Hey guys! I'm writing the CPNRE in a few days and I just wanted to create an updated CPNRE forum for 2018. I've been studying the 4th and 5th prep guide and took the predictor test (disappointing... Read More

    I took the exam on June 30th. I had only 2 weeks of review because I am currently working at the same time. I have high hopes because I am a nurse with years of experience back in the Ph. But anxiety got the best out of me and got me worried that I might fail the exam. I just received the letter today. I PASSED. So guys, my tips to you. Pray and be confident! *Took the exam in Mississauga

    I unfortunately didnt pass. This I cant believe.. i'm not entirely crushed because I studied my ass off! I paid for a course in toronto, bought the books, met up with my girlfriends that also wrote. My friend failed the first time but the test isn't even hard, theres no math. Yes a little tricky, but i'm really surprised here guys.. I'm not spending money on a course again, not really sure what to do. Any words of wisdom?

    I'm so sorry that really sucks. It's weird because you prepared so much... the exam really wasn't that hard. I would recommend going over the prep guides and buy the predictor test. Read all the rationales and understand why the correct answer is the right one. I only studied for two days and did both those things. I found the cpnre really similar to the prep guides and predictor test and even had questions that were the exact same. Once I understood the answer they were looking for I was confident. Review ADPIE, nursing diagnosis, ABCs, and therapeutic nurse client relationships. I'm confident you'll pass it the second time around.

    Also if I'm not mistaken they will tell you the areas you struggled In. So make sure to really review those areas.

    also... ASSESS UNLESS IN DISTRESS. you're a nurse, get your assessments before calling the doctor or doing anything else.. ADPIE. Unless of course they need immediate intervention.

    I even did the predictor test the night before and got 77% I feel it was because I went back and changed a few answers. I shouldn't of done that. But yes, I will review the areas and get a bit more guidance from a tutor. The saunders cue cards worked really well because they offered a lot of practice questions which I did every chance I got. I was overly prepared, woke up early the day of, had a big breakfast etc. I studied for months.. lol

    One friend said this one was easier and that some of them are harder then this. But I feel like in terms of difficulty the test stays the same, content might change. I had zero math, lab values or medication questions. Mainly maternity and mental health. Idk guys! Pray for me!

    I'm sorry to hear. I found that studying the rationales in the prep guides 4th and 5th edition and using ADPIE and ABCs is what really helped me. I also really took my time, I only had 15 minutes remaining at the end of the exam. I wish you luck on your second attempt! I'd say focus more on the rationales than the questions themselves. You'll have an easier time rationalizing the questions on the exam.

    I found the exam extremely similar to the prep guides. If you send me your email I can send you all 5 editions. I find getting uworld a bit pointless since only 15% of the exam or so was knowledge based (side effects of drugs, symptoms of certain diseases)... it really wasn't that hard at all. A lot of "what would you do" theory type questions and communication things (how to respond to a patient who doesn't want to live anymore). Honestly walking out of there I don't feel like I could have done much better if I studied more. I think you'll be okay if you just study the prep guides and understand the questions (read the rationales) and know how to answer those type of questions. If you want a bit more you can also buy the predictor test (some questions were the exact same on the cpnre). IT was helpful, and tells you how likely you are to pass the CPNRE.
    Hello, Please can you send me the prep guide. I am also preparing for CPRNE for september wi ndow and I am so anxious. My email is teeyus_2003@yahoo.com thank you
