hi everyone, i am an LPN and I am curious as to if anyone out there has gotten there RN through Rue Education and got to sit for state boards and is now a RN? Thanks
I am wondering if you receive any reply from your query re: Rue?
I already have applied at Excelsior & I am planning to get materilas from either Rue or College Network.
You have any info to share?

I agree. I completed Excelsior with no outside help from (workshops, workbooks, study aides, RUE, College Network,etc). I got A's and B's. Exclesior provides all you need and the exam study guides are free (even downloadable). Exclesior also offers extra stuff you can do to study (like join a peer group, Excelsior direct workshops, conferences, practice exams) that cost extra.
The only thing besides texts that I used in prep for the exams were the Excelsior online Practice tests $75 each, worth much more! So, I say this to let you know it definitely can be done without spending a bunch of extra money. It really bugs me that RUE and College Network and others try to come off as a "program". They are not a school at all. They are an outside supplement to Excelsior College trying to help you yes, but also sell you something you may not be in need of. Be very wary!
