hi i am considering enrolling in Excelsior but am hesitant i live in the rochester area in NY and wondering if its too good to be true? because it sure sounds like it! and do hospitals and such accept excelsior schooling education? help i need to make a decision

I'm an Excelsior grad, passed the boards in November. I live north of Albany, originally from Staten Island.

It's real, and it's wonderful.

Check out the Distance Learning Forum. There's a LOT of information there, and a lot of EC students and grads, as well.

Hi Sunrock, how long did the program take you? I already took all the nursing prerequisites that can be imagined with about 90 college credits, were the exams really difficult, how much time did u put into studying and how did your CPNE go. Did u have to wait a long time to take your CPNE..I am very sorry for bombarding you with questions. I just registered and my documents are in the process of being evaluated. Please help, thanks

:) one and a half years due to work, the cpne was tough but i made it in 2 tries. No i did not i told them when i wanted to test. If you just registered then it is 4-6 mos. unless of course you have placed yourself on the cancellation list, then it is quicker, but if you are not ready do not put yourself on the cancellation list. No problem ask away.
