    Passed my CPNE :) !!

    Hey all, I haven't posted in awhile but wanted to let everyone know that I passed my CPNE at Mertier Hospital in Madison, WI September 13-15, 2013. It can be done !! I studied hard, read and broke down the study guide until I was dreaming CPNE and knowing it like I knew my social security number lol. Did all of the EC message center and phone PCS on the EPN. I also did weekly phone conferences with advisors and emailed them questions daily. I used Rob's CPNE items and I did Sheri's online workshop for about 6 months. They all helped me be successful. Control your nerves and perform at your exam with confidence and you will do fine. I used a grid and Rob's mnemonics and passed with no problem. I officially graduated with my ASN from EC 11/15/13 and now I'm waiting on my ATT to take my NCLEX-RN so my dreams are coming true. I also starting the RN-MSN in nursing education program at Western Governor's University in February 2014, but this could not all be possible without Excelsior College so keep at it and with hard work and determination it will all pay off. Good luck to everyone and you can do this !!!

    Straighterline Statistics course ?

    No I Haven't taken it yet. I've been studying hard for my CPNE that's in about 2 weeks. I plan to apply to WGU once Im done with the ASN and from what I'm reading on their FaceBook page from other students Stats is not to bad there. I'm leaning towards taking it with WGU when I start.

    Passed LS3 Today !! I'm FCCA/CPNE bound !!!!

    I don't know if this question was directed for me but I never did an appeal of any kind with EC, so I don't know the process. Good luck to you.

    Passed LS3 Today !! I'm FCCA/CPNE bound !!!!

    Thanks LoMo I always used the content guide and I used Studygroup 101 study guide and practice exams, vango notes, flashcards and other sources I found on my IPhone. I didn't need actual textbooks but I used them for reference but of course every one is different. Know your learning style I'm a audiovisual learner so I listened to Vangonotes and did hundreds of practice questions for each exam by the time I took the 130 ? exam I knew my stuff. Good luck !

    Taylor's Iphone Ap

    When you download the Taylor app's you can then customized your quizzes by subjects/ chapters and I used my content guide from EC to choose which questions depending on which exam I was taking for example if I was studying for LS1 cardio section I would choose the cardiovascular questions to answer with rationales for any wrong answers . Hope this helps ! :)
