hi :) everyone,,,
Is this for real? I also tried the regents and was not happy at all. I finally got out of the contract. I am a little apprehensive about doing this Study-Smart. I am currently enrolled at a local community college doing the core_requisites for the ADN program. I work in the ER at the local hospital as an ER tech. The waiting list for the program is sooo long, and I AINT gettin any younger. LOL... Please let me know how well this study smart works....

RE: Future Nurse

regents has no contract. what did you have trouble getting out of? independent study is definitely not for everyone, but for some it is a god-send. I went the traditional route for a year and feel blessed to have this opportunity to dictate my own classes, study hours, study materials, study setting, and etc. do you have any questions about excelsior/regents that perhaps weren't answered adequately? Did you ever take a test through them? I can be contacted about excelsior at QusieQusie@aol.com. Please mention SOMETHING about being a nursing student in the memo section or I will delete it by error! Thanks.

I know QusieQusie also stated that you could contact her ref to Regents College exams. I also am a good contact. I have taken numerous exams through them. I am working on Nursing Concepts 2 now and then 4 more to go and I'll hopefully pass the clinical. Feel free to contact me for any questions. nursenanw@aol.com. Also, put info ref to nursing in subject section or I will delete it.

I am really confused about this whole thing.
I just sat down with a gentlemen or was for the college network. He offered the same thing.Is this program from that network?

RE: Future Nurse

go to the regent/excelsior college website to learn about these programs. Once you are very familiar with what you need to pass excelsior college's tests, then you can make informed decisions regarding any of the outside companies offers of assistance. THE TESTING AND DEGREE are only offered through excelsior. The other companies offer "help" through independent study that has perhaps more directed information. Most people do not go with these expensive outside companies. We just study very hard and take tests. The whole point of an independent program online is to work through the studying part independently. If you are capable of doing this alone, don't spend the extra thousands of dollars to do one of these programs. Try a couple tests on your own and if you can't make it that way, look for the outside help that they offer through istudysmart, rue, chancellor's, and a variety of others.

RE: Future Nurse

Hi, just wanted to let you know istudysmart is NOT a part of Excelsior(Regents)College. We produce study materials for their exams as well as CLEP and Dantes exams. We are the only company that allows you to buy courses without a contract. You may have enough knowledge and great test taking skills where you don't need to buy study materials, but if you have trouble knowing what to study from the Excelsior outline we can help. Our toll-free number is 800-737-2222. Let us know if you have questions. There is no pressure to buy anything.

RE: Future Nurse

ya know what's scarry???? yesterday there was some messages on here from someone dogging this study program...in fact, there were a few messages from the same person(in different subjects), and today they're gone. it's a little scarry to think someone is filtering out what is being reported on here. positive or negative feedback should remain, it makes me think they're trying to cover things up, I've been wondering why there hasn't been any messages posted in the nursing 3,4,or 5 catagories...do they not make it that far? do they decide they can take the test w/out using istudysmart.com????
