Ok I finally got my act together and retook the CEN exam after letting it expire during the time I was a director or nursing. I know I was stupid. I'd been hearing the horror stories and about the changes in the exam, and I went in sure I wouldn't pass.
Well I was worried for nothing and I'm sure that most of you who haven't taken the exam for one reason or another, would find out that you were worried for nothing. There was nothing in the exam that I didn't deal with almost on a daily basis in the course of doing my job as an ER nurse.
So My comment to everyone, is to take a deep breath and just take the exam. Don't be araid of it. The biggest obstacle is feer of the exam and failing.
Plus I will say that once you pass, make sure the CEN doesn't expire.
