By fininshing 50% I assume you mean 50% of the clinicals, because THAT is what would qualify you for entry into Excellsior. My guess is that you must have passed that much in your current program not just attended.
Forget Rue. Excellsior is where you need to inquire. Rue is a publishing company who wants to sell you books and study guides at a higher cost than you can get by going directly to Excellsior College. There is no advantage what so ever in using Rue.
Excellsior is not an on line program. It is not a nine 9mo. program. You have been listening to Rue adds. (You study at your own pace not even Rue can change that fact.)
At excellsoir there is no instruction you must study on your own. Excellsior tells you exactly what you need to study and know. You get a blueprint of the exam. You take exams to meed the nursing requirement. Even the clinical requirement is met by taking an onsite weekend performance exam in a hospital.
You MUST be very sself directed motivated and have excellent study habits along with the ability and know how to find your own learnd experiences. Excellsior College will provide you with support plus the ability to talk and share with other excellsior students.
It is VERY challenging it is more Challenging that the nursing program you were in. I am in the BSN program. I highly recomend it. Excellsior is recognized by every state Board. Do NOT make a mistake in thinking this is a short cut or a fast tract. It is not. Those who TRY to fly through do not make it. And it ends up being a costly mistake for them.
