Chancellor's Help

Chipola Chipola (New) New

I am new to the board, so first a shout out to everyone out there. I am a LPN in florida and work for a wonderful company. They have offered to pay 5,OOO.OO dollars a year (up to two years) for me to become a R.N. They told my I can take any route I want as long as it is accredited. I have been researching for several months and come to the conclusion that I want to use Chancellor's. Has anyone here used Chancellor's for the entire EC program and passed ? I am open to all comments and opions!

Thanks

I bought the whole shebang, used it for the first exam in its entirety, and less for each successive exam.

The narrator makes so many errors in pronunciation that it was distracting. The material is not indexed. It can be tedious to read. Add to that the cost (even if they will finance it interest free), and it really isn't (IMHO) worth the cost.

You would be better off using the outlines from the school, reading the material suggested in the books the recommend, backing that up with notegroups online (free), and putting your valuable reimbursement money into reviews for your CPNE experience. It is closer than you think!

Good luck, and welcome to the Excelsior Gang!

Hi. I used Chancellors for all NC tests and a few pre-reqs. I really liked the study guides (didn't listen to any of the tapes though). I think they really helped me narrow down and concentrate on the specific information I needed to know to pass. I felt the EC study guides were so basic, I never seemed to know where to start &/or how to get myself organized to study. I've heard others say that you should follow the recommended textbooks and learn everything, but I had been an LPN for 19 years and had absolutely no difficulty passing boards w/ my study patterns.

BUT!! If I had this to do over again - I would NOT buy these directly from Chancellors. They are so much cheaper off ebay and then you would have more money to help study for CPNE. Good luck.

One thing I would suggest doing is going to the Careplan lab offered by Chancellors. It is a week long workshop to help you prepare for the CPNE and it is a very good investment of $800. Much better than the one offered by Excelsior. You do not have to buy their study guides to go to the Careplan lab. You can just do the lab alone.

I would not suggest buying their study guides for the exams. I bought one off ebay and did not find it to be helpful at all. The study guides from Excelsior may seem vague and basic but really they are all you need. It is very straightforward. You look at each point and build off that. May not seem like the "easy" way but really there is no way getting around it. You have to learn the material.
