I currently work pre-op for cardiac & vascular surgery. I have been working for 2 years per diem but do have over 2,000 hours. I was wondering if the RN-BC would be a good certification for me to get? I've just started researching this and would be looking to certify within the year.
I've been on the ANCC website but am confused about the process. Do you apply and then set a testing date? Or do you apply after doing your prep work and then have 90 days to take the test? Also how do they check your eligibility?
Would another certification be better? I will be in my current position for another year but then will be job hunting again. I do wish to stay with cardiac nursing though. Thank you.
