i am an excelsior grad actually (yaaaahhhoooo!!!) but i am still curious to knowing a little bit more about the deconness program.
i understand that it is distance, like excelsior, except a bit more structured. does anyone know how structured? for example with excelsior you can take as long as 7 years or as little as a few months. what is the minimal time that you can finish their program if you are NOT an lpn? what about if you are an lpn?
and altogether, how often do you have to go down to do the check-off clinicals? 5 times altogether?
i heard it's like $400 per course...how many courses are required (not including gen ed--i heard you have to have those all done before even starting the program?)
i may not have my info straigh, so please correct me if i'm wrong and add more...i'd realy appreciate it! i have a friend who is trying to consider all her options.
