My CPNE is scheduled the 1st of March in Madison, WI. After being an LPN for 20 years and working on the Excelsior Program off and on for the last ten years, I could not be more nervous and scared. But I'm studying and putting in the time and effort necessary. Put my mind is fully open to suggestions if anyone has a few good ones they would like to share. After 20 years of having to get RNs to help with my patients needs, it sure would be nice to be able to hang a unit of blood by summer time!!!!
