What is the CPNE test?

  1. Hey everybody I was hoping somebody could tell me what the CPNE test is? I read about all of you having to take it, but have no clue what it is. Thank you so much!

    CPNE stands for Clinical Performance in Nursing Examination.

    It is the Big Mamma of all exams in the Excelsior College distance learning nursing program. It is the clinical performance exam which consists of two and a half grueling, nervewracking days of performing expected skills (and careplans) in various patient care situations ...in front of the instructors who pass or fail you. It is the culmination of your entire nursing program.

    Hope that helps.

    jnette,

    Thank you so much for your quick response! That sounds like an anxiety attack waiting to happen.

    Looks like Nurse "Wretched" as Jack Nicholson called her in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest". Haven't seen the movie in years but that's who she looks like to me.
