Hello 2b_bsrn0523, how long did it take for you to get a date for your CPNE after you applied for it? I was thinking about taking it in NY also, thinking that I could possibly get a date sooner because there are more sites there, but I was told that the wait is about the same at all the centers in all the regions, is this true? Besides the CPNE Guide, did you use any other Excelsior resources to help prepare and study for the CPNE? I am considering doing the 3 day workshop to get a better understanding of what is required, what do you think? Any suggestions or tips will be greatly appreciated and welcomed. I to am going to be another Excelsior Success Story as well.:balloons: Way to go!
