I reside in San Diego, CA. I Graduated from Excelsior College in October 2006. It took me forever to finish, as I worked a Full-Time & a part time job. I decided to go that route, as I needed to work, & couldn't commit to a full-time "Traditional" Program". I was able to work, & go at my own pace. There are 7 Nursing Concepts Classes. Some of them are very hard. The CPNE Exam is at the very end, where you go to a location and complete your Clinical Performance in 2 &1/2 days. This is what most students Dread The Most. This Program Requires Much dedication & hard work. Having a Good Study Partner helps too. I don't recommend this program if you can't committ to it, & study on your own. They are pretty Good about excepting General Education Requirements from other schools. Call them at their Toll Free Number and request an imformation packet, as well as study guides for all of the exams as well as General Ed. They may have changed some things, so please call them & request the Free Information. I Hope that this was helpful. Any more Questions, Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Take Care, & BEST OF LUCK!
