I have enrolled in excelsior but not taken any of the exams yet. I recently learned that Clark State has a medic to RN program (it's basically their LPN to RN but they allow medics to do it also) which is "online/hybrid" with clinicals in the Springfield area.
Has anyone been through this program (LPN or medic, or straight RN) and able to comment on how flexible they are with scheduling the clinical/lecture/exam portions of this class. I'm a firefighter, and RN programs seem to not be interested in coming up with a duty day program (I don't know why, it'd fill up fast and make a ton of money), so I'm looking for something that won't require me to burn hundreds of hours of vacation time.
I'm not thrilled with the stigma of excelsior, plus I was turned off when I submitted my transcript of about 150 credit hours from Columbus State only to be told I need to take some more gen-ed classes like more bio and chem (understandable) but I also needed to take some more english/history classes (absurd).
Anyhow, any tips or ideas you all can offer would be greatly appreciated.
