NPACers:

Has 14 years experience.

Hey all!

Just sent in my CPNE application with all attachments. I will post time frames, location info, lodging, road conditions and stuff on this thread.

I asked for any location in NPAC with 3 days notice. I am so ready to be done with school and my LTC/sub-acute job. I live south of Boston, MA so anywhere in New York State or the PA location is not too far.

Chime in with your waiting times, dates, etc.

Maureen,

I don't live near you, but wanted to congrat you with being this far along in the game. I hope to be in your shoes sometime in Feb. Good Luck with the studying. Traci

congrats on getting all that in. i found that to be a all day job...i hope you are able to get a date rather fast. i am finding that the longer i wait the madder i get...that makes this red headed cajun unstable so i'm trying to control myself...lol

i hope you get your date soon...

Uploaded my application and supporting documents at 2p, 11/07/08. At 8p I checked MyEC and the message was that they had accepted all of my documents except the CPR card because I forgot to include the back of my CPR card where my signature is located. (DUH!!) Uploaded that right away and the message displayed is "In Review". I'll check on Monday and hope that is all set. I will keep all future NPACers up to date in my waiting game, maybe it will help someone to plan their life around all of this waiting.

Congrats on getting on the waiting list:yeah::yeah::yeah:when i applied, i wasnt really able to study much untill i had a date, got my date 7weeks to the day, i also went npac and picked utica, which was great :up::up::up:,donna

I applied Aug 14th and got my date about 2 weeks ago. I waited about 3 months before I called to make sure I was on the cancellation list (some people in my study group found there was an error with that) so when I called, they offered me a date right then.. I was like "uuuuuuuuuuuuhhhhh.. sure I'll take it" but have since bitten my nails to a stub.. One day I'm ready, the next day I am not haha..

ChangeofPace, thanx for the response. When is your date? I will likely start haunting them by January 1st. I so want to quit my job but I need the OT that working all of the holidays will bring. I can't be out of work (for financial reasons) for much more than a month. Also, my bday is Feb 9th and I would have to renew my LPN license at that time. Just another few hundred bucks out the door!!!!

I test Jan 5, 6 and 7 (weekday option) in Utica :uhoh21:

I started studying back in August and really cracked down this past month. I know myself and I know I needed at least 3 months to study (I was overwhelmed at first with the study guide).. I ended up getting 4.5 total by the time my date comes.

Good luck to you!

Hey, I missed this!

Well done!

Initial NPAC application 12/31/07, first date offered end of April, took end of May, failed, retested and passed first weekend in August.

So I uploaded the back of my CPR card and it was "in review" all w/e. On Monday, they posted that it was the FRONT of the card was missing. Posted that and got "back of the card was missing". Did this routine a few times before it dawned on me to copy the copies onto one page and upload.:banghead: Mission accomplished!!! Silly mistake on my part causing all sorts of anxieties that I don't need. Hope this helps someone in the future.

HELLO NPACers!!!

Anyone going to CPNE in the next few weeks? Perhaps you NC Girl?

I finally got my application uploaded this weekend, took my husband and I (well to be honest more hubby than me) most of the weekend to to do it. Lesson learned here is if you have dial up-- go with a gif file, cause jpeg takes hours to upload.

My documents are under review, hopefully there won't be any snags with that. I'm testing in NPAC region, any of the sites, hoping for a date in the spring. I'll keep everyone posted on the progress.

My study guide was printed out friday, now all I have to do is dig in and study. Seems like there are several of us in the homestretch here, hopefully we can keep each other going through all this.

I applied to npac on march 3, application accepted on march 5th, i got my date on may 14th, and i took and passed my test on august 22-24 in albany med. Goodluck

Anybody know what month that EC is scheduling now? I applied Oct 01, 2008.

I spoke with NPAC this morning. I applied the first week of NOV 2008 and I was told that she is booking May and June. I hope that is the worst case scenario. March would be good. I will keep you posted.

Maureen

If you are willing to take a cancellation date you WILL get a closer date.

I'm willing to take a 2 week notice cancelation date. Anytime after Jan 1.

They called me today for Dec 5th......................but I'm not taking it. I have my last EC online conference untill Dec 26th. If I went, I would fail right now.

The caller from EC thought that my ready date was Nov 1st not Jan 1st-she miss-read it.

I would like to test in Jan or Feb.

Really? Perhaps you can call back and catch someone else? When I had called, she said she was onto Aug and that's why she was able to give me a date..
