    Good morning! I'm a new user and I have noticed a comment that says outside entities i.e. TCN, Chancellor, etc are not needed to CLEP out of exams. My question is: How so is it possible? Or is just being registered with Excelsior beneficial? I have just applied with Excelsior and have Chancellor ringing my phone off the hook trying to get me to purchase their study material... I am extremely nervous with ALL of this as I have RECENTLY had a Horendous experience with another school that wasn't even online. ANY & ALL comments are welcomed. I REALLY am hoping to obtain my RN within the next year.. I just don't have the flexibilty in my schedule to go on campus with working Full-time and being a single parent of two small children. I have been an LPN since '03 & with the economy, that's not making it anymore. Once again. PLEASE HELPPP!!!!. Thanks again.
