I need help!!!!!

Ok i read somewhere on this sight that you have to be an EMT to apply for the nursing degree.

Well I am about to get my EMT from methodist hopsital in dallas, just my EMT-B tho

I really want to become an RN badly, its my dream, and studying online would be so much easier than having to go sit in class, and it looks alot cheaper... So I was wondering...

Is it possible to become an RN after completeing all of the classes offered through exclusier (sp?) college, or is there something else required, and what classes exactly do I need to take here? I am so excited I found this online, any help please!

This program is a study aide for your degree. You still would have to enroll in Excelsior to get your BSN. But you could "test out" of a lot of credits before enrolling there. There is CLEP, and Dantes exams, and maybe Excelsior accepts them.If you check out Excelsior's webpage it is explained.You'd need to do clinical tesing through Excelsior.
For instance, I am getting my BSN through Thomas Edison State College in NJ. They only admit NJ RN's. I am studying with iStudty for a class, then I will take the Excelsior exam and transfer it to my school.it's been hard for me since I am not so well organized.
Good luck! I hope I was of assistance.

Do you have to get your BSN to get your RN?

No, you can get an RN through a diploma program, an RN through a associate program. the diploma you have to attend school but Im not sure if theres an Excelsior equivalent for Associates
