About Us

A Little Bit About Who We Are

We are a private training facility that has been helping EC distance learning nursing students work towards their RN degree and through their CPNE since 2004.  To date our CPNE workshop, based in Atlanta, GA, has helped over 3,000 nursing students pass the CPNE.  Every month we’re privileged to receive students from all over the country for our 3-day, hands-on workshop and continue to help hundreds of students every month through our multiple online learning platforms.

We pride ourselves on constantly raising the standards for what you should expect in a workshop and for innovating new ways to make studying more convenient, affordable and risk free to the student.  We are the first, and only, workshop to offer multiple money back guarantees to give our students  the peace of mind that the risk is on us.  As the standard for CPNE workshops, we’re often imitated but still produce the highest pass rate in the nation while still remaining the lowest cost, all-inclusive workshop with the most ongoing support.

Our team of highly skilled Registered Nurses and dedicated administrative staff are standing by to help you make passing the CPNE your first time a reality.

Meet the team that makes it all happen!

Robin Smith


When it comes to ATL Clinical Workshop, whatever you need, Robin is the one who will help you out. Friendly, funny and encouraging, she’s not your typical office worker bee. Robin was born and raised in Atlanta, GA, a 5th generation Atlantan. Through a passion for performance and theater that developed in her early years, she decided to settle in Los Angeles in 2004 to pursue theatrical training. In Los Angeles, Robin worked in both the event and entertainment industries as an actor, floral designer, and SEO specialist.

After many years on the West Coast, she decided it was time to bring her skills and talents back home (which worked out well for us!) Robin brings both technical expertise and a customer focused ethos to ATL Clinical workshop and we're thrilled to have her on the team: she's another piece of the puzzle in helping our students pass their CPNE.

Robin holds a bachelors degree in Liberal Arts from Antioch University and a degree from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

Greg Edwards, RN, EMT-P


Greg Edwards is an RN, paramedic, former fitness instructor, and has been teaching in one capacity or another for over twenty years. He holds multiple certifications in Emergency Medicine: Basic Life Support Instructor, Advance Cardiac Life Support instructor, Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support Instructor, Advance Medical Life Support Instructor, National Professional Qualification Level Two instructor and Georgia Smoke Diver Instructor.

Greg is a gifted and engaging teacher as well as a top quality nurse. His students rave about his wit, dedication, and commitment to their success. He is a graduate of Excelsior College, an alumnus of Sheri’s workshop and boasts 23 years on the College Park Fire Department, where he is currently Battalion Chief. Greg is currently working on his master’s degree.

In 2003 Greg decided to leave the fitness industry to take on the position of EMS coordinator and EMS training officer for the College Park Fire Department. During this time he cultivated relationships with individuals in the pre-hospital and hospital environments. Through these relationships Greg developed the desire to become a Registered Nurse and in February 2008 he enrolled at Excelsior College.

With only six hours of transferable credits, Greg breezed through the entire bridge program in just fifteen months but hit a standstill after failing the CPNE after his first attempt. Deciding that failing the CPNE again wasn’t an option he attended Sheri Taylor’s workshop, which cultivated two great outcomes: not only did Greg pass his CPNE in September of 2009 but he also realized that he had a place in Sheri’s workshop helping future CPNE test takers.

Greg ascribes to the philosophy that book knowledge alone will not prepare anyone for the rigors of taking the CPNE and he strives to pass along everything he knows about the test.  They say sometimes the best way to learn is from your mistakes, but Greg prefers to teach students to learn from his mistakes.

Sheri Taylor, RN-C, MSN


Sheri has an unparalleled passion for teaching that she has used to help thousands of Excelsior College students through their nursing concepts, CPNE and NCLEX with a stellar pass rate. With 24 years as a nurse her accomplished career boasts such accolades as: Assistant Director, Director, Clinical Coordinator, and Transport Coordinator. For ten years she was an educator with The American Heart Association in BLS, PALS, NRP, and ACLS as well as a S.T.A.B.L.E. instructor. She has served on multiple committees for JCAHO: policies and procedures, infectious diseases, & quality assurance. Sheri has also been nominated as Nurse of the Year by both Southern Regional Medical Center and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. She holds her Master’s Degree in Nursing Education and her Bachelor’s in Business Management.

Sheri has authored or co-authored several books and her articles have appeared in several well respected nursing publications. More importantly though, her students always say they started their class with an instructor, but ended it with a friend that is willing to bend over backward to make sure they reach their goals.

Although teaching is Sheri’s passion, she continues to work as a nurse in the field and has had the pleasure of traveling all over the United States.  Her first love in nursing is caring for children from birth to 18 years old and she holds national certifications in Neonatal Intensive Care, Low Risk Neonatal, and Maternal Newborn. She enjoys specializing in NICU, PICU, Peds, Peds ER, Peds Psych (particularly autism), and Peds Oncology. She has been lucky enough to work in these specialities at some of the best children’s hospitals in the southeast: Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (Scottish Rite, Eggleston, and Hughes Spalding Children’s Hospital) and St. Jude’s.
