Hey all, I haven't posted in awhile but wanted to let everyone know that I passed my CPNE at Mertier Hospital in Madison, WI September 13-15, 2013. It can be done !! I studied hard, read and broke down the study guide until I was dreaming CPNE and knowing it like I knew my social security number lol. Did all of the EC message center and phone PCS on the EPN. I also did weekly phone conferences with advisors and emailed them questions daily. I used Rob's CPNE items and I did Sheri's online workshop for about 6 months. They all helped me be successful. Control your nerves and perform at your exam with confidence and you will do fine. I used a grid and Rob's mnemonics and passed with no problem. I officially graduated with my ASN from EC 11/15/13 and now I'm waiting on my ATT to take my NCLEX-RN so my dreams are coming true. I also starting the RN-MSN in nursing education program at Western Governor's University in February 2014, but this could not all be possible without Excelsior College so keep at it and with hard work and determination it will all pay off. Good luck to everyone and you can do this !!!
