So frustrated right now. I failed 1 of the fcca exams. I thought I nailed 498 but was sadly mistaken. I was hoping to send my cpne app in... but now I'm back another 8 weeks. I had my review with excelsior and still not sure where I went wrong.

cj dont feel bad I failed the assessment fcca and i know how you feel its a very confusing assessment because you have no feedback where you are going wrong, however I decided to start studying for my cpne now so that when im done maybe I can apply for a cancelation date. :)

I failed 498 too but passed 496. This stuff is hard to learn. I even bought studygroup101 to help and it really didn't help at all. I'm also frustrated because I just want to be CPNE bound. It's taken 2 years this month already. Hopefully we will both be successful this time. Good luck!

Brandi, it's the Focused Clinical Competency Assessment -- a two-part course that EC students must complete/pass before the CPNE. Those who have taken it are not permitted to discuss it based on EC's policies, and students who are currently enrolled can't discuss it either based on academic honesty policies. It's very hush-hush! We can only discuss it very generally here on the forum, see this for more info about that, and this is based on what I've heard directly from EC faculty: https://allnurses.com/excelsior-college-online/very-important-information-714112.html

I am right there with you. I was devistated. when I was taking it, I thought sure I had passed! I hate it that you can not see what you made. I am very frustrated at myself and they way this test was set up. I am on my second round and praying that I will pass it this time.

Hi there, I just took the FCCA 274A and scored 66.67% does anyone know if this may change, do they go back in and review your exam? It says to wait. For final grade, don't know what to do, am so disappointed in my self, first power went out while taking the exam, the the computer froze, throwing me off completely.
