  1. No more CPNE at Plano

    I just learned that it isn't the lack of patients but the lack of physical space that caused the end of CPNE testing at Plano. I don't want to spread any wrong information. Tom

    I bought used College Network books off EBAY and liked them. If you are not LPN background, you should purchase the full "Fundamentals of Nursing" text. I went to Paramedic school and the nuring text helped me start thinking like a nurse. Tom
  3. Passed CPNE in Albany (AMC) 1/17, No Retakes!

    Congrads and thanks for the write-up. It gives those of us following behind you hope.
  4. No more CPNE at Plano

    I was scheduled for 2-12-2010 in Plano and just got a call telling me that Medical Center in Plano has not renewed their contract with Excelsior. The reason stated is they could not get enough patients for Excelsior. So, now I am being moved to 2-2...
  5. Very cool. I bet the Paramedic background helped on that one!

  9. Anyone doing EC from the D/FW area??

    I'm from Denton and have completed all but two of the tests. I'll be glad to lend a hand to someone else; it will help me as well as it helps you. I need to get moving on the exams again.
  10. Help

    Debi23, How long ago did you sign up with the college network? Less than three days and you can exit your contract. Their materials are good, but you can get them used cheaper on EBAY. If past the 3 day limit, then let the contract with them mot...
  11. Excelsior

    As another medic, I would second the advice given. Sign up directly with Excelsior. Don't sign up with any of the third party study guide providers. Good Luck and keep coming back to this Forum. There are always lots of helpful people here. T...

  13. Soooooo much reading!

    The reading you are doing is good review, but likely much more than you need to do in order to pass your first EC test. Pick up a good study guide for NC1 off EBAY and study from it. It will be much faster. Then if there are any areas that you kno...
