They definitely recognize LPN to RNs from Excelsior.

However, I don't think they recognize paramedic to RN or Resp. therapist to RN through Excelsior.

Good luck.

One of our members was a paramedic who then graduated from EC. Florida would license him by endorsement (applying with an RN license from another state), but not for initial licensure.

His solution: He applied for licensure in Minnesota, where they are apparently pretty quick about licensure. Once he was a licensed RN in MN, he turned right around and applied for an FL RN license.
