Am I correct to say you don't have to enroll in TCN OR EC right away? If you have the material (shared persay) then you can test and the credit will go towards EC? I know you don't have to enroll in EC until you hit Nursing Concepts 3. But before that - you can still complete the necessary classes and apply it towards your EC degree? (Even if you chanced buying your TCN modules on ebay)
I posted this in the Excelsior blog too... just wanted to throw it out there in the TCN vs EC blog too....
I am on the verge of CN or EC. I had a CN "salesman" come out and show me all of the terms and small print. I didn't sign with them simply because I've not done all of my homework. He says,
CN Fee $5,705 to pay CN fee, book fees, bunches of other test preps etc.
Then your testing site fees (the classes I need) would be $2245
Enroll in EC at NC3 and pay them $3,465 for their application, enrollment, literacy course, clinical fee, and graduation fee. Total $11,495.
Now, I went to EC and found that my total would be almost $7,000 for all of their fees and my testing fees. That does not include books or any other study material. THEN, I also read they charge $275 per credit hour. That would be $5,500 more just for 20 credit horuse (which I need many more then that) AND that is not counting book fees. That would be approx $12,500 plus who knows how much in book fees???
Any advice on this? People say CN is so much more, but I am not seeing it. HELP.......... I want to get started....lol :lol_hitti:
THANK YOU ALL FOR READING AND OFFERING ADVICE!!! muah
