Are there any Excelsior LPN-RN grads here who went on to a BSN program afterward?
- 0Jun 11, '10 by StrawberryBananahello all,
i am going to enter excelsior college as an lpn, in the state of ny. afterward, i would like to apply to several rn-bsn programs. i do not want to waste my time. i just wanted to get some feedback from others. did any of you have an issues, down the road, getting into bsn programs with your excelsior rn degree? i would be particularly interested to hear back from people in the ny area. my idea was to graduate as an rn, from excelsior college, and apply at a bunch of suny colleges. given that i will have small children, i'm looking to enter a bsn program (suny, hopefully) that i can finish my rn-bsn online, for the most part.

That would be wonderful . Do you know if it's just as competitive going from RN-BSN as it is getting into an initial Nursing program? Let me tell you, that was crazy! The place I applied had 600 applicants and less than 38 seats.
