So, I'm trying to get into an ED position and well, i have to prove myself and the only way to do that and stand out is to get more certifications. I am looking into ENPC courses (the hospital I want is pediatric certified) and for the life of me I can't figure out which book I need. The top part of the page that describes the course states that the book says I will be sent is "the 4th edition ENPC book". The bottom of the same page says $XXX is the price if I already have the TNCC 6th edition book...so it's more money to pay for the class and receive the book they want me to have, and cheaper to take the class if I have a different book? A friend who also took the course (through anther place) received the ENPC book.
It's about $70 more expensive to pay for the course and have the book sent to me...which isn't a big deal, but if I can save something that would be nice. I've looked up prices for the TNCC 6th edition book on Amazon, new it's $195 and used its $35----what?!?!? What's going on? Are there online videos or some thing that come with the cost of the book?
I'm terribly confused! I called the place that does the course and left a message so I'm waiting for a call back. What book(s) did you buy/receive? Which is better?
I do also plan on taking TNCC, so if that book includes BOTH Peds/Adults and is good for both classes I'd rather buy ONE book and spend a little more than buy two and pay an arm and a leg.
And yes, I know there are some that will say to wait to take the test until I get hired---BUT I am a good test taker. And I know there are others that will say "all that shows is that you can take a test"....well I think it also shows I have initiative, drive and desire.
(I tried to check my spelling, but I'm using my phone so please forgive any errors)
