I don't get it, why are they requiring RNs who were previously LVNs to have experience as RNs. Geez Louise LVNs are nurses too. As a LVN I get my OWN patient load in the hospital. I can hang blood in CA. I only call the RN if I have an IV antibiotic or need the initial assessment of the new admit. I take over afterwards. So I don't see how a new RN would need RN experience. It's a joke!
Regarding Excelsior, I'm going through with it because I'm moving either to Florida or Arizona and they accept Excelsior. CA may or may not license me but I really don't care. They have a lot to learn anyway. Good Luck to all
