What are my chances as RN??

  1. Hi everyone,

    So glad I found you all ( I'm a total newbie ). Here's my dilema, I'm a wanna be nurse (since I was 18) never went for it but recently completed my Bachelors in Org Mgmt 2004. Can't shake this heartfelt desire to go for my lifelong dream , (everyone who knows me say I'd be a great one, including my CNA instructor). Recently passed a CNA class with a "B" and state testing this month. Have some medical admin experience but want clinical sooo bad, Looking into Excelsior-- what are my chances-- where should I start since I'm not so young and Nursing is so competitive ??

    Look into your local schools and talk to them.

    You might consider getting an LPN first, which is usually a little less competetive to get into. Then you can get your RN after that.

    I think Excelsior is for people who are already an LPN.
