Hello, all!

I just graduated with my Master's in Nursing Education. (yay!)

I am studying for the CNE exam. I have studied for about a week using Billings & Halstead and the NLN Review Book. I downloaded the CNE study app...but unlocking most of the content is $80. Is it worth it?

I already took the SAE once and I got a 72%, just to see where I am starting from. I suppose that's not horrible, but obviously I want to get better!

Any tips for me? Did anyone else take the SAE without a lot of studying and compared it to when they were ready to take the test? I am curious.

Thank you!

I am also studying for my CNE (scheduled in Sept) and on the advice of my chair and other faculty have not paid for the full content. I have read Billings and the NLN review and have been doing the daily questions with pocket prep. My chair said that she felt the additional content/SAE would be overkill.

I did pay for the full app, but I think there was a sale on at the time. You basically get a lot of practice questions, which I really like. I passed the CNE exam on my first attempt almost a year ago. I think the SAE helped get me in the groove as well, I did that a week prior.
