CRNE format for next year exam 2008

  1. Hi guys,

    Does anyone know the format of the CRNE next year. I would like to know if the exam will only be multiple choice or are they going to include again the short answer questions?

    I am planning to take the exam next June.

    I would like also to buy used Mosby's book (2nd edition) or any Prep guide book. Where can i buy those books? Anyone selling?

    Ta.

    Hi,

    as I knew (but not 100% sure) I read from somehwere that on Feb exam will be 100% multiple choice. the book you want to study you can order online from CNA or the hospital bookstore such as the ottawa hospital or you can check on mosby online I guess "elvis" or spell something. you can search on internet. they ship to your door. I order from them,too.
    Hope it helps,

    Hi

    Can you tell me the exact title in Mosby to prepare for the CRNE? Is it helpful reading this? What about Ethics?

    name of the book is:
    "Mosby's canadian comprehensive review of nursing " i foud their multiple questions are very helpful.

    as for ethics, i live in ontario and download " Compendium of Standards of Practice for Nurses in Ontario" for free from CNO website.

    http://www.cna-nurses.ca/CNA/nursing...default_e.aspx This is the exam guide recommended to me. I'm going to a seminar next week for preparation to write the exams. I'll post any other books they recommend.

    Here is the original posting from CNA:
    Important New Information

    Please note the LeaRN CRNE Readiness Test currently contains 85 multiple-choice and 15 short-answer questions. Your results on the multiple-choice questions and short-answer questions will be displayed separately and combined for your overall score.

    From February 2008 to February 2010 the CRNE will contain only multiple-choice
    questions and will not include short-answer questions. Therefore, during this time 15% of the current Readiness Test will use a format that is not used on the CRNE. The
    competencies tested using the short-answer format in the Readiness Test will be tested on the CRNE, but the test will be presented in a multiple-choice format only and will not
    include questions in a short-answer format.
