    I personally have spent a ton on just prepping! Not complaining just saying. We know how to do it. We just need repetitive practice i think. Its kinda the same when you precept for someone. Just go by your criticalelements and it will be ok. Arent you doing sheris? She does have a mock of a pcs situation. I was told a clipboard would just get in the way....it may work for others though.

    I was wondering that too beachie! I was thinking id keep papers in my pocket folded and as i need to write pull it out then put it back. Also for my grid i thought id write it off and maybe referto it during each aoc as needed..... Not sure if thats normal. So glad ppl are willing to share their experiences.

    I keep thinking of sccenarios too! Of course mine dont usually have all kinds of ppl interrupting!! So you ambulated each pt according to what the kardex said right? Did you step out to do the 20 min checks? Was the CE RIGHT over you the entire time? Im so happy you passed- you so deserve it!

    One region and then you check which sites you would be willing to test at. Good luck!!

    Excelsior College Graduation

    Holy crap!! Unbelieveable! Why would you have to pay an annual fee? Mine is due in october i think. It was my understanding that annual fees were for tests then once done you pay for cpne.... No idea. The private nursing school i went to where i live, the same thing happened kinda. They raised fees three times while i was enrolled, enforced a no job while in school policy, and treated us like toddlers.... All bc they could. I got a great education but i was done when i graduated. Many many ppl felt this way. Im hoping and being positive about the cpne.we know the skills, its just that we have to go by the rules again.
