    Yes, you can. Of course, you should verify answers with the Florida BON. States with issues or additional requirements for Excelsior graduates are listed here: State Board Requirements - Excelsior College - excelsior.edu

    I have moved your post to the Excelsior College forum.

    I am no longer studying with Excelsior but I still check the postings from time to time.

    I agree with Pixie Rn, it is always best to communicate with the individual states BON.

    This link will at least help guide you to current states with known additional requirements. Last year when I was enrolled, only California was a hard "No" and would not accept Excelsior graduates. Joining the list: Alabama, Arkansas, Washington state is possibly joining the list. Good luck with whichever path you choose. State Board Requirements - Excelsior College - excelsior.edu

    Same link that I posted. I am licensed in Washington State as of last month, so it's still fine.

    Thank you for answering. The information you gave was very helpful. I live in Florida and think this program would be more conducive for me. I am an lpn seeking to become an RN quickly.

    As of July 2010 Florida started allowing Excelsior College grads to license by examination (NCLEX). As of Jan 2018 Florida will become part of the eNLC allowing nurses licensed in Florida to practice nursing in 25 other states with just your FL multi state license,just as any other compact state.
    Good luck to you

    Yes! You can sit for the state board exam in Florida after graduating from Excelsior. And the good news is that Excelsior FINALLY has a clinical test site in Florida!
