I did! I will do the INFO LIT some time this month (Maybe).
    Hope that helps.

    where does the info lit course come from? EC?

    It's an online class taken through the Excelsior Website. Basically it's learning about information sources and how to look up things. The next class is offered in November.

    There is one through EC. However, many students have also taken one through Penn Foster -- I believe it's ENG103. If you're an enrolled EC student, you should get it approved through a nursing advisor first. Do a search of this forum for more info. The Penn Foster course is less expensive!!

    yes thanks, that sounds like a better idea. I think I'm going to tackle micro first. I've been putting it off for years!

    Thanks, that's great to know, and i am going to do the penn foster also, it is a little over $100 way cheaper than excelsior's course.
