CPNE® Preparation

Conferences

We offer these online conferences to help you prepare for the CPNE. All conferences are on a first come, first served basis. These conferences are intended for enrolled nursing students planning to take the CPNE within the next six months.

This four-week online conference provides students with the opportunity to hone their skills in developing nursing care plans (planning, revised planning, and evaluation), completing the PCS Recording Form and documenting critical elements for the areas of care. 

The student will perform a variety of self-assessments to determine personal strengths and weaknesses, will then apply nursing knowledge through the use of case studies, and submit an assignment (during week 4) bringing together all the skills acquired during weeks 1-3. Students who plan to participate in this online conference should have read the Study Guide and be familiar with the critical elements for all areas of care including planning, revised planning, and evaluation phase care plans in order to gain the maximum benefit from the activities.

Duration: 4 weeks.

Cost: $350
