    Passed at Chambersburg this weekend!!! Rob’s method of teaching made the most sense to me. His videos were super helpful. His mnemonics were easy to remember and followed all of the critical elements. He was so supportive through it all. Responded to texts in minutes!! Video chatted with me when I wasn’t sure. I am so grateful for Rob to put this together for us and I will highly recommend him to my fellow cpner’s 😀 best of luck to everyone!!!

    Rob's Review is what made a pass possible for me. All of the information is easy to understand and reproduce, which for this test is a necessity.

  • Robs review makes crazy amount of things you have to know for CPNE the simplest as possible. I wouldn't know how to do, what to do, what I need to know.... to prepare for the test if I didn't join to Rob's. He answers all questions you have and very quick to respond to it. I highly recommend his program to whom wants to pass CPNE.

    Robs review makes the cpne do able. His mnemonics make it so much easier. He preps you for the whole test very well. I passed the cpne my first try.

    The videos are very helpful. I particularly liked the virtual workshop, as it brought things together. I am a whole-to-part visual thinker, so seeing the end result helps me know how the pieces fit together better.

    RobsReview helped me pass the Excelsior CPNE. I couldn't have done it without his personal one on one. He is always available to answer questions and words of encouragement. His program is very thorough, easy to follow, and always looking for ways to improve to help all tribe members. There is not a time limit from when you purchase to when you test. I used his program for practically a year before I tested. It is well worth the money plus the personal one on one is priceless. I have recommended this program to numerous other students who didn't pass the CPNE first time around. My suggestion is do this program early before you test and you will pass the first time around if you follow his schedule. This comes from someone who passed first attempt - now studying for NCLEX and apply for my RN job. Rob you are the best and thank you for all you do for us tribe members. I will always be grateful for all the time and effort you put into making us successful plus maintain your personal life.

  • His review contains all the information necessary to pass the CPNE successfully. It is well-organized and includes updates any time they are necessary to the content. Rob makes himself available for questions, care plan reviews, tribe meetings where you can ask questions, and gives out his personal cell number and encourages you to call/text whenever you need to. He is quick to respond and happy to do so. He truly wants you to be successful and will do whatever he needs to to ensure that happens.

    I am Glad I choose him at the begining of the month when I got approved for my CPNE. This program is great for visual Learners like me. Thanks Rob, I would say, it's 10 out of 10 Stars. Not 5 out of 5. So, Think about it guys....

  • Rob’s “silly” mneumonics helped me to be organized during the cpne. I woke up day one without remembering anything not even my name!!! I thought I would might as well go home.. but I was already there so off I went to my labs.. as soon as the time started I dumped (wrote)all my mneumonics on my form.. passed! second day did the same thing... passed! Third day... passed! Don’t get me wrong, I passed by studying relentlessly but when crunch time came and I had a mental block, I visualized the cartoons that came with the mneumonics and it made sense! Put in the work, don’t just memorized the mneumonics.. it is really well written and thought off based on the cpne guide so read the guide with it. Thank you Rob!

    I’m a procrastinator and waited until 3 weeks before my CPNE to study for it. Thanks to Rob I passed this past weekend. The mnemonics were easy to remember and they are fail proof. The two minute templates for care plans were perfect. I actually highlighted in my nanda book the info from his two minute templates and didn’t have any problems with my care plan. This test is very doable!

  • I just passed the NSL portion of the CPNE yesterday and Rob’s Review videos and mnemonics helped me tremendously! I could remember things during the high stress moments. Would definitely recommend this program to anyone and everyone trying to pass the CPNE. Thank you Rob!

    Where do I even begin? I guess this is a fitting question, because prior to finding your program, I wasn’t even sure what the CPNE entailed or what I was going to do to get started. I stumbled across your website with a silly search, probably something along the lines of “how many souls must I sacrifice to pass this test?” I found you, in your white lab coat and your soothing voice and demeanor, and immediately was hooked. Made my payment and got to work. I was successful on both the NSL and PCS areas as I had taken a split pilot offer, and I was free from even a single repeat between either part.

    I attribute my success solely to your program and how well it is organized and how clear and concise your information is. Where others add in many clinical variations of how to do or document something, you stick to the study guide and explain it as it’s expected of us to perform. Your mnemonics are fun and easy to remember, yet they are the entire reason I passed. I would like to take a little of the credit because I did exactly what you said, trust in the program, put in the time, and reap the benefits, but the credit is nearly all yours, my man!

    Trusting in my grid as you teach us to, and using your mnemonics for not only performing tasks but documenting them, was the reason I am sitting here waiting for ATI to start. They couldn’t find a thing to ask me, a thing to question, or a procedure that they could challenge. My care plans were solid, my techniques as flawless as shaky hands could make them, and my documentation impeccable.

    You led me and so many people to the promised land after the struggle that is Excelsior College’s LPN-RN program and I think I speak for all of us when I say THANK YOU. Over and over again.

    I wasn’t kidding, if you’re ever in NJ, let me know, we’re going drinking(on me)!!!!!!

    Thanks Rob, for failing. Without you, I would have never come anywhere near achieving my goal.

    Robs Review is hands down the most amazing program! Without his help I never would have been able to slay the beast! His mnemonics told a story which made them so easy to remember! His 2 minute templates for care plans helped more than I can ever explain! He took the time to respond to every text, email, and question that I had, with in a very timely manner! A+++ Thank you Rob!!

  • Very helpful nemonics and videos. Rob is super easy to contact if you have any questions or concerns. The Tribe Meetings are helpful for review and claifying concepts. The bottom line is that Rob wants you to succeed as much as you want to succeed! To your success!

    I highly recommend Robs Review! The mnemonics match up with the critical elements, and he breaks down the careplans for you. There are videos that break down the AOC’s and he gives examples of what teaching you can do with the patient. I wouldn’t have passed without his mnemonics! During second PCS, I looked back at my notes and realized my caprefill wasn’t checked off. Needless to say, I ran back in to check it. If not, I would’ve failed. Sign up and take advantage!

    I just had basically one on two tutoring with him and another person and he just made me feel so confident with all that I know. He answered all our silly questions and had so much patience. I take my test in about a little over a month and a half and I know with his website and all the feedback I get from him.....I AM READY

    Rob is a great teacher. He wants you to understand the material and He wants you to pass. It’s not about the money with Rob. His virtual workshops are amazing. I never thought I could learn anything through a virtual anything. But I have to say it’s well worth it. I know I’m going to pass and it’s mostly because of Rob. Thank you!

    I give Rob's Review 5 stars! There is so much information to know to pass the CPNE, and even though you can get it all on the school portal, Rob breaks it down, makes it digestible, gives you tools to easily remember the details when the nerves kick in, and works with you to reach the ultimate goal; a huge pass, 1st try with no repeats !!
    Thanks Rob!!!

HOW do I LEARN everything and REMEMBER it all?

If you don't yet "have it all memorized"... If you haven't learned the simple process to keep yourself organized...If you were never given a plan of action when you get to the test site... 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 this simple process in a STRUCTURED and ORGANIZED way so you can understand everything in MINIMAL 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.

My Personal Experience of Failing The *CPNE Test...

It's not as cut and dry as failing this 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 the clinical exam 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!
