I thought I would start a post for those of us getting close to the CPNE, like a place for ideas on what we need to gather, study materials and such. If the vetrans would chime in and let us know what worked for them that would be great. I'm just trying to get a head start so that when I pass my final 3 exams I can focus on the CPNE hardcore for 2 months and tackle that beast.
I've had the 18th edition of the Study Guide printed at Officemax a few moments ago for $44.
I've ordered the skills kit from EC with the simulation would and injection pad.
I've set up a few table stations in my spare room for my mock lab, I still need to throw together a dummy.
I've downloaded the CPNE application and looked it over to see what I need to get done in the next several weeks as far as immunizations and such.
I need to renew my CPR also.
I'm thinking of ordered the CPNE flashcards from EC.
I'm also going to sign up for Sheri Taylors Online CPNE prep once I finish all of my exams.
Still unsure about Robs's DVDs, I think I would do better with Sheri as my tool.
I need to order some white scrubs because all of mine are Green.
I need to order Mosbys Nursing Diagnosis and the Fundamentals text also.
I plan on testing in NPAC so I have been researching the sites here and trying to locate suitable hotel locations and plan out my flight options.
Ok everyone, chime in and let me know what I am missing or what worked for you
