Hi everyone,

Newbie here (well kinda)

I'm sure this question has been asked a billion times, but I can't seem to find the answer anywhere. I currently live in CA and I am currently studying for the CA LVN exam. But, I am thinking about moving to Texas or Georgia sometime this year, but I will like to know if the states of Texas and/or GA will accept Excelsior College online ADN program?

Go here to find out:

State Board Requirements - excelsior.edu

Long story short: Texas is OK with it; GA is unclear--ask their BON.

The fact that you are/will be a LVN will help you with getting licensure in some of these states.

Also, keep in mind that CA does NOT accept Excelsior at all, should you decide to return to CA.

Georgia accepts EC but you must meet several stipulations and/or complete a preceptorship. I passed my boards 12/27/11 and am still waiting on the board to decide if they want me to complete a preceptorship. HTH

Thanks SegaGN,

What were the stipulations, if any? I know you're waiting about the preceptorship decision, but can you keep me posted about this? Thank you and good luck.

I am replying from my phone so I am unable to include a link; however, go to the GA BON website/RN and once there click on the tab that says "Georgia Law" all of the info is there.

Okay, thanks I was able to find the info...I was a military corpsman, so I guess it would be better to apply as a military corpsman. Preceptorship=volunteer right? So, how does this work..I graduate from EC, take the NCLEX, complete 480hrs, and than I will receive my license.

Thanks again!

For Military Service Corpsmen who Apply for LICENSURE BY EXAMINATION

If you were a military medical corpsman with at least two years of experience as a military medical corpsman, you will be required to complete a

post-graduation preceptorship of at least 480 hours, but not more than 640 hours, as determined by the Board that:

o you arrange,

o is under the oversight of a registered professional nurse

Yes, that's the process with quite a bit of a waiting game; I plan to complete my preceptorship (if needed) at my place of employment. Best wishes to you.

thank you,

Few more question, sorry if I am bothering you. But what about the enrollment process for EC. Do you have to enroll with them to take the EC exam? Is the enrollment cost really 795, just to have your credits eval? Did you take any courses with them? or did you test out of everything?
