"Excelsior College was a great experience, and it's a school that is under the University of State of New York umbrella, which means it's well respected in the education community. I don't regret attending this school and would recommend the school to everyone. The advisors and professors are very respectful. I was able to transfer my previous credits as well."

"I completed my BSN at Excelsior College in 2013 and am now pursuing my MSN there. Excelsior College is a National League for Nursing recognized Center for Excellence in Nursing Education and the high quality faculty they employ show it. My BSN greatly enhanced my knowledge of nursing and it has given me immediate promotional opportunity as well as increased income. I received excellent financial aid assistance in my BSN and I wish such aid existed for graduate nursing education. I reviewed a lot of online BSN and MSN programs before I chose Excelsior but the combination of quality faculty, excellent course offerings, diverse student body and workable clinical commitment made this the best choice for me to take while working full time as an RN."

"Tell us about your college experience.I apllied to Excelsior Colleges Associate of Nursing program because I was a single mom and worked full to part time. Already being an LPN, I didn't want to repeat a lot of classes and taking exams for college credit sounded good to me. I was nervous, having read many bad reviews, that the college is a "Scam" and that its a "Degree Mill". Heres what I found out. Its a lot of hard work to pass the final exam true, but guess what? They give you a complete road map to success and are there for you via telephone, email, and discussion board. I feel bad that the college gets a bad rap by people who were unsuccessful, its a wonderful program, and when I completed my courses, I could more quickly identify priority care needs and assessments patients would require than nurses who went to the full 2 year programs. If it Were a "Degree Mill" people would be complaining that they didn't get one. Makes sense, doesn't it?Would you get the same degree if you could start over?I would absolutely choose the ASN program again, in fact, Im continuing on with Excelsior to their RN-MSN program.What advice can you offer other students?Pick a degree path that is marketable."
