When to take CRPNE
- 0Mar 30, '12 by crosshopeHey guys. So I'm currently finishing my first year of the RPN program from my local college.
I've been searching up CPNRE and all that stuff on the internet.
I found out that you can take the CPNRE during January / May / September.
I'm going to graduate next year at the end of April - May.
Now my question is, do newly graduates / about to graduate students of the RPN program usually register for the May exam or the September exam?
I'm looking forward from hearing from you guys. Thanks in advance.

The knowledge is still fresh. I graduated in October and had to wait until January.We had wanted to write in September because our final placement were finished the week before the September exam date but some authority wouldn't let us.
My entire class wrote at the same time, I don't think we even thought about deferring the exam.
Employers want you to have written as soon as possible. They also know that if you graduate at the end of May you won't have a chance to write until September and they expect you to be writing then.
