    The difficulty of the CPNE is a relative term. Child birth is easy for some and "difficult" for others...the hardest part really is learning to control your nerves. What is asked of you to do is not difficult, it's what we do as nurses day in and day out. You have to take the time to learn it the way EC expects you to do it. Can that be difficult? Sure! Just like learning to drive a car, or swim for the first time. I think that those who do not put the time and effort into really studying or those who go in with the attitude of "I've been a nurse for X amount of years so i can do anything!" are the ones that make it difficult for themselves. I'd say if anything it's the most STRESSFUL thing I have done in my life but not "difficult!" =)

    Why did Georgetown deny you? Jerks.

    After I finish my MSN, I may consider some kind of NP ... I think that will be the LAST degree I have left in me, so I guess it had better be a DNP! lol

    They calculate over all GPA by every single class you have ever taken (which is fine) except if you FAILED a class they combine it with your RETAKE class for a GPA...so a few classes I failed back in 97, I retook in 2004... so basically if I had an F, then got a C in the class the combined total of the two is a D...so my overall GPA calculations should have been around a 3.4 or 3.5, and they said it was 2.99! =( oh well, I prefer Simmons better LOL...
