i just uploaded all the required documents for the cpne and paid for it. how long can i wait to bug them for a date? i put all npac sites so hopefully i will receive a date quickly. i also put myself on a cancellation list.
wow i cannot believe this is it. i am getting nervous already just thinking about the cpne. i should really start reading section iv of the study guide.
oh one more thing. i got a rx for prn xanax 0.5mg (20 pills) from my doc after telling him about my upcoming cpne. i have never taken any kind of narcotic in my entire life and i am wondering when can i take the xanax to see how it will affect me? i also work 3-11 so what is the best time to take it because i don't want to look "loopy" when at work :d. i obviously don't want to find out on the day of the cpne. :d

I'm in the process of studying to take my CPNE in July. I have been working in the mental health and drug addiction rehabilitation for almost 9 years and just wanted to give you some advise on the xanax. It is a Benzodiazepine, which could slow your alertness and it could be addictive if it is mis-used. (I'm sorry to be forward but is my nursing side that is talking) I will recomend you to stick with deep breathing and other relaxation techniques. Good luck in your exam and keep practicing your AOC and labs. You will pass!!!
