    7 down......one more to go, Yay!!!!

    That's great! Congrats! :yeah:Way to go! I would challenge it if you feel you did better. In school students would challenge test grades so why not EC? It wouldn't hurt to try.

    Excelsior CPNE

    I'm in the same boat as the both of you. I also failed my ADN program. It took me a while to get over my experience in nursing school because I harbored such bad feelings about nursing. All the wasted time, money but I feel I have another chance with EC. I've received so much encouragement and support from this site than I ever did my entire time in nursing school. Hopefully I'll be done with the program before the new year. Best of luck to both of you!:)

    How long did you wait

    I have to contact PF. I'm still waiting for them to mail my transcript to EC. Its been a month and still nothing.

    That's great. Now you have to pay an additional $10 to have your transcript mailed.
  6. I was hoping to have all of my nursing exams done by now but I've been stuck in a rut lately and haven't felt like studying. So far I've done 4 exams and I have 4 more to go before the FCCA and CPNE but I can't bring myself to start reading again. I do everything but study. I'm losing momentum and really need some advice on how to get over this hump/slump I'm in. Thanks all.

    That's what I thought too but they charge $15 to mail the study book even though you can download it. Oh well it's still cheaper than $300+ dollars.

    You still have to pay an additional $10 to have your transcripts mailed to Excelsior after you finish the course. So the total is $115.

    No you don't. You will get a hard copy in the mail but you can also download the book and start reading ASAP. Just go to the section My Courses and scroll down to Course Description and you should be able to download the file.

    FCCA update

    That's good news! I want to get this done by the end of summer.
  11. I'm also doing Excelsior after failing out of a brick and mortar school. I absolutely hated every minute of nursing school. I was so stressed out and the instructors were no help whatsoever. You pretty much had to teach yourself the material. Since doing EC my stress level is down and I can read and test at my own pace. I have learned so much from others on this site. The support here is amazing. Something I didn't get in a traditional school.

    I've read mixed reviews from others. I'm just using the recommended books. I can't afford to purchase any other study materials. I need to save every penny for the CPNE. Good luck on your exam!

    Out of shape, how can I prep for clinicals??

    Getting in shape is my New Year's resolution. But for now I'm enjoy every bite of this cheeseburger. :) But seriously invest in a good pair of nursing shoes. Makes all the difference in the world.
