Well, I'm finally going to do it!!

  1. bite the bullet, cough up the cash and attempt the CCRN :selfbonk:

    For those of you who have taken the CCRN...what study guides did you use in preparation for the test?? I have a CCRN study guide and test question guide....are there any other helpful materials out there?? I didn't order the audio tapes, dvd's, etc.....kind of pricey.....but are they USEFUL?? and worth the cost??

    Thanks in advance....and wish me luck!!

    There are review classes available every so often; they're normally 2 days long. I went to one; it was a pretty good experience.

    I used the Laura Gasparis Vonfrolio Tapes. Pass CCRN has a great CD-Rom with a lot of questions on it. The book is OK but it goes into a LOT of overwhelming detail. Know your hemodynamics! Know your Swan readings! I had a LOT of these types of questions when I took my exam this past March! Good luck to you!

    Without a doubt....take the Laura Gasparis Vonfrolio review class. She also has videos and cassette tapes with the same materials. She is very smart and interesting to hear. Her website is greatnurses.com.

    I wasn't able to take the Laura Gasparis Vonfrolio classes. I used "Pass CCRN" and took the review offered at the 'Trends in Critical Care Nursing' conference (I took the test at the end of the week). I tested and passed last year. http://www.aacn.org/Chapters/sepa.ns...C_Brochure.pdf
