    all i can do is report what i have been told by the Nevada Board of Nursing. Sorry, not trying to argue. Just state what i have been told by many here in Nevada. Maybe Nevada has become harder. You could also ask the Nevada Board of Nursing yourself.

    Is there anyone out there that took an RN program, failed and then went to Excelsior. If so, please tell me what your experience was like. Did they except any of your prior nursing school credits and how long did it take you to finish the program. Thank you.

    I must say I am frustrated with the amount of time it is taking me to find and respond to posts. I go to my email and click on the link and then I am lost.

    So you graduated from the EC as an RN? I almost signed on with CN but something seemed fishy so I called EC. I'm going to take my boards, get a job and then begin EC. EC said it will probably take me about 18 months because there is about an 8 month wait for clinical. That's kinda long isn't it?

    You do not do clinical with EC. you have a test out at the end of school called the CPNE and its a 2 1/2 day test period on you clinical skills. But they do not walk you through any of it you just show what you know and you are tested on it. Someone please correct me if I am wrong, as I am not an EC student.
