    Just a few weeks left of the FCCA and then off to study forthe CPNE. I am hoping to take the CPNEin June and the NCLEX by September. Letme know if you are in Florida and want to study for the CPNE or have recommendationsfor NCLEX prep. I also plan to take aCPNE prep class but have not decided which one to attend. One step at a time.

    I averaged one class per month studying at least 10 long hard days for each class. The first two exams were the hardest mostly because I wasnt used to the exam process and my study habits were rusty. I was a machine by the time LS 1-3 came and now I can taste the end coming. There is no easy way, just read the materials and take the exam. I wasted a lot of time up front trying to find a short cut and there isn't one. LOL Good luck! You can do it!

    I passed both FCCA final exams yesterday and am CPNE bound! All I can say is that the Care Plans Made Simple book saved my life. It really helped me understand how to apply the nursing process. Good luck everyone! You can do it!

    Any really, depends on your learning style. Some are very visual and broken down. But, now having passed the CPNE I would recommend the EC free email and phone in care plans on their site (6 total)...and also taking their Documentation and Care Plan conferences. I believe they should be incorporated into their program. I used all the PCS's from these classes to practice with physically in real time with my dummy and then family. The EC advisors are there for you. Utilize your weekly calls---invaluable! The required Mosby's Nursing DX book will be your bible. As you get your corrected Care Plans back, highlight the Dx and interventions in your book. You can tab your book and highlight for the CPNE---no writing or any other marks. BUT, please do check with your assigned version of the study guide as it changes.
