My CPNE Experience - page 3

The CPNE I brought my husband with me this time. We got to the Hilton across the street from the hospital at around 12:30 and settled in. I reviewed my flash cards and mnemonics and took a... Read More

    Congratulations Sue , we know how difficult that exam can be.Now on to the NCLEX: Study fast.......you don't want the BON to change the rules before you can get licensed...:chuckle:chuckle.....LOL. Just a little joke to add a little humor to what we are experiencing here in GA, and nationally for that matter. By the way what state will you be practicing in?

    You are seriously in the ONLY STATE that is 100% okay! LOL!! Can you imagine the NCSBN calling the NY BON and telling them they should ditch EC? "Ummm ... no." *click* LOL

    Okay, we're all moving in with Sue.

    Actually, the entire northeast is fine. They KNOW about NYS's rigorous Board of Regents.

    What astonishes me is that states with notoriously lousy schools are refusing to accept Excelsior, while NYS seriously has the strongest board of ed and regents in the nation. One of the BEST state college systems.

    Does anyone on any BON honestly believe that NEW YORK would knowingly turn out incompetent, unqualified people? It is such blatant political horse hockey.

    Hey Sue,

    I am seriously considering relocating to New York before the year is up. My half brothers and sisters are in Linden, East Orange and Newark NJ. They tell me that it is only about 45 minutes from Manhattan and just over an hour from Brooklyn. I will most likely stay with one of my sisters to help her out financially and to save money too. If GBON doesn't reconsider they are going to lose a lot of nurses (LPNs) and Paramedics. It is so ironic....I feel like my ancestors.....having to escape to the North to avoid oppression.

    When do you take your boards. The one thing I didn't like about New York was having to wait until your graduation date. I think that is mid or late September isn't it?

    Zimsaint, I don't have my ATT yet. I am guessing it'll be Sept/Oct.
    Newark is a subway ride away - Port Authority (PATH) runs what we called "The Tubes" back when dinosaurs still roamed the earth.

    Jersey isn't going to give anyone trouble, either.

    Linden is further south - I'm originally from Staten Island, and getting to NYC from Linden would be a PITA. The Oranges would require a train to the tubes.

    And it looks like Georgia will be losing a lot of fine, smart nurses. Way to shoot yourself in the foot, GA.
