    Hi Jess89c, My authorization to test came in about 2 weeks. It was quicker then I expected. Good luck!! Let me know if you have any other questions.

    CNEcl

    I finally sat for the exam today and I passed!! In my opinion the exam was challenging but doable. My study plan included reading the entire Oermann, Hellenbarger, Gaberson book, Billings & Halstead (clinical, sims, and learning theories chapters), CNE review guide ( red book; only the clinical, sims, and learning theories chapters), the new CNEcl review guide (it’s contains questions only), and the self assessment exam. The questions on the SAE and in the CNEcl review book were very helpful.

    CNEcl

    Hello aanurse, I have not taken the exam yet. I have 3 resources in addition to Billings and Halstead: Clinical Nurse Educator Competencies from NLN, Clinical Teaching Strategies in Nursing (Oermann), and the CNEcl review guide by Wittman-Price. I took and passed the CNE IN 2017 and Billings and Halstead was the best resource in my opinion. I have received my authorization to test, but haven't set a date. I'm in my last year of my PhD program as well, so I'm trying to work it around that schedule.

    Studying for the CNE exam

    Congrats!!! I passed the CNE on the first attempt in October 2017. I think that Billings & Halstead was the best resource along with the SAE. The SAEs questions were structured like the actual exam itself. I also used the CNE study app and answered all of the questions and reviewed the rationales. I think that the more questions you answer the better.

    CNE Exam

    I am sorry to hear this. The exam is definitely difficult and I agree that your method of studying including all of the pertinent information needed for the exam. I definitely think you should retake the exam.

    Does years of experience matter?

    Thank you. In your opinion why is 5 years of full time RN experience the magic number?

    Does years of experience matter?

    Dishes, Would the new NP or nurse educator not be considered as a novice within that specialty regardless of prior RN experience?

    Does years of experience matter?

    Thank you. I have been looking for research related to patient outcomes for those cared for by NPs with little to no RN experience. I haven't pinpointed any just yet. I know this is a very hot topic, but is it evidence based that patient outcomes are better with experienced RNs who become NP? Or is it just the culture of nursing to correlate experience with ability to practice effectively in an advanced role?
