    No, it's not. You just really need to have those critical elements down pat.

    What I do hope to see one day soon, though, is that if and when EC recognizes that a CE was partly responsible for the inadvertent failure of a student (in the case of Bill's first account of his CPNE experience), the powers-that-be would reverse the failure to a pass instead of simply allowing a free retest. This retest, in my opinion (aka nursing judgment), only places undue added stress to an already stressful experience. This is, after all, one of the areas that we are taught and asked to address when formulating our patient care plans. Not only that, only the exam itself was free; not the expenses associated with traveling and lodging for a second experience.

    I hope that one day they Excelsior does this too!!! Not only would that take the weight off the shoulders of the potential "CPNE" repeater, but it would decrease the wait time for people waiting on their first/hopefully only attempt.
