    I agree with Joseph. You may have to wait longer than you think for a CPNE date. I am scheduled for Albany April 13-15, 2012. I would print out the study guide and start reading it right away. You will have to memorize the Critical Elements, etc., and practice the Lab stations. I am 48 and have been an LPN since 1984. I have been studying every day without fail for the past 2 1/2 weeks. And I will continue to do so until my CPNE weekend. I wish you alot of success. I know you will do fine with your CPNE. If you want to email and or chat about the CPNE feel free to email me at: kidnurse1963@yahoo.com. Take care Terri

    I thought I was to old to do this. Thanks to the post from the older people, I feel better. I finished lpn school at 53 and started working as a school nurse. I have the oppurtunity to advance this career if I get my rn. This post really encouraged me. Currently studing for chronicity and am finding it hard to focus. Any tips would be helpful.

Just curious to know what your program will cost you.
