Passed cpne at grady!

  1. I am finally home after a long weekend in Atlanta to conquer the cpne beast! I can thankfully and happily say that I passed at Grady with no repeats. What a relief! Now to hit the sack and get some much needed rest. The CEs were fair and wanted you to pass, however you do need to be prepared and try not to let nerves get the best of you because no matter how well prepared you may think you are, if you allow your nerves to take over believe me they will. Good luck fellow testers and know it is doable. Prayers for all to successfully complete this excelsior journey where only WE truly understand what it's like.

    Thank you ladies, I do appreciate it and feel blessed to have made it. Very stressful weekend wether you are or not prepared, your nerves are still there lol! Luckily our CEs were pleasant and appeared to want you to succeed. But do know that they rotate weekends therefore who I may of had this last weekend might not be there on someone else's weekend.

    Awesome!! I did it in 2007 and was so mentally and physically exhausted I really couldn't appreciate my victory for days... but it's worth it!! Prepare for the boards, but know that they are "just another test" after surviving CPNE!!!!!

    Hi Jennifer27,
    CPNE is really really difficult to pass, so many many kudos to nursemami4. I took my CPNE in Madison Wisconsin over 2 yrs ago and passed. Only 2 passed, so here is my recommendation, for whatever it is worth to you. I would highly recommend Sheri Taylor's and ONLY her workshop in Atlanta. It is the best and I went to one other. She has an extremely high pass rate!!!!!!!! The online workshop is great to prepare before you get to Atlanta. I prepared for 2 months before taking the CPNE and I set up a patient's room like on Rob's video (utube). I also set up a lab in my home and practiced every single day!!!!!!!!!!!! Remember the "grid". Always go by the "grid", as I know I could not have passed without one and everyone at my CPNE who did not have a grid, failed the weekend!! I hope I have helped you and not discouraged you!!! It is hard but you can succeed with preparation!!
