I posted this question on the Colorado forum, but didn't get a response. I see that there is alot of information about Excelsior, so if anyone can give me advice I would appreciate it. My first question is about the clinicals, how would you get hired or take the NCLEX exam if you haven't did any clinicals? Can this be done? Next does anyone know if Colorado accepts EC grades? This is where I reside as of now.
I have been looking into this for sometime, but just need this information to make my mind up. I just took my exam for re-certification for Surgical Technologist and I can now apply to EC. I do not want to pay for all this to find out no one will hire me. So if someone or anyone has any information I would appreciate it.

Do a search of the site. I found a bunch of posts on Excelsior. I plan to start as soon as I get my LPN switched from another state to Va. As for the clinical aspect, there is a 2 or 3 day clinical evaluation after you complete all the coursework. Here is their website:
This is the site for the Colorado state Board, you should bookmark that, you may need it in the future. I would email them any questions you have .
Hope that helps.
