I found this website called Bay College and it guarantees 100% passing the CPNRE. It cost $1000 but it’s 14 sessions long two times a week. They offer it online which is good because I live far from there. I called and left a message. I really need to pass the third time and I feel like this would be worth it.

Please do not apply or use this program! It is a complete SCAM. I paid and failed my first attempt. I made a post on what I did to pass and I really just studied on my own the second time. You can see a tutor for guidance but majority of them are going to teach you the same thing they teach everyone or overwhelm your brain with too much information. Heres a link to my post of how I was successful on the 2nd attempt. I strongly recommend you take a read.

Truthfully I only used my Saunders textbook and the online program that comes with the book! Behind the cover is a code and a website you can access and use to study. Its the BEST study program that you can do on your own. Best of luck!

Thank you for the advice!!! I bought Mosby's practise guide on amazon a week ago. Is that one good enough to study from? I some people have different preferences between he two and then I choose moseys because it was listed as amazons best seller for CPNRE test review.

Well I emailed her and she replied back. She sounds very nice. I asked her if she can do the course online with me because I live too far away from Toronto. I hope she can do an online class with me.

Perhaps online/Skype classes are not working for you and you need a sit in instructor?

You mentioned you did the cpnre prep guides, did you mark yourself in each section? How did you perform? Try to get 80% on each test before you book your appointment.

I mainly used mosbeys prep guide and then did the cpnre prep guides. I jumped straight into the quizzes, I didn't bother reading the chapters unless I performed badly on the practice tests. I would then read the rationale for each question regardless if I got it right or wrong.

Read each question very carefully, I felt a lot of the options were a giveaway.

What area did you not do well in? They send you a summary of how you did. If it's certain questions in 'fundamentals' then focus more on questions under that category

Take all the time you need, don't overdo it, you got this and good luck

You can get this book from public library for free! But it's also a wonderful resource to have as your own!

Mosbeys or Saunders. They're both great and it's just a preference. I used mosbeys and passed the first time. But I also watched YouTube video of common diseases and interventions etc.

There is a program that comes in the front of the Saunders book that i highly recommend. I am unsure if mosbys offers this. The program is what REALLY worked for me. It has assessments, quizzes, practice questions and truthfully when i went to another tutor this was the program she was using, and I decided to stop paying her and study myself. Hope this helps!

Do you know yet if you passed the third time? I just failed it twice and am on the same boat as you. Do you have any resources or options that you found helpful?

Katie, I was in the same boat. I found an instructor in Mississauga and she was super helpful. I passed on my second attempt, she gave me a lot of tips. Don’t worry

They will send you a mark report with your results if you fail. If you pass there won’t be any reports attached

Thank you and congrats on passing! I emailed her, so after meeting up with her you were able to pass the second time?
