    ATTENTION ANYONE WANTING THE FILES
    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...

    Did you ever get your test date? I am curious b/c I am CPNE eligible and thinking I should apply to the NPAC (thinking it will be the quickest route). Thanks

    I am still a little confused on the entire process during the examination. I managed to get a test date yesterday for the end of January. I am excited, but also very nervous. I have read a lot of information regarding a grid. If someone wouldn't mind sharing one with me, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Secondly, I don't have time to go to CPNE workshop which I wish I had the opportunity. I ordered flash cards and the the DVD instruction video from Excelsior. Does anyone have any other study ideas on what I can do to help me prepare?

    I have received some materials for nursing care plans and an online conference. Is this something that is manadatory, or something that is to help you prepare?

    Is four weeks enough time to prepare for this thing? Heading to Syracuse NY!

    Thanks for all of your help.

    If you don't mind how has it been since you applied, and did you get a cancellation?

    me, too...they offered me jan, but had to decline (we're in the middle of moving, starting a new job, etc) my date is at the end of feb. am going to Syracuse, too.
    i would get the skills kit if i were you. it comes with a little book where it gives instructions on what to do, what not to do during the lab, what you should do if this/that happened.
    i got the same set of papers as you where it tells you about what they offer in order to prepare you better for the real thing, but you don't have to do any of that.
    good luck and let us know how it went.

    I was just curious if you knew what we had to wear to the CPNE. Is there a specific uniform?
  12. by   arelle68
    All white uniform. Clean white shoes, and they give you a name badge.
