Hi, This is Linda Jamieson, RN. Years ago I did my schooling at Excelsior and did not pass my CPNE®. Then I got married and had children. In the last few years I brought my education back up to date and participated in two CPNE® workshops, including a very good one in California. I am starting a program in West Michigan, in the Great Lakes area to help other Excelsior Graduates successfully take the LPN to RN route and pass their CPNE®.
