Apr 15, '08I was enrolled in a traditional RN program and dropped out the 3rd semester. I am a CNA and have experience working in LTC (not my cup of tea), ED as a PCT, and clinical rotations from school (med surge, L&D, maternal/couplet, oncology, pediatrics, and more med surge). I completed a nurse externship in OHICU while enrolled in a traditional program. I am waiting to take my CPNE. They tell me possibly in August at the Chambersburg location. A very informative and supportive site.
Apr 15, '08I forgot to tell everyone that I enrolled in May 2006 and took my first exam in September 2006. I had to take Nursing Theory 1-7, Info Tech, and Dev. Psych. My General and Behavioral Psych from my traditional program could not take place of Dev. Psych. I sent in my CPNE application January 2008 and now I am waiting for my date.
