    Congrats to all! Can you please help with this decision: I am finishing my LPN program this month and I am thinking about doing LPN to RN at Elcessior, but I am worried about the Clinical portion at the end of the program. Is this hard? Do most students pass or fail at the first time?
    I really appreciatte any help,

    Hi--first, welcome to nursing and congratulations on getting your LPN!!

    The vast majority of students pass the CPNE (clinical performance in the nursing environment) the first time. If most failed, I think the program would be in the toilet.

    That said, it is not easy either. You have to pay attention, you have to prepare. But it is definitely doable!

    Join the Yahoo group called nontradnurses when you are ready to start your Excelsior studies. There are files there with all the notes you will need to succeed, and plenty of support.

    In your application to join, just put that you are an Excelsior student or are planning on being one, whatever the case may be, and you will be admitted.

    Please feel free to email me privately if you have other questions--or you can certainly post them here. Again, congrats on your success and welcome to nursing!

    This is the group that helped me tremendously and they also have loads of files with much needed information. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/rnstudygroup/

    The Excelsior program is excellent and very doable if you stay motivated. The above group kept me motivated. I didn't think CPNE was difficult just nerve wracking. Good Luck.

    what kind of competencies were tested during the clinical? did you find out right away if you passed or did you have to wait?
