Well, I just paid for my CPNE.
I am so nervous now. Just need to see when my actual test date is (I only signed up for the one in Lubbock), said I would be ready starting Jan 1 2013.
Anyone around Katy Texas that needs a study buddy?

When you receive a date does vary on where you are testing. The last person I heard of that applied to MPAC applied in August and got her date in November. If I recall correctly, her date is in January.
It only took me 24 hrs to get my date but I applied to NPAC. I hear SPAC takes 6 months just to get a date! It is all nursing grapevine rumor though (held true for me because I applied to NPAC and indeed got my date fast just as the grapevine said I would). SPAC is MUCH closer to me but there is no way I'm sitting on my thumbs for up to a year waiting to take the test. Plus their background check costs around $50!
I hear the Ec workshops aren't very helpful but I would recommend doing Lynn or Sheri's workshop. I'm doing Sheri's (online) and I can't tell you how much it has helped already (just been at it for a week). Sheri's CPNE pass rates are like 97% or something crazy. I'll take that over the 61% CPNE pass rate any day!
Also, be careful with Rob's stuff. I've heard it is really outdated so be SURE to compare his information with the 19th edition study guide. On the upside, doing that should help you memorize it better.
Good luck and keep us posted!
