Locations of CPNE?
- 0May 30, '10 by china4momHello Everyone,
I know Excelsior has several locations you can go to for your CPNE weekend , can someone please tell me where they are? Is the CPNE a simlation lab or are you actually assigned a pt in the hospital?

The Clinical Performance in Nursing Exam sites are as follows:
Albany, Schenectady, Utica, Queens and Syracuse, New York
Plano, Lubbock and Amarillo, Texas
Atlanta, Lawrenceville, Riverdale and Savannah, Georgia
Madison, Janesville, Milwaukee and Racine, Wisconsin
Chambersburg and York, Pennsylvania
I've heard its simulation to ensure you can properly do the tasks but I've also read that some people had real pt's. Hope the locations help.

One part is done with actual patients, and you must write an implement a care plan as well as performed various assigned areas of care.
The second part is a simulated labratory where you perform the following skills: IV Push, SubQ/IM, IV piggyback, and a sterile wet-to-moise wound dressing change.
