No problem!! I know what you mean, it took me a little bit to start on the EC program, I'm working on several degrees and have lots of opportunities with my current licensure, and then you know..life does its thing! :spin:
I am an LPN at present, as a matter of fact, my ex-husband was military-- so I got the LPN just so I could do the EC program, lol...and to see if I really wanted to pursue nursing. So far, none of the exams are particularly hard. I've taken 2 of them so far, I'm supposed to take NC4 next week and then i'll have: NC5, NC6 and foundations and the CPNE. I ope to finish them all within the next two months and then wait wait wait for the CPNE.
It helps that I've been a fairly advanced practice LPN for a few years too, but when I study I always learn something new (which is why I love nursing) I've used college network guides, practices tests and my textbooks from my brick and mortar BSN program. Your best resource would be the practice tests and excelsior forums where students share study materials gratis. I have a few EC peers who shelled out an arm and a leg for college network guides. They are useful though, but rather than get them from the source, I'd try EBAY.
I will be located on a Oahu here in the next week or so as I've taken a travel assignment there. I've been lurking on Allnurses for awhile, but just recently started posting, I'm very bad at it, I didn't know how to reply to your "thanks" message from my profile....are you a nurse? I think its a great move to do EC, especially for military...nursing programs
and transfer credits are pretty hit and miss!
