WHAT’S INCLUDED WITH THE WORKSHOP

One thing you can always expect is a quality workshop. Our 2 day workshop includes learning material for all of the required areas during the clinical weekend with Mock Practice.

1) A workshop teaching manual provided for you at the workshop ($70 VALUE)

2) “Free” Critical Elements teaching Video ($48 VALUE)

3) “Free” month in the Online Care planning workshop with live discussion after your attendance at the workshop. ($65 VALUE)

4) Theory and hands on training in all areas tested on at the clinical exam with Carry home Practice.

5) Practice Simulation Homework with all of your paperwork individually graded for clarity and understanding.

6) Lab practice time ( Practice is optional and students are NOT required to stay for it. Manikins provided just like the one’s used at the real Clinical Performance Nursing Exam at the Charlotte site only.)

7) Practice PCS to take home to send back later for evaluation.

8) There are other available proven products for purchase, should you have concerns about weak areas.

9) “Free” email & phone consulations with all questions answered right up to the day before your clinical weekend. (I am sorry; I can’t speak to you during your clinical weekend. Excelsior College® considers this unethical and they also deem it as cheating. I have been informed by the college anyone found to be discussing their test with anyone during the testing weekend will be in violation of the academic honesty policy and dismissed from the program! Don’t risk your dream by doing this with anyone!)

10) When attending the workshop, we have several manikins that you may use to practice on.
