    I used Chancellor’s materials to prepare me for the ASN degree. I worked and was a single parent. I even worked two jobs. I didn’t have time to go through all the mountains of books Excelsior’s wants their students to read you can if you really love to read and have plenty of time. Granted Chancellor’s study guides do cost quite a bit but they take all the reading and research ( hard work out of preparing for the exams). Once I began studying their study guides. I made notes and even not cards. I did even do intra library loans on a few books to compare their books to what Excelsior wanted their students to study. I was thrilled it was all the same. The dates on the study guides might have been older but the content was all 100% the same, but to recheck I registered for the exam and paid for the practice exams. There were journal articles I hadn’t read. It all came together. I finished with honors. I managed to work and finish school while supporting my child thanks to Chancellor’s. The CPNE lab was helpful it does help preparation is your best teacher for the CPNE. Chancellor’s is the path to a new career You have to make the commitment to yourself and you can do it RN is closer than you ever imagined.
