Excelsior Nursing Degrees and
California Requirements


This notice is to inform you about changes that may affect you in regard to pursuing your ADN (ASN) Degree from Excelsior College.

The California Board of Registered Nursing voted to restrict the eligibility of Excelsior College graduates for licensure as RNs in the state. This affects all students who enroll in Excelsior College's School of Nursing on or after December 6, 2003. Because of this decision, Excelsior College will not encourage persons seeking to practice as RNs in California to enroll in their ADN program.

Although this is information from Excelsior and the California BRN, we feel it is important to be sure you, as a registrant of iStudySmart.com, are aware of these changes.

Please be advised that you should check with your advisor at Excelsior College for complete information. 1-888-647-2388.

If you are a student pursuing your ADN, and you are NOT planning to get a degree from Excelsior, but are getting your degree from a local college or university, you can still get courses from iStudySmart.com. You need to check with your admissions office to see what courses they will accept. Call your Educational Consultant at iStudySmart.com for additional help. 1-800-737-2222.
