Greetings to all, great forum. Sorry if this is the wrong forum, this is my first time. Curious if anyone can tell me if the Nursing Concepts from TCN or Excelsior are worth getting to prep for exams. I ask because there are various guides available on Ebay that are named exactly for exams (Health differences, etc) but I see no exams that are titled" Nursing Concepts". Thanks in advance for any assistance.

I did the Excelsior program for a while and got all of my classes done-ready for the CPE and then chickened out and went to a community college. I did not use the study guides that you could purchase, just printed out an outline of the test and studied with a Med Surg book-or whatever book fit the outline.

I think I figured it out. The Nursing Concepts was the old curriculum. The course names are different now.

You got it, Daron. Don't let those online scams trick you into buying material that you don't need!!! Call Excelsior and talk to your acedemic advisor before buying any materials.
