I am an Associate LPN, moved to another state, and they won't let me board for the Assoc RN, so I paid for the Excelsior program, and want to chip away at it. Problem is, I work for the Veteran's Administration, and once I have my RN, I won't have a job, since I am in an LPN position. Right now, jobs are good to hang on to. But one thing I would like to offer is that the books are updated repeatedly, so when you are ready to start one, call them and make sure you have the latest one. Oh, yes, and I had to take Religion too, it was the only thing that I didn't get with my degree.
Good luck to all of us "low paid nurses"!
