My last hurdle is the hardest one, the CPNE---scared to death; but I haven't come this far to freak out. I studied like a mad woman to finish quickly. Now I just have to figure out how in the world I'll pay for the thing (lol). I did get a scholarship from Excelsior though. That will help a lot.How many test have you completed through excelsior?

So, my total cost including the CPNE and all the practice exams, and the FCCA, and graduation fee is 3,450. Then after I subtract scholarships it won't even be that much. Well, I'll have to figure it up later; because I forgot I'll have to probably pay for plane tickets/hotel for the CPNE.what are the cost for excelsior?

PM me, I'll tell you what I have for your first exam, etc...That is great!!! I know you are excited to be almost done! How long did it take you? I am also planning on studying and getting it done as quickly as possible. Do you have all of your books and study material?.Last edit by sirI on Jan 15, '10

Piece of advice, take Health Safety asap. It's basically stuff from LPN school. You can pass it without even studying. The courses really don't get hard until you reach the ones titled "lifespan." They are pretty tough.
I went to Hinds CC

I have not been able to find a full time job. I have had some PRN gigs, but nothing stable. You have no idea how many times I heard: "Oh, we were looking for someone with at least 2-3 years exp." They have tons of jobs (descent paying) for RNs, but not much for LPNs.are you doing any workshops for your cpne
