The College Network and Excelsior


I am an LPN that signed up with The College Network.I found out they told me lots of lies to get me enrolled. I'm sorta discouraged and don't know if I should really do it.My friend is an RN and she said hospitals want you to have a collge degree to get hired at hospitals. Is College Network/Eccel College a real college?Someone else told me you can't advance in hospitals with this kind of degree. Is this true?

If you just signed your contract with The College Network, you can cancel. If it's been more than a few days, you're stuck. I always tell people that the best revenge on getting sucked into paying all that extra money is to be successful with EC's program. Yes, Excelsior College (EC) is a real college. The College Network, however, is not affiliated with EC in any way, nor is it a college.

You can visit EC's website here: Excelsior College -

You are going to pay the College Network either way, so you might as well give the program a go. There are plenty of EC students and grads in this forum (myself included) who are successful. I have gone far as an EC graduate. Good luck.

P.S. I moved your post into its own thread, as your topic really didn't pertain to the thread in which you posted. :)
