It's actually cheaper for me to go through achieve test prep. Im a recently licensed LPN so I only have 8 classes total. Excelsior quoted me 10k. From what I was told achieve, rue,chancellor are publishing company that gives you the material to pass the classes,they also do a 5 day CPNE prep. You enroll with excelsior to take the nursing classes and you are also awarded your degree through them. Achieve has a pass rate of 94% while excelsior has 64%. Has anyone tried either of these programs with any success?
