hi all just wonderin if anyone knew which states do or don't accept excelsior college? I think calif doesn't and colorodo is about to not accept them after the first of the year but other than that I have no idea?
To the best of my knowledge, this is how the different state requirements break down (amended to reflect the corrections listed below):
Colorado: Anyone registered before January 1, 2006 will be grandfathered in with no changes. Those who are not LPNs will need 750 additional clinical hours. Those who are LPNs will need 350 additional clinical hours. Or, you have to work 2,000 hours as an RN in another state.
Kansas: EC ADN's must work 1,000 hours as an RN in another state.
California: EC ADN students have to enrolled on or before December 6, 2003 to obtain licensure.
Alabama evaluates Excelsior College graduates on an individual basis. It's not clear what this means but a paramedic was denied licensure in 2002.
Georgia will take Excelsior College graduates through reciprocity.
Louisiana, Washington, Florida, and Rhode Island accept LPN's only.
Illinois: You need to work two years as an RN in another state to obtain licensure.
