Failed CPNRE twice!!!

Posted

Hi guys!? I graduated from Mohawk College practical nursing program earlier this year. And I just failed the CPNRE for the second time in a row!... ? I am feeling so sad about it asI thought I passed for sure! ?

I even took this online course that guarantees passing. That cost me $900 and there’s no refund either. ? The crazy thing is I felt more confident going in the second time and my mark was even worse than the first time! ? Please can anyone give me some advice for the third time around? I am feeling so nervous at this point. ?

Thank you Stacy. ? I used the CPNRE prep guides/practise tests. And I’ve heard about how they are changing the exam in 2022. That is hopeful for me even though it is two years away. I’m going to study really hard for the next time around. Any advice as to study materials?

Did you pass first try? This is my second time I failed. I only have one more try...

Congratulations! Both of my tests were different from each other. I took the first one in June and then the second one in December. Also the one I just took was very hard in the beginning with lots of questions like that I was not familiar with. (Like burn victim questions)

Yes my friend took hers in December and she says the same as you..I think now you know what to expect so just try to look into the areas that you were weak on and then focus on that to guide your studies..don’t over study..make a plan like 2 hours a day and once you feel ready, then you take the test..you can do it, just stay positive
