Hi,im a new member here and i just received my eligibility to take the Cpnre. As im not yet confident to take the exam im planning to write the cpnre on september or january 2012. The exam blueprint on jan 2012 will be new as it was written online that new Blueprint arose from a comprehensive review of entry-level competencies required of practical nurses beginning to practise in the year 2012. From january 2012 the exam would consist of 180-200 questions compared to 230-250 questions for the last 5years. The percentage of questions changed to a small percent too. Im an IEN and i havent had any prep guide yet,and havent read the Compendium standards and strategies so i would like to have a first base knowledge regarding the changes. What would be the difference if i write the september exam or the jan 2012?
Thank you. I hope i would be enlighten with this matter.
