    Whelp. It's my one year anniversary since passing the BEAST they call the CPNE. Yay! To all those still working toward the light at the end of the long, dark, imposing tunnel... keep striving. You can do it!

    And keep the requests coming.

    I, too would love any tips offered. You are awesome and inspiring. I have been lurking around this site since early 2004 I believe. It took the Oct.1 changes to get me enrolled. I enrolled last month, and hope to start testing soon. I still have to take some pre-reqs and my NC's. Any advice regarding the entire experience is welcomed. Thanks again! Traci

    Due to the responses I've been getting for more information, I decided to also assemble a generic email I can send to anyone who wants all my files I collected in preparation for the CPNE. Some are my own, most are from other students. I really don't know authorship on any of them, just stuff that kind EC students sent me that I found very helpful, that I'm willing to pass along. Please don't think about sueing me for copyright infringement as I really don't know who the authors are!!! I'm just trying to help out here.

    It includes 22 file attachments (.wps, .doc, .txt, .pdf formats), as well as some useful web links and Grid ideas. Just a whole bunch of stuff! So, if you want my files and the files of others, PM me your email address and I'll send along.
    can you please send me these files

    Oh, and I would like to add. Prior to the CPNE I felt 95% confident, prepared and sure I would pass. However, when I got there, it was a different story. All confidence left me, and I turned into a nurse I had never seen myself become; a crying, apologetic, embarrased, red faced, insecure, shaky fool of a wreck. It was quite possibly and very closely the WORST experience I have ever had, but God literally carried me through it. I owe all of the glory to Him. It was more horrible than I imagined.
    New to this site, CPNE at the end of the month. Can you please send me your files? Thank you so much for doing this. God bless.

    I am new to this type of computer use. I do not know how to PM So if anticoagulationurse sees this hopefully she will know how to get to me--need info urgently.

    Just a reply, to the recent requests being posted here. I really don't check on the postings to this thread very often and therefore will not be aware of your request if you post it here. The best way to request the files is to PM me and include your personal email address. It's againt the rules to post your email address here, and besides it might be months before I see it.

    I am still sending the files out, but nowadays only do so once a week, occasionally more often, just so you know...

    Please let me know how things go in Albany. I am waiting on my date, and it will be somewhere in NY. I have heard absolutely NOTHING about the northern sites re: test taking and have wondered if I have made a mistake in signing up in that region. Thanks!

    Thanks again,
