    Oh wow, what a crappy experience with EC. That is such a bummer that they changed things on you like that.

    I agree with you....... there are many, many LPNs out there who are far less skilled than some of the MAs who don't have any certification. It's kind of ridiculous the way EC does things.

    Sorry you had such a rough time.... but as you said, there is a reason for that.

    Hi! Yes, in California they will now accept the RN as long as you have fulfilled the clincial requirements all California RNs must complete.

    From the State's web site:

    The California Board of Registered Nursing adopted the following motion at its board meeting on February 6, 2004:

    "The following action supersedes and replaces the December 5, 2003, Board action related to Excelsior College:

    "Excelsior College graduates, like other out-of-state graduates, must meet the requirements set forth in California Business and Professions Code Section 2736, including supervised clinical practice concurrent with theory, in order to be eligible for examination and licensure as a California registered nurse. This eligibility requirement applies to students who enrolled at Excelsior on or after December 6, 2003."
