    Guys, for everyone thinking that 3 tries is fair and all that ********, before 2005 you got 6 chances to pass the CRNE.

    Where did you hear that? I wrote in 1994 and it was three attempts then. Someone from my class failed three times and that was it for her. And there was none of this "Well, I'll just be an LPN then" business either.

    Some people probably shouldn't be practicing, which is one reason why they would have changed it. You may not agree, but 3 attempts IS fair. The CRNE tests basic nursing competencies. The majority of people do succeed within the 3 attempts.

    There are literally hundreds of posts that contain information on how to study for the exam. Have you read them? What applies for the CRNE will also apply for the CPNRE. I don't think we need another hundred posts rehashing the same stuff.

    There are far more suggestions than those in the various threads.

    "You must analyze where your weaknesses are. Do you have trouble determining what the question is actually asking? Do you have difficulty with multiple-choice questions? Do you struggle with English language comprehension? Is your theoretical knowledge weak? Your clinical knowledge? Are you struggling with therapeutic communication (which as we all know is NOT how people interact with each other in the real world)? By figuring out where you're falling down, you can then work on improving your examination-taking. When you do practice questions, read the rationale given for the correct responses so you can understand how CNA arrived at them. Sometimes it's not about what you know but how you apply it."

    Use the nursing process to gain insight into your problem areas.

    Assess: Look at the questions you get wrong on the practice exams. Read the rationales for the correct responses. Alter your thought processes so that you begin to think like a CNA examination developer.

    Diagnose: Figure out why you're falling short. You should be able to see where the problem lies once you do that assessment. You can't solve a problem until you know what it is.

    Plan: Develop a strategy for figuring out how to succeed next time.

    Implement: If you need more practice writing multiple choice exams, do that. If you need to improve your language comprehension, take a class. If you need to review certain parts of your clinical knowledge, do that. Practice speaking in that stilted and convoluted manner that colleges perceive as therapeutic. But don't keep doing the same thing expecting different results. The exam will be your evaluation.

    is there anyone who passed on their third attempt?
    i just failed my second, by two points. as many of you have felt, i am completely heart broken.
    the next attempt is my final. my last hope.
    i just need to know if there are others out there who failed their first two attempts and passed the third.
    i haven't been able to go through all the posts but is seems any who failed their first and second fail their third as well.

    Hey that is not true. I failed twice and passed in my third time. I was terrified to go the third time but at the same time I was relief and confident that I had done everything what I had to do and work harder than ever before I even try to attempt the Third Time.

    Trust yourself, regain your confidence, think positive, and find people who will motivate you to move forward.
    Reflect on what you need to improve, and think what you need to do to pass this exam ( you may need different approach/strategies) . In addition, Look through other postings in this website from other graduates what they have done to achieve their exam, there is a link in all of them, take them, take a little bit of everyone and make links, and find your own style, and their is a big possibility that you succeed in this exam.

    You can do it, I wish you all the best!!!Yes You can Pass the Third Time!!
