    Congrats on your accomplishment Ericka!!! Thank you for taking the time post your sucess here. It is so encouraging for those of us still swimming in books and content guides I just passed LS1 today and was a bit wiped out after the exam and all I can think about is..3 more exams...and that darn HUGE CPNE. The examiner at Pearson Vue said, "It will be just like coming home when you come to take your boards here!" I can't wait for that day! WAY TO GO!!!!

    I had put off doing Excelsior for over a year. I had heard so many horrible stories about the CPNE, then I found Allnurses distant learning forum. It helped me to see that people do pass it. So only people here really understand the long haul. Yes, when I took my NCLEX, the ladies from Pearson Vue were cheering me on. They know me after over a year of going there.

    Can I ask how long you were an LPN before you started Excelsior?

    I took all of my Excelsior exams and the NCLEX at the same testing center. The testing center staff were my biggest fans. :heartbeat

    I sure am changing my name to Erikadawn RN, as soon as I figure out how too. I was a Lpn for 3 years. I took my Lpn boards on February 18, 2008.
