So I passed my CPNE on 3/25 and the only thing I had left was a&p 2, since I took a&p 1 at my community college with lab. Since Excelsior doesn't require the lab, I took the a&p without lab option. It took me 4 days to complete and let me tell you it was MUCH harder than I thought it would be. I have a strong backround, because I work in a teaching hospital on a cardiac floor, but even so this kicked my butt! I didn't want to take the excelsior exam because it was way too much info to cover on one test. If you have a pretty strong backround and you did well on your excelsior nursing exams, you should consider this course. I don't recommend doing it in 4 days, but I WANT to take my NCLEX as soon as possible and that was the last thing standing between me and my GN! Any questions please let me know.
