"More Team Work Than I Ever Imagined...
Being that I entered Excelsior College already a licensed practical nurse (practicing for 3 years) for the for the bridge program to become a registered nurse, I felt like I had a chip on my shoulder. I went in thinking, just get through the next year and then I will have so many more job opportunities open up to me. Well, I was surprised. I learned so much more than I ever imagined I would. I thought it was most interesting that one of my first assignments was a group project with some of my classmates. The group project not only taught me about things in Nursing that I didn't know, but it forced me to reach out to my professor and classmates in a way that I never imagined I would prior to signing up for online school" (Registered Nurse; 2013)

"Partake In Chat Sessions...
Take advantage of the chat feature even if you're not in need of help. You can help someone else and you'll more than likely learn something during the process." (Registered Nurse; 2013)
