    Well, INS recommends that before you sit for the CRNI exam, you have at least 1600 hours of documented IV therapy experience in the two years proceeding and show a proficiency in dealing with CVC management and care.
    So as a new grad, get some experience under your belt before you sit for this one (Certified Registered Nurse Infusion). I would get ACLS and PALS.
