WHAT IS AN ECE?
Excelsior College Examination
An ECE is an Excelsior College Exam.
The American Council on Education’s College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT) has evaluated and recommended college credit for ECEs. Their nursing ECEs are currently the only nursing exams evaluated and recommended for credit by ACE CREDIT. Accepted for credit at hundreds of colleges and universities, ECEs can save you time and money compared to completing equivalent course work.
Excelsior College Examinations are administered internationally at select Pearson VUE test centers. You need not be an enrolled student in an Excelsior College degree program (unless you are pursuing an associate degree in nursing) to take an examination at a Pearson VUE test center.
