Is it possible to pass this test?

 YES! you just need the best CPNE workshop or system you can find...


Anyone can pass this difficult test when you follow the carefully constructed system that you'll find inside...

*CPNE is a registered trademark of Excelsior College, which is not affiliated with Robs Review

  • Rob doesn't sugarcoat this and tells it like it is. And yeah, I failed 2 times.because I didn't study enough to pass it, had a bad attitude and we'll didn't do it Excelsior's Way. Never could remember the mneumomics. If you think it's hard to pass now..back then there were very little resources to help you get through it. Finding a grid online? what the hell is a grid? Never did find one back then. And a study guide over 500 pages..yeah, like I'm going to stay motivated? No Rob breaks I'm down in an easy to figure out process and uses visual mneumonics. the videos are.very good and well some of us need that person to keep them motivated when we are waiting forever for that test date. don't wait until you finally get the date to open the study guide and try to figure it out .winging this is not gonna work. This program is very good and doesn't leave out what's.important at the second time Rob keeps the details to what you need to know to pass ..not all the extra stuff that to some.bit for others is a distraction from the the meat and guts of the exam

    I too am a failure! 1st CPNE I only knew about Excelsior preparations, it wasn't enough. Rob gave me a road map to success, encouragement and a kick in the rear at times. He made it obvious the dedication he has to us, the students and that belief I was important carried me through the friends and family, work that didn't understand. Without this program and the PAS system I would not have had the confidence to excel, and excel I did!

    thumb Terri Singleton

    5 star review  Rob does an amazing job simplifying the CPNE. His mneumonics are solid and he does an amazing job keeping everything simple while explaining what is expected. I highly recommend his program. Thanks for everything, Rob!

    thumb Sonja Brester
  • I just signed up for Rob’s review and from what I could see you from the videos and the information that he gives it makes taking the CPne easier and by that I mean it makes the studying a lot easier there is so much material, he condensed it and make it easier....The mneumonics help a lot

    thumb Barbara Mendez Wareham

    You will not regret signing up. After a long wait and a lot of preparation, I received my golden ticket on July 29, 2018. The mnemonics SAVED me. So thankful I passed the CPNE on my first attempt, and extremely thankful for the content, guidance, and encouragement provided by Robs Review. 5 stars!

    thumb Sorrele Blevins

    5 star review  Mnemonics are odd which really helped me remember and are exactly the steps excelsior is looking for! I got the wound and nailed it because of robs method!

    thumb Theresa Sorensen
  • 5 star review  I just passed the CPNE with no repeats — and nice compliments from my CE’s and CA (“great,” “amazing,” “organized,” and “excellent”!)— and it was ONLY because of Rob’s Review. I know 100% I wouldn’t have even passed without this program! The CPNE was the most stressful exam I’ve gone through in my life, and at least half of my group (smart, capable women) didn’t pass. But I stuck to the mnemonics, and checked off each item of the mnemonic as I went. That, and lots of practice at home with my dummy (“Suzy Queue”), keeping a cool head (as much as possible), and a heapful of God’s grace made it a successful weekend! Now I can look forward to [doing that ATI course and then] passing my NCLEX and finally getting the letters “RN” after my name! Thanks, Rob!

    thumb Alida Raynor

    There are lots of great things about this program from the online videos and workshops to Rob's availability to answer questions to a one time payment that gives you access to the whole program until you pass instead of monthly payments like some programs. The best thing for me was the mnemonics. I don't know how else I would have remembered all of the critical elements under pressure of being watched by an examiner during testing. With mnemonics, I just made out my lists and checked off the boxes until I knew that I had remembered everything. I passed on my first try thanks to Rob's Review.

    thumb Erin Arthur Devilbiss

    5 star review  Rob’s review was the key to my success. I learned to rely on the mnemonics and passed with no problems. Thank you for your program and the information you provided. It was still a nerve racking situation but it was made a bit better because I knew I could rely on my practice and the mnemonic. Thank you again!

    thumb Pam Patrick
  • 5 star review  Could not have done it without Rob's program. He was always there for me. I knew if I had a question he would answer. Plus his response time was very, very quick. Not to mention the information given in his program really helped break the cpne down. CPNE is amazingly overwhelming and Rob will make it easy to get started and dig in.

    thumb Jaime Lenox

    5 star review  Absolutely the best workshop you can review. I would’ve stood zero chance without robs strategy and construction of program ! I can’t thank rob enough for making an anxious scenario into a confident one. He really nailed every tip and hint made my CPNE experience much more available.

    thumb Mike Schlegel

    5 star review  This program was an amazing resource in my preparation for the exam. The videos were helpful and enhanced the school videos with some additional significant tidbits of information. The mnemonics were a huge benefit in helping me pass. Having the memory aid which covered all aspects of the testing process with videos explaining them helped me to understand how the test would work and what would be expected of me. The support was great, the explanations on why things need to be done was important to me as well. Thank you for this amazing resource!

    thumb Lisa Busby
  • 5 star review  I started studying for the CPNE about 3 months prior to testing. I had no clue where to start when I began preparing for this test. The video will give you a much better understanding of the exam flow and will give you a structured system for studying. The only resources I used were the ones excelsior provided as well as what was on Robs Review. His videos and mnemonics were both very helpful. I passed with only repeating the medications administration station due to a simple mistake.

    thumb Michael Ptak

    5 star review  I just passed my CPNE today! I signed up for Robs program as soon as I was done with my classes a year ago. He had great mnemonics to follow and explains everything in detail! I also highly suggest doing a virtual workshop before you go in front of your testers. It was very helpful to get feedback and know what you need to work on. Highly recommended!!

    thumb Vanessa Deem Zimmerman-Wall

    5 star review  Robs material is right on!! Worth the money!! I could never have passed this without his program!

    thumb Cindy Ringheiser-Gidlewski
  • 5 star review  Been using this since before CPNE eligibility...I feel ahead of the game! Love it!

    thumb Michelle M. Peters

    4 star review  Rob's picture mnemonics were most helpful in remembering critical elements and the grid was key in being organized to get in and out of the room quickly and efficiently once I tweaked it to suit my needs adding numbers in order of which AOC in what order from entering the room to exit. 2 minute templates were good practice for care plans, keeping in mind that Excelsior is looking for patient-specific plans of care. One other thing to remember is that although Rob recommends giving the IM injection vastus lateralis, not every patient or lab dummy may have a clear vastus lateralis injection site. Have an alternative plan and practice ventral gluteal with a 1 1/2"-2" needle as required by Excelsior. You may need it. It could cost you thousands and months of wasted time and anguish to retest even if you are able to prove where in "Foundations" that it says that an IM injection is 1-1 1/2". Know your critical elements, practice with the scoring tool and utilize Excelsior's weekly faculty advisement calls. Rob's mnemonics do cover all critical elements as outlined in the scoring tool. Do a mock to get an idea of where your weaknesses are prior to testing so you can fix them. It was good to have Rob for support just a text away. The stress and anxiety management section is very helpful because with so much riding on passing this exam, the anxiety can be absolutely paralyzing. The easy payments and membership for as long as you need it are also a bonus. Best of luck to the future CPNE testers. This is a task like no other. I am so glad to have this behind me.

    thumb Doris D Preslar Leveque

    5 star review  Robs Review program is Great! I'm a visual learner and all his videos are great! I would not have been able to pass my first time without his mnemonics. His has a section that helps with controlling your anxiety.. and I listen to them the night I came back to my hotel after failing my first 2 PCS's. Came back on day 3 and passed all 3 PCS's! Thank You so much!

    thumb Marilyn Spaid
  • 5 star review  I honestly couldn’t have passed the cpne without robs program. He made it so easy to remember what I had to do with the mnemonics’s, great videos, how to write a quick care plan and I passed the cpne in December without repeats. His program also helped me later on with the nclex. I had a few questions that I had to put sterile technique in order and was able to breeze through those questions. I passed the nclex this past week. Thank you rob for not only helping me with the cpne but also bringing that knowledge for the nclex! This program was the best money I ever spent.

    thumb Amanda Sodano

    5 star review  So very grateful for all you do to help us. Your careplans /20 minute check saved me Your approach made learning fun. During the exam, it was easy to recall you doing the areas of care Thank you so much —forever grateful ❤️

    thumb Susan Short-tate

    5 star review  Love Rob's techniques and the way that he teaches because he says things that actually stick. My favorite one would be the IV push and it's like a game of playing Blackjack. Rob's care plans are also fantastic. Great course!

    thumb Jason Ashley Tobin Trujillo
  • 4 star review  It was a pass at chambersburg, PA past weekend. I thank God almighty first and of course Robsreview which without his guidance from day one till last minute i really have no idea how i could have slayed that beast. Thanks Rob so much. My advice, stay in one box on your grid before you tackle the next management. Its doable. I failed 1st medication and it was an eye opener....i repeated it with such courage and within 18 minutes i was done. Failing 1 isnt the end of the road.....take it as your eye opener. I wish all the tribe members the very best as you prepare to slay that beast. U ALL GOT THIS, ITS DOABLE. Good luck.

    thumb Caroline Kariuki

    5 star review  Just passed in Albany!!! Not possible without neumonics anf chapter for care plans. Don't even think about skipping out on the virtual workshop. Sets you for greatness!!

    thumb Roger Klien

    5 star review  Follow all that Rob mentioned in his videos, from building your manikin and practicing the AOC and rewriting your grids and mnemonics daily you will definitely be the next one to say "I passed my CPNE"

    thumb Jennifer Gobern-Hamm
  • 5 star review  Rob's program is the best because he is so patient and helpful..His mnemonics are so helpful...I could not do this without his caring and guidance. Thanks Rob for all you do for those of us who want to serve others. Peggy Swab

    thumb Peggy Swab

    5 star review  I super appreciate Rob and his excellent program! Excelsior does provide some good and useful CPNE information for their students. Rob’s information perfectly compliments Excelsior’s info and then helps the student organize and make sense of it all. Rob’s mnemonics are useful and memorable! Rob answered all of my questions patiently and promptly. I highly recommend to take advantage of this organized resource designed by someone that has been down the road that you are embarking on.

    thumb Kelli Walsh

    5 star review  Rob gives you the tools you need, he shows you how, he helped me to get organized with how to study for this test. There is so much information you need to pass the CPNE and Robs Review put it all into a format that made it easy to learn and retain.

    thumb Jessica Loihle
  • 5 star review  Rob’s Review is the best product out there to help you pass the CPNE. If you follow the program as it is the laid out you will certainly pass. I’m 61 yrs old and let my nerves start to get the best of me causing me to loose sleep Friday night. I was too tired Saturday to be anxious and just went through everything on Auto-pilot from Rob’s Review and passed all three AOCs without any repeats and finished my labs with passes. I never would have made it without Rob’s Review. A good friend of mine is going to try Excelsior after my experience with the CPNE and Rob’s Review!

    thumb Rhonda Coe

    5 star review  Robs review was a life saver.. I watch his videos over and over, went through his workbook, listened to his conversations recorded and then watch the videos again.. do exactly how he says.. watch it and then go do! It truly was the best bang for your buck! Well well worth the money.. I couldn’t have made it without his knowledge! Thanks Rob! You rock!!

    thumb Carman Dugger Mullins

    5 star review  I honestly couldn't have passed the cpne without Rob and his program. Sure, excelsior gives you everything you need to pass but they give it to you in an indecipherable manuscript that needs to be decoded, with no decoder. Rob has already translated it, broke it down into small chunks and is there for you if you have any questions or concerns. Do yourself a favor and sign up, put your time in and become a passer of the dreaded cpne.

What is the Robs REVIEW program?

This is the EXACT same workshop system that I created and used to pass the CPNEtest with ZERO repeats

It doesn't matter if you have access to patients to practice on or NOT.

I was working as a medical device sales agent with NO direct access to patients and I was to pass. If I can do it with NO patient contact, imagine what you can learn so that you can breeze through the CPNE test...

With this program, you'll have a PROVEN and tested system that you can use to be successful at your CPNE test. No matter which test site you go to...


*My name is FAITH BATE, I  just wanna thank you so much, I passed my CPNE last weekend 3/13/15-3/15/15 in Atlanta.

I couldn't be any happier!  with my lack of clinical experience, Robs Review was my sole teacher. I can never thank you enough, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Faith Bate.

*Hello! I passed on my first try in Madison, Wisconsin at St. Mary's hospital a couple weekends ago. I had to repeat two labs (the second day of testing

was the most stressful day of my life thus far) but didn't have to repeat any PCSs. Rob- thank you so much for your mneumonics! I used them all and they worked perfectly for everything I did. It's still sinking in. Thanks again for everything.

Here Are The Proven Secrets Of The CPNE That Every Student Needs...

If you don't yet "have it all memorized"... If you haven't learned the simple secrets to keep yourself organized...If you were never given a plan of action when you get to the CPNE test... and if you think that you'll be so nervous and out of your mind that you'll forget everything....

Then I've got good news: The RobsREVIEW program explains these simple secrets and how to understand them in record time. This 100% online learning  program is right for you IF:

  • You Feel Overwhelmed. You are going to feel overwhelmed (like I did) so I made you an ORGANIZATION and QUICK START GUIDE so you know WHAT to study, WHEN to study, and HOW to make it all come together so you PASS.
  • You're A VISUAL learner. You'll see videos of me doing ALL Areas Of Care and ALL Lab Sim Stations. Seeing is the FASTEST way to learn.
  • You Don't Have The Time. Instead of searching for free information here and there, you want something that is PROVEN and ACCURATE and will reduce your study time by 90%.
  • You Have Care Plan Troubles. You think you can write a great care plan but you're just not sure. You know the care plans are failing a lot of students and you DON'T want to be one of them.
  • You Have Performance Anxiety. The ONLY way to beat this is practice, but not just regular practice, it takes a special, mentally strengthening practice that I'll show you.

Here Are The Proven Study Habits That You Need  To Start NOW So You Won't Feel Confused And Frustrated...

Let's Face The Facts.

You know you need to get studying but you can't seem to find the time (Full Time Job - Kids - Husband / Wife). You know you need to find the motivation to drag yourself to understanding that 500 page study guide.



Nobody can fault you for that.

It's not that you don't have enough time, it's that when you DO have the time to study your eyes glaze over and your memory becomes cloudy because everything is so complex. The trick to learning something new is to make it easy to understand and simplify the entire content. If you can do that, learning becomes easy and effortless. The question is, "How do I simplify it and how do I find the motivation?"

 Here's The Cost Of Not Solving Your CPNE Problem...

It's not as cut and dry as failing the CPNE test and then coming back the next weekend to try again. Here is my example of what I personally went through. I do NOT want you to have to experience my pain. Here's the breakdown: 

$2,300 - Cost of CPNE test

$483 - Airfare

$212 - Hotel

$26,325 - Salary Increase from LVN to RN (annual)

$29,320 - TOTAL for 1 FAILURE!

(Unmeasurable) - Personal pain of Failing.

(Unmeasurable) - Pain of telling Friends/Family of failing.

(Unmeasurable) - Waiting 8-14 months for new test date.


Lesson Learned: DON'T FAIL!


 Is It Possible You Are ONE Test Away From Attaining Your Dreams...?

A student I talked to told me that she only needs to pass this ONE test to get what she's always wanted. 

I happen to think this is true.

But let's tone it down for just a bit...maybe believing you're ONE Test away from living the life of your dreams is a little too much of a stretch for you. 

Can you wrap your head around this though: You may very well be just ONE Test away from advancing your career, open doors to new opportunities you never knew existed AND give you job security as time progresses.

I've been an RN and I was an LPN and you and I both know that you're doing the same job for less money. Not only that, the RN's are getting better job offers and have set job security that should be YOURS!... I believe you are just ONE Test away.

Once you pass this test, you'll be able to...

  • Have better job security. Being an RN gives you the power to either stay or move up at your present location OR have numerous options for other positions that an LVN simply will never have.
  • Further advance your education. MANY students have gone on to get their Bachelor's Degree and Masters / Nurse Practitioner Degree. This is where you can really accelerate your career
  • Hold your head high. There is no greater feeling than having beaten something that at one point you thought was unbeatable. There are challenges in life we must all rise up to meet and when you pass this test, you'll feel like you've really accomplished something (because you have!)
  • Have the stress and weight off your shoulders. You may not realize it, but inside you are carrying around this constant thought that there is something you have to do; something that needs to be completed. Sometimes pressure creates diamonds, other times it just crushes.

 Warren Buffet said that you have to learn from mistakes, but they don't have to be YOUR mistakes. Learn From My Mistakes (my 1st CPNE attempt) And Success (my 2nd CPNE test).

Once you enroll you'll be prepared for... 

  • Understanding Why Some Students Pass And Others Fail. Let's be honest...some students WILL fail this test and the reason they fail are too numerous to count. You're going to get the "secret sauce" on what separates the triumphant student from the conquered one.
  • Perfection Direction and the 3 tools for Nursing Care Plans. Care plans are failing A LOT of students right now AND when you go to the school for advice you'll get conflicting information. We've reduced all that nonsense and gave you simple tools that just flat out work by giving you basic plans you can use over and over again.
  • The Rookie Mistakes Unprepared Students Make. If you had a destination in mind, what would you do? The rookie mistake is to not have a map and not ask for directions and just "hope it all works out". Don't make those same mistakes if someone already has the map and it's GUARANTEED to get you to your destination.
  • Understanding the 1 through 8 Week Study Dynamic. More than 50% of students waste their study time on the WRONG things. This program teaches you WHAT to focus on and for the right amount of TIME so there is no WASTED efforts (this cuts your OVERALL study time down by 90%)

Here's What's Included...

The RobsREVIEW program is a complete 100% online learning and doing system that teaches you not only how to pass the CPNE, but to get you ready to pass in the shortest amount of time possible with minimal frustration. 

The videos, techniques, tools and templates are yours, and you can use them to get you through this very difficult test. The only thing I ask is that you put in the time to make yourself successful.
