    Missnurse- of all the CPNE sites, I've heard the most good things about SRMC and Racine. The one I've heard the worst things about is Plano. How are you coming along on your courses?

    Opalm- aren't you doing your CPNE soon? If so, good luck to you! You can do it!

    Happynproud- I am overjoyed!!! I am still doing the happy dance...lol. Where are you taking yours? PM me your email addy if you need some study materials.

    I posted my experience at the rnstudygroup site if anybody wants the details of how it went. Beware: it's a very long post...lol.

    I'm back at studying for the pathophys again. I can't wait to get that exam out of the way! But after doing the CPNE, one tends to feel that the sky is the limit...lol.

    Thanks to all of you again for the congrats! It makes me feel so good to get those cyber pats on the back.

    Hey, thanks so much for asking-it's wild to know there are other people out there interested in what you're doing, and cheering you along! About to take nc3, i only have the nursing exams to do-hope to kick them out asap-currently out on disability so i try to spend as much time as poss studying everyday...and as long as the kids are safe and fed, the rest of the house is up to the s.o.!

    tell me what web site u posted your experience!
    again congrats!:hatparty:

    WOW! Congrats! I have been looking at this websitefor a while and have not seen anything pertaining to the CPNE! That is a true accomplishment. I too took mine in Atlanta, and it was a good experience, unlike the time before that in Dallas. (That was BAD, and not just because I didn't pass). Good luck on your RN, I have been now for 6 years.

    Quote from lgflamini

    You can take the CPNE when you're within 9 credit hrs of finishing your gen eds, and when all the NCs are done. You might be able to take it sooner than you think. Keep taking the courses if you don't get a date within 3 months of your CPNE letter- but if you only have 3 months or less to wait, concentrate on the CPNE only. The study guide is huge, and it covers a lot of material.
    I'm hoping to get this last NC course done by the end of June. I was hoping for a late September or October test date. We'll see what happens.

    Thanks, Jnette! That's good to know (about the NCLEX vs. the CPNE). I hope to be taking it at the end of June. (Better get back to studying for that pathophys. exam). I can't wait to be done with this round of school...lol.
