Pccn

  1. I am taking the PCCN test on monday and am pretty nervous. I am the only one taking it on my floor and feel kinda alone! i took a review course and am listening to lecture cds. Does anyone have any good advice?! and if i pass (hopefully) will this actually benefit me?

    Hey rngrl...I took the PCCN not too long ago so I can give a little advice. I studied my nursing med surg book. I know it sounds awful. But I just went through the list of items from the PCCN review list and looked up these topics. I really think that is what helped me the most. Also I listened to some review cd's which were great. Type in a search for "PCCN". A couple of us had some discussions some time back about it. Good luck!!!

    I did the same as limabean. I was the first on our unit and hospital to take this exam. After I did, they set up a class allowing only ten in (and they paid for their exam-not mine though).
    This WAS a difficult test, but so worth the time, effort and expense expended!
    There are now four of us on the unit who can put those credentials behind our name.
    I am so PROUD!
    Good luck..and, oh, I am now studying to take the CMC and expect to take this exam probably in January (just prior to my yearly review).
    Does anyone have any tips for the CMC? I bought the review course, and also read the latest journal articles on the four subjects.
    And of course, have the old stand by Med-Surg books on hand.
    Thanks
