    A few year ago, I started the program; however you must be very disapline to study on your own with no teacher and clase room to go to.  For me it did not work.

    I was a traveling LPN. I bought the whole program, if you are a good self studier, it isnt that hard. Had to quit the program and move back to IL.( family issues) which doesn't except the program. Still have all the books and info if you're interested.

    Hi,  I purchased the Rue Education program and find that if I study the material in the workbooks and highlight the material  in  the text books, I  have been able to pass the tests.  The hardest thing is to discipline yourself to study on a regular basis.  I have finished a course in as little as a  month  and also taken 6 months to finish another.  I have also looked up course content on the web, just to get a little  extra  reading in.   I find  the  service representatives at Rue extremely helpful.   Hopefully  The College Network has the same thing.   I do  plan on taking Microbiology at my local community college because I feel it will be easier, rather than trying to do it through home study.  I hope that helps you.  Marijo

     I was in contact with RUE, College Network at a point in time. I finally just applied to Excelsior. There is a forum at allnurses.com, many ppl regret throwing away money. My problem with Excelsior (I just found out), ASN & AAS degress are not eligible for financial aid (Fafsa). Now I know why ppl are going through RUE and College Network. So, my question is: RUE, is it affordable???

    I just enrolled in RUE.  It was $200 down and $142 a month which I find very affordable.  I haven't received any books yet, but the courses you have to take all seemed reasonable i. e. no world religion on the list.  Hope this helps.  I have been an LPN for 20 years.   Thinking there will be some of them I can breeze through!

    I have been enrolled in this program for awhile now. I love the fact that I can study at my own pace it fits when you work FT and have a family. Sociology was the hardest for me I really had to push myself. I just did not find it interesting enough to keep my attention. I think this was one of the times I wish I had a study buddy to push me a little harder.

    Re: how is the excelsior college lpn to rn program?

    I am very interested in the college network. Does anyone know if the Board of Nursing in Massachusetts accepts this program at excelsior?  I don't want to get through with the program and try to take my boards and them tell me that they will not accept my education.

    Re: how is the excelsior college lpn to rn program?

    I brought the books in October of last year and have not been able to discipline myself to study, if anyone would be interested in starting a study group I would be willing to join, in order to complete this program you need a little kick in the behind every once in a while.  As much as I want to be an RN that does not motivate me to want to study.  Any suggestions feel free to email me at goinsnicole@hotmail.com
