waiting for CPNE counts for re-enrollment time??

So let's say I get done with all my tests, all my modules, this FCCA or whatever, and I am just waiting for my CPNE date to come around. During the waiting period, my one-year anniversary comes. Am I going to have to pay the re-enrollment fee even though I am just sitting on my tush, done with classes, waiting?

I bet the answer is 'yes', but just thought I'd throw it out there.

Yes you will. But they will apply the $440 annual fee toward your graduation fee. So when you take the CPNE and pass, all you have to pay is $50 to graduate.

NC girl--

And just out of curiousity...if you for some God aweful reason dont fall the first time--this deal is null and void right?

Felicia, yes, in that case you'd have to cough up the $440 and keep on rollin'. :)

I believe some students have also had the $440 deferred completely, then paid the entire graduation fee ($495).

Personally, I finished my CPNE on June 15, 2008 and graduated August 15, 2008, but my $440 would have been due on July 17th or so. They waived it, of course.

Thank Lunah--so your 440 is due on your anniversary date? Or is there a standard date?

another probably dumb question: am I paying the 2000 at the time i apply for my CPNE, or once I actually get a date, or....how does that work?

lovely. thanks Lunah! How did you decide to get Excelsior-ized?

I work full-time, as I did all the way thru nursing school. This is the only way I can do the RN. My husband is in school full-time to be a diesel mechanic, so I am the only income. I want to get my RN asap so I can move to Phx and work at the Mayo clinic. My mom is transplant coordinator there and she said they are recruiting nurses all the time, offering ridiculous sign-on bonuses and paying for relocation!! We want to go, but it only works if I have my RN first. I guess if I can struggle financially for now and get through all the modules, then once hubby is working we will be able to afford the CPNE, I can git-r-dun and start a new life in Phx! Whew, it sounds so exciting, eh? I just hope I can get through before TX besides to screw me out of my RN

thanks for answering all my questions.

Regarding the yearly student fee, I actually was due to pay it in February. But I had to personally call the school and fax over a letter stating I was currently waiting for the CPNE. This is when they waived/deferred my fee.

So to be on the safe side, I think you should call the school because most likely they will still process that fee and won't automatically defer it for you.

For the EC grads how long did you have to wait for your CPNE date after finishing all classes
