Excelsior College nursing programs are designed in accordance with the requirements for Registered Nurse programs in New York State. The associate degree programs prepare students for the NCLEX-RN examination and for practice in the United States. Excelsior College graduates who meet eligibility requirements are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN in New York State. Excelsior College graduates who meet eligibility requirements are eligible for licensure in New York State and other states, as well. Individuals convicted of felonies or certain misdemeanors or those with a history of substance abuse may not be eligible for licensure. Our graduates are eligible for licensure in most other states by examination or endorsement. However, states have different requirements for pre-licensure education; students are responsible for determining the legal criteria for licensure in the state where they wish to practice. Some states have special licensure requirements for our graduates. Graduation from a registered and accredited program does not guarantee eligibility for licensure; students may also need to meet other requirements regarding age, high school graduation, type of education, and so forth. If the state in which you wish to be licensed is part of the national compact for licensure, ask about those specific requirements. Excelsior College graduates who are licensed as RNs in one state may be employed as RNs by Veterans Administration Institutions or other federal facilities anywhere in the United States. * Individuals convicted of felonies or certain misdemeanors or individuals with a history of substance abuse may not be eligible for licensure or eligible to take the required performance examinations for the Excelsior College nursing degree.
