A test or two can be acceptable if it is part of an overall program that is approved by the board, as the ISU program is. It is the overall Excelsior program that is not recognized by the CA board, not individual tests that may be used in approved programs.

O ok... THANK YOU!

What i've heard is that CA does not accept Excelsior because they were not providing the reqd # of hours for clinicals... not sure how true this is...

In Kansas programs must provide a certain number of clinical hours to fulfill the requirements to sit for boards, therefore Excelsior grads are not able to sit for boards. California probably has a similar rule.

Just FYI, you can still get your license in KS if you work as an RN in another state for....can't remember the exact number...600 hours I think. I know, I did it.
