I want to get my CMC certification (Cardiac Medicine Certification). I can't find much information about the best way to study for it. What materials have helped others?
The only thing I did was the review course on the AACN website. CArdiac Nurse/ CMC review course. I got 62/75; you need 52/75 to pass.
I purchased the $60 CNEA's review questions by Carol Jacobson, which is who made the AACN CMC review. I hope that is enough. There is 700 questions or so. It would be nice to have that review class but didn't want to fork out more for the review class than the cost of the certification exam.
The handbook lists very clearly what info is covered. I didn't really study as I had many years in cardiac when I took it, but I recall many questions about STEMI, NSTEMI, IABP, PA cath readings, cardiac pharm
