Finding the Right Support System for the CPNE®

There are fewer things more challenging than the CPNE®. As you begin to study and seek out CPNE® tips and advice, you are liable to find that it will require a lot of preparation and study, thereby taking you away from your normal routines and activities. Your family and friends may start to feel a bit neglected and, if you are not careful, you may end up feeling like you are all alone in the world.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Even if your family and friends are not currently as supportive as they could be, there are ways to get them on board with you to help you through this challenging time. There are also other people in your life that may be able to provide support thereby helping you to achieve CPNE® success.

1. Family. This is probably the most important part of your support system. If you have young children at home or some other situation where you shoulder a lot of the responsibility in running your household, it may be time to sit down with your family and show them ways they can help. Older children could help with younger children, a spouse or significant other could provide some of the meals and child care, and even grandparents and aunts and uncles may be able to chip in and help with kids, meals, or even cleaning. Be sure to include some family time in your schedule each day so neither you nor your family feels neglected.

2. Peers. Seek out other people who are studying for the test. You can find a lot of support online and can share CPNE® tips, study strategies, and other useful information. Surrounding yourself with others who are studying will also help to increase your confidence and morale as you encourage each other to hang in there and finish the course.

3. Professionals. Some of the best support you will find is that from a CPNE® workshop. There you will find people who can guide you through each part of the exam and help you realize your own strengths and weaknesses. A good workshop will offer support up to and right through the exam itself and will not stop helping you until you have achieved CPNE® success. If you have any doubts about the exam at all, a good workshop is the best way to ease those doubts and bolster your confidence.

4. Friends. You may have good friends, but if they have never taken the CPNE®, they will probably not really understand how difficult this is for you. The best thing you can do is talk to them, let them know how important this test is, and assure them that you are not deserting them. If you usually hang out at the mall or go to the movies with your friends, you might suggest they come to your place so you can practice vital signs and assessments on them. You get to be with them and study at the same time.

5. Co-workers. If you are already working in health care, your co-workers can be a great support for you. They may have answers to some of your questions, or they might be able to point out situations at work where you can either practice or observe the skills you need to learn. If you let them know you need to study and learn, they may even be willing to pick up a shift or two for you or cover for you if you need to change your schedule.

Chances are, there are already a lot of people in your life who will be willing to help you to achieve CPNE® success if you let them know how they can help. Allow them to help you and be grateful for their support. It has gotten you this far and can help you pass this exam and take one more step toward your future.
