What About Clinicals?

After you complete all of your credit requirements, the last step is for you to prove your skills at the Excelsior College (formerly Regents College) clinical(s).

For ADN students you have only 1 clinical exam to complete.
The Clinical Performance in Nursing Exam (CPNE) is a weekend clinical at 1 of 17 locations across the country.

There is no instruction during the clinical exam. Excelsior College will only observe you to determine your skill competency.
Your prior training and work experience is key to passing the CPNE.

BSN students must complete three weekend clinicals the CPNE, the HAPE/TPE, and the PRPE. You are eligible for the first exam after completing Health Restoration I and II. Other good information about this...
