    Oh Drat! I bunch of you PM'd me and I went to send the files but the email failed. AND, to keep my allnurses box from filling up I deleted your email addresses and now I cannot resend it! I am so sorry for those of you who may think I have ignored your PM.

    So, you will have to re-PM me and I'll try again. Sorry about that.

    When I began my studies for RN, I went through Rue. They provide a diirected study system where you don;t have to guess what to study.
    I did well with that. When I decided I should not have to pay them and also Excelsior College, I only had Excelsior Study Guides to work from.
    Although the study guides are useful, they do not key in on everything.
    The tests were more difficult, but I managed. There was always questions related to lab results, disease symptoms and management; plus the tests were very broad. I didn't like it, because unlike LPN school, you did not have just one subject, say disease process and related drugs; the range of material was extensive, so one never knew exactly what to study. Looking
    back, I wonder how I did pass tests with no instructor, or ANY outside help.
    This in itself takes knowledge and motivation, so I question all of the people
    who say the Excelsior program is inadequate. My learning has been more
    difficult, and because of this, I can say yes I have worked harder to achieve what I have because I have had no help what soever. At the same time, I have worked as a nurse while studying, plus take care of a family.
    The effort one puts into something should be appreciated. Daun

    Please stick to the original topic of the thread. If you have Excelsior questions that are not related to the CPNE, please start a new thread with the appropriate title.
