big. sigh. of. relief...i can't hardly believe it!!!! as soon as i finished, walked out, got my "c" meaning oh-my-gosh-i-really-did-it!!!!!! and then i couldn't get to my car fast enough to call excelsior to see how long it would take to update and get on with the next step! so, tonight's project: background check. photo (leftover from lpn school =-) and writing a letter to my employer so they can cut me a check by friday to get my application process started. oh yeah, and gotta get crackin' on a&p or micro. not sure which one yet. hmmm...maybe i'll go take a bubble bath and enjoy the moment!!! thanks everyone for the well wishes, they worked!!!!!

yay! congrats jules!!!!!!!! :yeah:

call them up monday for your fcca. i got mine yesterday and working on it now. i also have one more class to complete, growth & development but i will do it after i pass the cpne. glad to know someone else is going through the same stuff i'm going through at the same time. i am so stressed that i break out. i never had this much pimples! :bugeyes:

anyway, maybe we can help each other out since were are going through this at the same time by becoming cpne buddy through e-mail/phone?

Juleslpn, how long has it taken you to get to this point? Thursday I take Repro and it's a lot of info that was covered. How did you make it through?

i just dug my heels in and went! i finished my nursing exams in 8 months or so and now am working on micro and a&p. just received my fcca yesterday and applied last week for the cpne. it wasn't easy, i had a book or notes in my hand constantly from the moment i started. but, if i can do it, believe me, it's doable--i work a full time job, a part time job and have 3 full time kids and 2 part time kids. you just gotta have faith in yourself and work hard. i used studygroup 101's notes to pack around and used every practice test i could find. good luck--you can do this!
