In answer to your question....sort of! Rue is not a college, Rue supplies students (at a big cost) the materials, textbooks, notes, study guides needed to pass the exams required to get your RN through Excelsior College. You actually get your RN through Excelsior College, which, by the way is in New York! As a current LPN you will need to take nursing courses and general ed. courses to get your RN. You can visit the Excelsior College website at www.Excelsior.edu
for more information. I have found their staff to be very helpful. They will send you material and information on how to go from LPN to RN. The courses are done by 'correspondence' in that you are responsible for getting the information and knowledge as outlined in the Excelsior Course Outline. Whether you do it on your own, or use a company such as Rue, is your decision. You can dowload free exam content guides from Excelsior College from their website, or they will mail them to you. Give them a call on their toll free number, and have them send you an information package...I think you'll be more than happy!! Besides the computer exams you are required to take for the courses you need, there is also a 2 1/2 day clinical exam at the end of it all. But you'll find out all about that. I am 3/4 of the way through my RN through Excelsior. This is the perfect place to come and ask questions as many of us have either completed our RN through them, or are currently doing it. And yes, Excelsior's RN program is accepted by New York, and all but 3 or 4 of the other states. Good luck, its a great program!
Now go get some sleep!
