Workshop: earlier vs. later?

Has 8 years experience. Specializes in PACU.

OK if you could take only one workshop, when would it be? Early in your studies (have a general idea of what to expect but haven't really memorized or practiced too much) or later in your studies after you've taught yourself a lot of the material? I was planning on doing it later but my last post got me thinking that maybe an early workshop would be better since I still feel clueless about a lot of things. Help!

Also, does anyone know what is going on with Tina Logan's website? I've been trying to get on all day and the page won't open.:confused:

i had been trying too, and the page would not connect.I thought it was because of work computer. They sometimes block sites. I have decided on going with Tara in Pa. Trying to make it in May.

What region will you be testing in? I am in the NPAC

NPAC also, applied to every site but Queens (even though that is the closest too me, lol). I've never heard of Tara in PA, what is the web address?

Oh that looks great! Do you know what dates she is offering it? She doesn't have a schedule up on her website.

Send her an email and she will call you today

She sent them to me, thanks! Still not sure if those dates will work, but I might go in April.

I think it is best to go to a workshop early to get started on the right track. Then, if you can come up with the money, go again, about a month or so, out from your test date.

I just became eligible 2 weeks ago and went to Lynn's workshop last week and I am so glad I did. It makes studying so much easier b/c the study guide can be overwhelming. She has a mock cpne also and I think I will go to that about a month before I test. I'm trying to get my cpne app together now so don't know a date yet. But I recommend wherever u go, go early. Hope this helps.

my personal opinion is that you should probably take a work shop in the beginning of your studies because there is so much to study you will feel overwhelmed at the amount of information that you are expected to know....the workshop slims this down and gets you on a good study track....if you wait till around ur cpne time you will be trying to cram all this in your overworked brain.....i highly recommend lynns she gives you a huge discount on a second workshop if you need it and i always recommend 2 workshops one in the beginning and one in the end....

Thanks everyone! I'm taking Tara's in PA in mid-April. After thinking about it I really think this is the best option for me. I know it will get me on the right track for studying and seeing where my weak areas are. I wish I could take another, but it's probably not going to happen!!
