cheltoe's Latest Activity

  1. hey, just wanted to throw in my 2cents, i know i always appreciated it when people who had actually finished posted encouragement! i started in october 2009 then finished october 2010 after being an lpn for 1 year. i worked part time and used study guide 101. i took the cpne in mansfield, ohio. (excellent site). i took lynn's workshop and used rob's videos. one thing i was disapointed in was saunders rn nclex comprehensive review. the questions were about 10x easier than the actual nclex. i would not recomend it. excelsior is difficult, but it is doable. hang in there.

    How long to complete EC LVN to RN?

    started october 2009, finished october 2010. i took the month of december off and a couple of months in the summer due to a car accident. the wait for my cpne date seemed to take the longest.

    Pearson Vue Trick Works!!!

    i have to agree. i was sure i had failed. (didn't feel that way with the nclexpn) got the good popup and a couple of days later my name was on the tbon. worked like a charm.

    Saunders NCLEX helpful for ECE???

    hi, i used saunders for some (very little) of the eces but i found out very quickly when i took the nclex on 12/20 that the saunders questions were alot easier than the actual nclex questions. i had read where a couple of people thought they were too easy, but there were so many positive reviews that i got it any way. i passed, but i wished i had gotten something different. just my 2cents.

    seems like more people are passing lately?

    i also wonder if more people just post about passing than failing. i have three friends that have taken it within the last couple of months and all 3 failed. there were 6 in my group and i know for sure that only 4 made it back the 3rd day (aside from me don't know how many of those 3 passed).

    i just finished with excelsior on nov 19 and will sit for the nclex on monday the 20th. i had almost all my prereqs and it took me right at 1 year. it is very hard, but doable. the 3 day clinical (cpne) is brutal, but again, doable. there is a wealth of information on the distance learning forum under "students". i really learned alot over there. good luck.

    Those studying for the CPNE- here's a huge tip

    hi, i passed the cpne oct. 5 this year with no repeats. i took a workshop and used rob's dvd's and i really think rob's helped me the most. rob has a website. i think it's something like robscpne.com. you should be able to find it.
