I thought about buying the ANCC book, too, but I had people recommend that Pass CCRN! book to me so I decided to buy that instead.

I hope to take the PCCN exam sometime by the end of the year. I haven't stared studying for it, yet, unfortunately. Haven't even purchased a study-book for it yet. UGH!
I've had co-workers attend lectures by Dr. Laura Gasparis before. They LOVED her lectures and found them to be quite helpful as they studied for the CCRN exam. Many, many moons ago, I actually talked to her on the phone. We tried to get her involved with a musical that was written back in 1996/1997. She was very gracious and offered much encouragement as we continued on with the production and promotional aspect of this project. Unfortunately, she had scheduling conflicts and didn't have the time to be in the show (so she said). She's a very cool person.
Good luck with your study as you prepare yourself for the PCCN exam. This thread that you just started is challenging me to get on with my studies! UGH! LOL!
Cheers. . .
I hope to take it by the end of this year, too! Right now I'm reading the entire review of the Pass CCRN! book and I'll probably read through it again...I'm also doing the practice questions on the CD.
Perhaps attending Dr. Laura Gasparis' lecture will be beneficial to me
She's got a session near me on June 6th-7th. It costs $200 though, if I register by a certain date.
Thank you and good luck, too! I think we should start a support thread! Or perhaps a random PCCN fact-throwing thread
