    CPNE Advice!

    I applied in Apr and still don't have a date. I contacted the school and they say probably January-February. Its frustrating not having a date, but it's out of our hands for sure. Didn't know about the Facebook pages for CPNE. I'll have to check those out. The CPNE portal has been really helpful. Best of luck to every one!

    Why don't you just read the chart?

    I guess the bottom line is that we do different kinds of nursing. You are an ED nurse. You focus on the quick, top priority. Floor nurses have to focus on in depth patient care. We require much more information than ED nurses do. It's just the nature of the beast so to speak. I work in both environments. It has been very enlightening. I strongly suggest we take turns to walk in each others shoes.

    Excelsior Grad Nov '12 New RN!

    Congrats!! I am an LPN advancing my career via the College Network and Excelsior. If I had to do it over, I would have just gone through Excelsior! that being said, I LOVE Excelsior! And I agree, it's harder than a traditional school, because you have to be super motivated to complete it! I hope to be posting the same results a year from now! WAY TO GO!!
