No I haven't had any trouble. I contacted all the hospitals, including large teaching hospitals, and they happily accept Excelsior graduates, who were not LPNs when they enrolled into Excelsior's AD Nursing program. They know the program is hard and that it takes a lot of work. There are plenty of positions at hospitals, LTC, etc. for graduate nurses in central PA who are graduates of Excelsior College.
I have not graduated yet. I have completed all my nursing theory exams, and I am scheduled for the CPNE mid-August. The Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing recognizes Excelsior graduates, whether you were a traditional RN student, LPN, or whoever Excelsior accepts into the program.
