Excelsior seems to have lot of red tape associated with it. I am a non LPN considering doing EC route to getting an RN. I was wodnering who here has gone through the program and has suceeded in getting a RN licence. I called up the SBON and they said additonal classes must be taken. I wanted to get recomendations for this by people here.

Thank You

The only people I know that have used EC, were LPN's that bridged. They seemed happy with EC. Expensive though.

You would have to find out which courses are required by the board. Years ago when I did the EC program (Regents) in MO, the board required Ethics & A &P with a lab. Wasn't a problem for me as I'd completed a year & a half of an ADN program & already had it. I went ahead & completed the BSN (one could do that at the time) due to the fact that I had been in an accident in the middle of the semester of the ADN program locally & couldn't finish the semester. Even though I had great grades, the waiting period to get back in was a year so I went the EC route.

I've never regretted it & would highly recommend EC but be careful if you want to work in CA, KS (& there may be other states- back then it was only IL that wouldn't take them but you could endorse after 2 years).
