Ok, so now I have a question for ANYONE out there who FAILED the CPNE for 1 reason or another the allotted 3 times and STILL want to earn their ASN through Excelsior (Formerly Regents????????????? Has this happened to anyone and if so what recourse or action was at your disposal. This happened to me the alloted 3 times due to MY BAD HEALTH, and not necessarily the Regents College CPNE. At the time of the last failure, the then administration told me they had approved the option for me to retake the exam AGAIN. I was too sick, too broke, and too upset to try again at that time ie 2001. So I let my enrollment lapse, WRONG!! Now I have to RETAKE all the nursing exams and the Life Span test before I can even apply for the CPNE. I also have to wait for at least 5 years from when my enrollment lapsed. OK< SO I WILL DO IT!!!!! I would love to have some support from those out there in cyberland who would understand where I am coming from and maybe, just maybe, give me a little constructive guidance. Thankyou all for any and all support.
