are there any certification tests that can be taken besides the ccrn for competency in cardiovascular, pulmonary and renal systems? and how would i find the info to prepare and take the competency test. i would like to be knowledgeable in this area with a certificate/test to confirm at least the basics. thanks in advance.

Why would you not just take the CCRN?

Depending on where you live, check out community colleges and see what they have to offer in "on line learning". For example, our local college offers the 2 below in Toronto.
Coronary Care level 1. (Intro. to heart, functions, rhythms, etc)
Coronary Care level 2. (More advanced, discuss heart blocks, etc)
Sometimes, just do a search for online learning, and be specific in what you are interested in. You will have to check each college and see what they have available.
Hope this helps.
