Excelsior CPNE Workshop

Nursing Students Excelsior


Just wondering if anyone has taken the Excelsior workshop, and do you believe it gave you enough helpful instructions to pass the CPNE, or should I be scouting around for other workshops such as Sherri Taylors.

I took the official Excelsior workshop back in 2005. Don't know what it is like now, but it was great then. I would say it definitely factored into my passing the CPNE.


I have been trying to get an answer to this on this and other blogs w/out success. I called Excelsior and they did confirm that their workshop is more of a refresher of what you already should know, like a review session not a teaching workshop. Let me know if you get any answers

I'm planning to attend one in Albany in December. Visiting Albany in December is not the smartest idea. I know what the snow can be like there, but if everything goes as planned I should be eligible by then to sign up. I figure I should do whatever I can to prepare for the CPNE.

I have a family member that lives in Albany that I will be staying with, so that really helps me out with the cost.

Specializes in peds-trach/vent.

After going thru the study guide afew times, I took an excelsior workshop last november. it brought everything together for me. i dont think it really matters which workshop you take as long as you feel you are prepared for the cpne. i felt the excelsior one was really thorough as far as prep. i dont know if they were "teaching" anything but whatever you call it, i did learn a lot from them.:)
