Let me explain about school...

So since I have been doing this back and forth back and forth crap for the past year here is what I have endeavored to begin.

Excelsior college and all its cracked up to be. Its a self paced Exam based program, with a HUGE Clinical Skills Exam ( 3 days ), which has a less than 30% pass rate on the first try. Then I have a 120 hour clinical preceptor ship at a local hospital, plus a few seriously graded Careplan/Case Study Exams all before I can sit for NCLEX-RN.

Most of you are nursing students and you may sit in a brick and mortar lecture hall, some of you may take hybrid classes. But as I am sure any of you nursing student already know one thing. NURSING SCHOOL IS ALL ABOUT SELF TEACHING!

Heck my LPN year was here's a power point, I am going to read it verbatim to you. Here's a disk with your skills on them, learn them. Then there is a HUGE test at the end of the topic and... yes its your whole grade.

So hey EC is just self paced. I have 10 "classes" aka exams to take. So if I don't procrastinate too much I could be ready for my NCLEX-RN in mid 2012. Because I hear the longest part is the 3-4 month wait for the CPNE ( Clinical Exam ).

I have textbook, study guides and a series of PowerPoint lectures, the Made Easy books and great study and note taking skills.

But I can sit here in my pj's, go to class when I need too and still work full time.

So there is the story. First exam will be by the end of February I hope. Of course I will keep you all posted.
