- 0Aug 19, '13 by Suri08Hello,
I have been a registered nurse in the Critical Care for a few years and would like to take my CCRN in the next few months. Anyone else preparing? I remember reading here a few years back their was a recommended coarse to take/study, to assist in passing. I am going to start this month and register to take the test in September or October. I hope to be ready to take by the middle of October or so. I finished my BSN a few months ago and am ready to take the next step.
Thank you in advance for your input.

- 0Aug 19, '13 by meanmaryjeanI took the PEDS CCRN in February and this was my plan of attack:
AACN sells an online review course, which was six, two-hour modules. After reading the Core Curriculum, I self-designed a week-long 'boot camp'. I studied one module per day for six days and took the exam on the seventh!
The KEY for me was scheduling the exam- so I could not back out.
meanmaryjean MSN, RN-BC, CCRN!
- 0Aug 30, '13 by TammyGI recently took the CCRN and relied heavily on the Laura Gasparis tapes, "CCRN Review Cram." I read about it on Allnurses.com. I think she could teach a new grad to pass the test, the tapes are that good. The only other thing I did was pay $25 to subscribe to the question bank associated with the Pass CCRN book (I did not buy the book itself) so I had a lot of questions to practice with. For $25, you get 1300 questions will full rationale. I think that, the longer you've been in CCU, the easier the test will be. I passed pretty easily, 103/125 questions. Passing score was 89.
