How do you do your clinical portion with Excelsior? Also I read on this BB where someone stated that you already have to be in the healthcare field for them to consider you. Does that include already being a nursing student in a traditional program?

I went to their website and found out that I would more than likely not be able to do their program. They want you to already be in some area of the medical field or have completed at least 50% of your ADN program and i am only in my second semester of my ADN program. I guess i will have to go with Deaconess. Oh well!!

Exceslior college students do not go through traditional clinicals. That is probably part of the reason they don't accept anyone without a specified type of medical background. Students take the clinical exam near the end of their program to demonstrate their skills. They don't "teach" you anything at the clinical exam....it is a test.
