Thanks for the advice. If I had known how Excelsior would come to be viewed I might have thought twice about it- I definitely don’t recommend it when people ask. Even though I graduated and was able to get licensed as a RN, I still have my complaints. I can’t say I completely regret it though- between working and having babies and going to school, it was the choice I made so I could be there for my kids.
I have been thinking about taking an ACLS class. I agree with you that it might be helpful in landing a job. I’m just cringing at forking over the money right now. We just moved and things are tight.
Glad I found this website. I was looking for a forum to discuss nurse related issues and I love what I see!
