Now I'm Paralyzed

  1. Everything for my CPNE applicatin is done aside from a passport photo and health form. That'll will be complete by next Thursday.

    NOW I'm nervous. NOW I'm scared! NOW I'm second guessing the whole nursing thing.

    You'll do fine Sue. Take it one step at a time, don't think about the whole thing, it'll be overwhelming. Break it up to bitesized goals. Think about your plan in smaller chunks.

    Bury yourself in that CPNE guide and do like suggested, break it up into small chunks. Set up your little mini skills lab in your home and pick a skill and start practicing to the standards in the guide. Do something every day. Make a calendar and put goals on it from the guide. You can do this.

    You will be an RN in the near future. I have faith that you will do it, so lose the paralysis.

    Go here:

    Click on "student login" on the top menu bar. The user name is excelsior and the password is k1411 -- log in and buy your bag. I bought the bag that was the "Excelsior CPNE Kit W/Simulation Wound."

    People also sell them on eBay, but I just went ahead and bought the kit from the vendor.
