Passed my CPNE at York hospital 3/25/11, and only now can I sit down and write about it! I swear I have PTSD, but it's starting to get better. I had always imagined how I would act, what I would do, when I passed the CPNE. In reality, all I wanted to do afterwards was sleep! :) I haven't even celebrated yet, because it doesn't seem real to me. I seriously have nightmares where I get a phone call and it's excelsior telling me they looked over my documentation and found something wrong with it so they have to fail me! LOL....I swear I am such a mess! I don't think anything could have prepared me for just how stressful those 3 days would be. I've been a cardiac nurse for 15 years, and I am so confident, but all that goes out the window during CPNE! I am so glad to have that behind me. I am actually looking forward to the NCLEX, because I used an NCLEX book to study for all of my nursing exams. At least I won't have one of the CE's staring at me the whole time! I would highly recommend York Hospital as a testing site. The CA and CE's were very nice (as nice as they could be), and tried their best to put everyone at ease. It was more laid back than I thought it would be, and even so, I was a wreck!
