CPNE this weekend

  1. 4 It seems like yesterday when I failed my last semester of traditional school back in 2007. I was groping around trying to figure out should I give up on my dream. Then a wise "pixie" gave me some excellent advice to give Excelsior College a try. I have been at it ever since on and off. I should be nervous based on the horror stories I have read regarding the CPNE but I am not. I am just thankful to God for this opportunity. So many people have encouraged me throughout the years. I have decided to follow some of the best advice I have received. Be humble, have fun, and control your nerves. Lets not forget to practice practice practice. Pray for me ya'll this is it. I will post yay or nay by Monday

    Best of luck, you will do fantastic! I graduated from Excelsior College in 2002, and it was the best and only option for me. Getting through the program shows that you have discipline and dedication. I will send my prayers your way.

    Remember "much prayer, much power"! Yes, #1 Control Your Nerves!!!!! I can not emph. that enough! I passed no repeats back in 2008 in Racine, Wisconsin. If you have not already, find something that you can take with you to help calm you during your PCS. For me it was a F.R.O.G. watch (fully rely on God), for another "classmate", it was the smell of her mother's favorite perfume You would not beleive how much that simple watch helped me. God Bless you as you prep. to take your exam this weekend, may He go before you and prep. the way, may He bless you with favor in the eyes of your CA, CEs, patients, floor nurse, and whomever you meet during your exam. :-)

    @ nursingforever35

    Please do let us know. If nursing is in a person's heart, as it sounds like it is in yours, you will do well!! I would like to talk to you about Excelsior College if you wouldn't mind messaging me after you return from your CPNE. I am considering taking some courses there.
