Delaware Board of Nursing Changes
On March 14, a letter was received from the Delaware Board of Nursing's executive director stating that the Board made a decision at their January 2013 meeting to only license Excelsior graduates by examination if they had applied for licensure prior to January 31, 2013. This action by the Board was taken without any prior notice to Excelsior College or an opportunity for representatives from the College to address the Board.
In the letter, the executive director also indicated that
It is important to note that the decision to change their long standing practice of licensing our graduates is not based on any changes to our program or the performance of our graduates.
We are strenuously advocating for the ability of our graduates to be licensed in Delaware.
