    Just go believing you will pass!!! I'm sure you're prepared, but like I said before, the anxiety level is out of this world Calm yourself down! Whatever you need to do to accomplish that within legal boundaries, do it
    You probably worked more on the things that caused you to fail and you have the advantage of knowing what you're getting into... no element of surprise for you! That's a HUGE advantage. Slow down if you have to, take a break if you have to, keep focused on what you're doing and what EC wants to see. Just work hard on doing things THEIR way... at the end of the day, that will be all that matters. You will have that paper that says PASS and can move on with your life.
    I don't know where you're spiritually, but I will be praying for you throughout the weekend next week. Please, let me know how you do... I'm excited already to see your post that will say PASSED IN GA!!!
    Feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions about Grady that you think I might be able to answer.

    Blessings,
    Claudia

    congrats from a may first time grady passer,we are now grady alumns.
    I know how that place is and as you said i don't think it would have mattered where i was, but the staff were very nice. You have to go in believing you will pass but being careful and flexible. My hands shook like a leaf so badly that i had a hard time putting the syringe on the hub. Have never shaken like that in life, ran out of time, allowed a staff person to rush me, was interrupted by respitory therapist, hospital shut down the computers while i was going through charts, and yet I passed. You have to know those elements better than your name because you may experience a level of nerves that you've never experienced before. Be familiar with your diagnosis book before you go. Have some alternate diagnosis ready. I left my 3rd ed book in the children's hospital, and had to use a 2nd ed book that was on the floor, it didn't have the diagnosis that i would have normally used for the situation, had to pick another and go with it and had to not get flustered and waste time about it. Be flexible, be confident, be focused, be prepared, be positive, more people pass than fail, see yourself as a passer before you get there, then go get it.

    First off.....congratulations Claudia! Curious...did you take a workshop and if so, which workshop did you attend? Ive just started studying the CPNE and feel so confused about where to start. I've been reading the study guide but OMG...it's so much to digest! Thank you for sharing your experience.

    Hi RTFisher!I felt exactly the same way with the SG until a took Sheri Taylor's online workshop. I couldn't afford to travel to Atlanta for the hands on workshop, but I like to study on my own anyway, so the online one was perfect for me. It was definitely a determinant factor in my passing the first time. Check it out at cpneworkshop.comBlessings to you as you prepare and pass this monster exam!ClaudiaPS: another great source of info was a Facebook group called "Let's Conquer the Beast"... Check it out. Many people there are on the EC board and are also former students of Sheri's (she and Greg - her assistant - are very active in that group giving tips and answering questions)

    i also took sheri's workshop online, helped me big time, i also did robs cpne, i used his mnemonics and tweaked them a bit. I visited sheri's after i passed, she had me answering questions for her students and gave me this great glass for passing. Her videos were great for the lab section, i don't think i would have passed lab without her.

    CMLPN now RN thank you for the advice! I'm currently living in Japan (husband is stationed here) and I was very curious about the online workshop but felt nervous about it. It would cost me a small fortune to travel all the way to Atlanta for Sherri Taylors workshop. I think I will try it! Thank you again!

    You're so welcome!I wouldn't spend any money on travel expenses just to take the workshop. The online version will give the confidence you need
