    The exam covers everything in your basic education. It changes constantly.

    When I wrote there was a huge chunk on IV fluids. My friend wrote the exam in the session after me. She told me there was very little on IV fluids and a huge amount on peds.

    You know which areas you are weak in. Focus on that.

    Use the CPRNE book. Don't read too much into the question. The exam is based on minimum knowledge for entry.

    Thanks, I'm planning to write in may 2012. I hope it's a little easier then RN. I wrote RN once and didnt make it. So just wanted to write RPN first.

    Hi there,..,,I'm taking the Cprne next month January 2013 and I'm freaking out right now,.,I didn't read books in my preparations. I only take those practice exams that i have and the prep guide,. And if there's something that confused or something that I kinda forget from what I've learned then that's the time I used books or google., can you give me some tips, advice or anything that can help me to be more prepared and ready to face the exam,.,

    . What I observed during the exam was that after 2 and a half hour or pass 2 hours of the exam there's only one person who got up and left. By that, you can tell. I really thought that 4 hours is too much but it's not.

    Material could be on anything and don't forget everyone signs a confidential agreement not to discuss the exam

    The exam is changed every time. When I wrote there was a huge focus on IV fluids and peds. My co-worker wrote the exam date after mine and said her's focussed on ethics.

    You have to focus on what you percieve your weaknesses to be.

    Why do you think it will be easier than the RN version? The PN programme is basically the old diploma RN course.
