Quote from Nurse_Ben
I think excelsior only does RN to BSN.
And you would be wrong, Nurse_Ben. Excelsior offers an ADN program (two types), a BSN program, and an MSN program, all fully accredited by the state of New York and the NLN. It has 34,000 students, 17,000 of which are nursing students. They graduate (my estimate only) up to 250 nurses every month. (Yes, month.)
However, OP, you are in California, and your state's BON has determined that although you cannot graduate from Excelsior without demonstrating your clinical ability in a much more intensive manner than any traditional school requires (I just did it, thank you, and it was a major bear), Excelsior grads don't meet the licensing requirements for your state.
So, unless you are close to a border and intend to practice on the other side of it, you probably best look elsewhere, until the political forces swing the other way and they change their minds again. (Sorry....)
