    I Passed NCLEX with 75 question and a GOOD Pearson Vue popup within 5 hours of taking the test. I PASSED AND HAVE MY LICENSE IN HAND!!!!! Thanks to all of you for the great info to help me with my journey through Excelsior. Damn it's been a long 20 years to get my act together.

    The College Network - Legit or Scam?

    CANCEL IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I also bought the college network material and failed the first test that I used their material for. You can do the program without College Network!!!! I graduated from Excelsior, took NCLEX today and know that purchasing the materials from the college network was a waste of money!!!! Take it from a successful, soon to be RN you do not need college network.

    To take the nclex review class or not?

    I recommend the Hurst reveiw. They do it in person or online!! I did the live review for my LPN license and the online for RN(took NCLEX today-- got the good pop up from pearson). I know this is the review that did the trick for me!!! Worth every penny!!!

    CPNE Packing List

    Must have, Picture ID, nursing care plan book, watch with second hand, non programable calculator, drug book, white scrubs and shoes, pencils. All other things are comforts from home, as for study material, bring what every you need to survive( by the time you leave, you should know it like the back of your hand). What ever you need wether it be prayer, meditation, exercise, rx, music, figure out now how you will deal with the stress because there will be stress!!! YOU can pass, but you need to control the stress.
