Hello cardiac nurses,
i am looking for anyone who has review materials for the aacn cmc/csc test. I am honestly looking for material directly from aacn. I have the material from med ed seminars but would love another look perspective. If you have these materials please pm me. Thanks in advance!!!!

Cardiac Surgery Essentials for Critical Care Nursing by Hardin and Kaplow for the CSC Exam. Not officially endorsed by AACN, but I read the book cover to cover (didn't take long, like 3 weeks) and passed the test with flying colors. I work in a high acuity 30 bed CVICU for over a year when I took the test (at my 2 year mark now) and I learned a lot reading the book. It's paperback, easy to read, and sticks to the essentials of Cardiac Surgery. Basically takes you from pre-op to all the different complications you can face post surgery. Also has review questions at the end of each chapter and case studies which I found helpful. An EXCELLENT resource!! Got it on Amazon
for 50 bucks
