New CCRN exam?

  1. I am looking at the AACN website and it appears that the CCRN exam has changed.
    According to the website: "The CCRN certification examination will NOT be available at AMP assessment centers between the dates of Monday, May 17, 2004 and Friday, July 9, 2004. Eligibility periods will be extended to allow exam candidates an actual 90 days to schedule and sit for the CCRN exam. Computer based testing will resume on Monday, July 12, 2004, with the revised, 150-question, 3-hour CCRN exam."
    So is that content different? Anyone know anything about this?

    Don't worry. Prepare as you were for the exam. I currently am an Item writer for the exam and as I can't give specifics, the content will be weighed the exact same. Questions are frequently looked at and revised with equal and statistical weighed criteria. Plain English, some questions aren't so good and have to be replaced with new content or questions are outdated and have to be replaced with current practice standards. Relax and you will do fine

    The percentage of content per section may change, but the scope of questions should not. It's all the same critical care information we have known and "loved" for years.
