Overall Rating

Overall I love this school. Even though I am just getting started I have been treated like a am an important part of the school's "team". Being an adult learner I was nervous about starting school but Excelsior answered all of my questions and put me at ease. Now I am ready to go!


Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Overall Rating

I am taking online classes from home. I love it. The instructors stimulate discussion, and lead us to the most pertenant and latest in EBP. They stimulate learning by assisting to establish the bigger picture of the nursing profession and define a path for the future in nursing. The on line program is easy to use and the 24 hour support is great.
