    Just like any course of study, it's not going to be easy. Just follow the program. Use the study guides for textbook and study direction. It is all self paced so you will need to be disciplined in your study time. It's attainable, but with a lot of effort on your part. If you apply yourself, you will pass with no problem.

    Best of luck.

    It is hard ... most things that are worth it often are. But -- it can be done! Welcome to the madness!

    It's Nursing School. You are already a nurse and know the basics. I really enjoyed most nursing concepts in the old curriculum and I'm sure the new curriculum is the same but broken down differently. I started taking my exams in November and was determined to finish. Scheduling the exam was actually what motivated me to study, but that is what worked for me!! In 5 months I took 7 exams, two were pre-req's. You can do it. Best of luck and just start studying. Here I am now waiting for my CPNE date!! You'll be there too.
