OMG!

I didn't expect to hear this soon as I submitted application at end of June and received a letter maybe a week ago that they were backlogged and working on it. Before I sent in the app they told me it should be about "5 months" from the week that they receive it. Prior I had heard NY was usually about 4.5 months, but I knew some sites were closing and so on and figured it might be a popular time of year? And when I read yesterday on the Exelsior forum that they were currently scheduling in January for that location, well....

I'm scheduled for November 11-13 in Syracuse! Woo hoo! Now I need to get really serious here because that is about a month sooner than I had figured considering what everyone's been going through lately. I had requested that date because it's my mom's birthday, and I passed my last written exam on my (deceased) father's birthday.

OMG. I have a date. Now I know what true fear feels like!

Congrats! Best of luck to you on your CPNE. Study hard and it will all be worth it in the end.

I'm scheduled for September 23-25 in Amarillo. I'm really excited, but not feeling that scared yet, so when the reality of it finally hits I'm afraid I'll really go over the edge.

Good luck to you.

Where on the EC site do you find this? I was looking the other day and couldn't find any place where it might show up.

ok, click on myec, then log in. under the purple My Excelsior College headline on the right, click on 'course registration status and course completion information'. scroll down and there is where u will find cpne, and the date. it does not tell u the site. for some reason it also doesn't stay on there forever-it disappears after a while, even though u are still scheduled for it. below it is where it will show up when u have completed it. hope this helps!

Best of luck to you. Just commit the study guide to memory and practice at home/work all you can and you will do fine. I remember leaving my test site (in Racine, WI) and reflecting on the test and thinking I felt like I had just been in a play (I've never acted in a play in my life), but because I knew the study guide so well - I knew "their lines" and all I had to do was wait for my "cue" then say or perform "my lines". Take losts of deep breaths and try not to rush. Again, good luck

I passed in Syracuse in July. Everyone was really nice there. That is a great analogy...it really is like being in a play!!! Although I didn't even wait for my cue...i verbalized everything i was doing and why i was doing it just so there was no doubt . Good luck to you!!!
