    Congrats @ jbeanmi! That is so awesome! Congrats, congrats, congrats!

    LOL @ big girl panties. I better put them on my CPNE packing list just in case.

    @KitkatPRN I recommend doing e-mails through the message center instead of calls. It can take weeks just to get a phone appt and my e-mail turn around time is usually 24 hours. I try to keep a notebook and send in questions weekly. Also, you will have it IN WRITING if something comes up.

    Now I'm off to practice my grids some more!

    Passed! It was very difficult but very doable if you can keep your nerves under contol. I took chancellors workshop in Indianapolis...the 5 day workshop. Everything I learned there is what I used to pass. Failed one lab...my very first one...due to nerves. Then passed the other 3 after I went in the hallway & calmed myself. Passed 2 PCS's Saturday then my repeat lab. Sunday morning passed the last PCS! Advice...practice practice practice! & go to a workshop...a MUST & worth every penny!

    Congratulations to you. I'm going to Madison in less than two weeks for my CPNE. I've been a LPN for about 20 years and the last ten of it I've been working on my bridge to RN through Excelsior. There are few things I've ever wanted personally and professionally the way I want this. I don't think I was this nervous on my wedding day!!! I'm scared to death. Any major pointers?

    I just got notification I am testing in Madison in July. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. This is my second attempt.
