Does anyone know what happened to the Excelsior College Journals on their Nursing Discussion Board site? This was an important resource for those preparing for the CPNE!

Thanks!

Hmmm, no clue. That is pretty weird, though. Have you asked any faculty about it?

I graduated on 1/20, so I am unable to log into the communities anymore but noticed that they were gone almost a week ago while I was still able to log in. I would give EC a call and see if they have any info. Maybe they are in some kind of archiving project?

A few of us posted our journals here at allnurses, but you would need to do a search for them.

Good luck!

I am seeing some being posted to the main topic for CPNE, not specially a Jornal heading anymore. Didn't they just switch platforms, maybe they combined them all into one section? If you find out from EC, let us know :)

update on Excelsior journals!

nurse faculty replied:

"i believe the cpne journals have been removed due to misinformation

being written in them by students". maybe they can't monitor every post

and that's too bad. i feel like i'm being cheated out of an important resource

for preparing for the cpne. i'm not there yet, but always read them and i saved

several with good info...... including yours lunah!:bow:

haha, I wonder whose opinion it is that they contain misinformation. "oh look, here's a negative comment, it's not possibly true so let's shut it all down!"

I really don't understand their reasoning for getting rid of the Journals. They have a moderator on there for questions regarding the nursing exams, CPNE prep ,etc. It's not like they have an overwhelming amount of Journals to begin with! A large number of people just post something like "I Passed"! and never post a Journal. Maybe Excelsior Nursing students will start posting on the EC face book page or here on Allnurses EC page!....My mission that I choose to accept is to spread the word of continuing

EC Journals!...Wish me luck! Lol!;)

I never did post mine on the Excelsior website because I included a ton of details and even the names of my examiners, and I wasn't sure how that would fly with them (even though there was nothing negative). I would be happy to share mine with anyone interested, let me know your email and I will send it :-)

Maybe we could persuade the moderators here to give us a EC journals topic for posting of journals only, either by test post or file upload.??

Would love any info you would like to share!

Can you send me a private message on here? I am always happy to talk to someone coming up on the CPNE. It was an experience I will remember for the rest of my days, that's for sure, but it had a very happy ending for me and it is doable. If you are on Sheri's workshop Facebook page, my journal is also posted as a note there. I tested in Syracuse, NY last sept.
