So I had been reading areas of this website for the past couple weeks prior to taking a review course through med-ed, which was pretty good, alot of info in two days! I had also been reviewing questions on the AACN core review cd (which is also good, and is pretty close to the actual test questions). I have been a nurse for about 3 years and I have been in the ICU for a little over a year. I have learned alot and I still have alot more too learn. I took my CCRN exam today, I finished in plenty of time 25 mins left. So I went back to review questions that I wasn't sure about and changed a few answers (which I probably shouldn't have). I got an 87 (needed a 89 as many of you are aware). I felt ok going in but I defiantly need to improve in the cardiac section (56%). I should have better known more of the signs and symptoms, and the ionotropic and chronotropic drugs. But not too bad being that I'm only a one year ICU nurse, right!?! I will be relocating from VA to Birmingham AL. I will be working at UAB's CTICU. I thought having my CCRN would prepare me for going into this new job (nervous and excited) . Anyways I felt as though I was pretty close, just looking for some reassurance and any advice anyone would be willing to share.
