    No. I'm specifically referring to the CNA exam prep guide for the CRNE. This is the one you need to commit to memory. You can either purchase the guide directly from the CNA website, or take it out of the library.

    Hi I'm hearing a lot about do as many questions as possible but my question is other than cna prep, readiness online test, prep courses, lippincott mosby comprehensive and practice, where can I find more questions? I find that cna and mosby are not always consistent. Wouldn't keep practicing questions that are not recognized by cna be confusing to you?

    Go to your fundamentals texts: Potter and Perry's, Koizer et al etc. Do every question at the end of each chapter spending particular attention to the health and wellness sections.

    edit added: @ Pantoronto Please see this link for the CNA compentencies you should be using as a study outline. You WILL have at least one question covering each competency.

    Practising questions is only one component. You need to actually study and understand the content you've covered years 1-4. Aside from Potter and Perry, get a maternal/child textbook, AND read the Mosby's Guide to the CRNE. Mosby's contains additional questions. You need to cover all your bases.

    Hello. I just want to ask if you CNO allowed you to take the CRNE using your Philippine Nursing Education? I want to talk to you personally because its really important. I was assessed by cno last april 2010. I was refuse to take crne because my education is not in ontario. I even passed our local boards and NCLEX. I have passed also my experience as nurse but still they don't allow me to take the boards. Can you give me your email so I can ask you a few questions. you can email me anytime at dc_xclusve@hotmail.com>>>>>> pls email me. Im so depressed because they want me to study another 2 years in able for me to practice as a nurse. thanks so much.

    Hi my name is Dianne. I am a nurse in the Philippines but they refuse my application as a nurse. Can I call so you can advise my base on what you have done in able to give a eligibility. Thanks. my number is *****. I really appreciate your help. Please email or call me. I'm so depress about the result of my assessment. my email is dc_xclusve@hotmail.ca I live in Scarborough Ontario.

    The college should have give a reason to why they deemed you not eligible to sit CRNE. The only thing open to you if you wish to work as a nurse is meet the requirements as set out by the college.

    What is most probable is that your Philippines nursing education is not equivalent to Canadian nursing education and the only way to fix that is to go back to school. There's no magic wand that can change your eligibility. And if CNO has refused you then all the other provinces will too because there's a single standard across the country.

    Goodluck to all of you!!! Always remember to keep in mind the competencies for RN. It will really really help you to answer the questions correctly since most of them are psychosocial types of questions. And also, TIME! TIME! TIME! 4hours is not enough for 200 questions, so you need to read it fast as you can but with analysis and critical thinking. I still remember when I wrote the Feb 2012 exam, I only have 5mins left before the time-off and I wasn't able to review it again all through-out. God is good i passed...

    Just Pray! Dream! and Believe and you will PASS and survive!! Good luck future colleagues.
