Well I think it is great I am originally from Kentucky and it does not matter what school you go to when you graduate in Kentucky you have to do 200 or 250 preceptorship hours. I have no problem with that it beats waiting to get into a program. It really depends on your situation. I had been in school before and had to stop to take care of a sick mother. my mother died july2009, and this works better for me so if I have any emergency with family I can stop. And start back up. But this is great and I am taking all of my pre reqs at a local college. I do already have some. I am now doing this with 2 other friends. And the rest of my classes at excelsior. I have a good friend I was in the military with who lives in New york she graduated from excelsior in a year. Took her boards and passed so it can be done it is up to you. Positive is as positive does!
I totally feel the same way you do Dlissa. I'm also taking Eng 101 at ga perimeter in Jan (online) and while I'm taking my English I pray I can study A & P and test ard March. As far as perceptorship, after taking the boards and passing GA BON grants you a temporary RN lisen. until you have completed your perceptor hours (you have 6 months). In my mind I'm thinking okay with any new job you have to do training aka perceptorship with another RN so this would take care of the hours. I could be wrong but thats how I'm thinking of it for now. I'm just glad GA accepts Excelsoir:spin:.
