Hospitals not accepting the Excelsior Program?

  1. I am currently a LPN but I am very interested in the Excelsior program. I just heard that some hospitals are not accepting this type of "school" for the RN program? Has anyone heard of this? Has anyone taken the courses? Pros and Cons? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I have no answer, but I assume this is what you are referring to?

    I've never heard of a hospital not accepting an Excelsior grad. Some states don't accept EC.

    I wanted to make sure that isn't the case. I heard someone say that my local hospital looks down on the program. Some university's don't accept this program and it's hard to transfer the credits to continue the program.
