i'm starting to take classes at Excelsior, currently an lpn and will be taking a&p and micro to start

is there anyone in the pittsburgh area along the same road?

I'm an Excelsior student, I live in Lancaster PA. I'm wondering how the CPNE will be at the cites in PA! How far along are you with your courses?

I believe there is only one site in PA at this time, Chambersburg. I haven't seen any other sites in PA added at this time but would love it if some of the teaching hospitals in Philadelphia would be added.

Aren't you discouraged about having to retake some classes???

How is it going as a Excelsior Student in PA? I also am in PA but haven't signed up yet. I want to but am hesitant. Any encouragement would be appreciated. Im in Huntingdon, PA.

Definitely the way to go. The only regret i have is i didn't do this sooner.

I'm seeing all these negative comments on other feeds about school not accepting Excelsior grads. I plan on continuing to get my nurse practitioner but I've done all my pre reqs with excelsior, do you know If schools accept their prerequisites? If so which schools? Thanks !

I live in Pittsburgh, north side to be specific. I'm just starting my nursing classes, currently self studying transitions.

I'm over near State College and wondering if I should take the plunge this late in life. I wish well with your courses!!

This school is accredited with the middle states. I wouldn't see why they wouldn't accept an associate degree from exclesior if you decide to continue. I know that Excelsior has an RN to masters program that I will hopefully jump into when i am done with the CPNE and NCLEX.

Im currently looking into the school. I have all my pre reqs already done for RN just need core courses (LPN for 2 years now) I am 80 miles east of Pittsburgh.

Hey! I'm studying to test out of some of my prerequisites at the moment but wanted to ask you how your experience with Excelsior is going so far? I'm planning on enrolling in the fall. I am taking the CLEP exams for sociology and College Math. I already took psych and English. I have been a LPN for over 5 years now and I'm ready to move forward with my nursing career. Any suggestions? I live in Akron, PA and work in Lancaster, PA! Hope all is going well with your studies í ½í¹‚.
