    Chapters promote the speciality of Medical Surgical nursing. Go to the website and contact someone. We have monthly meetings with presentations done by members r/t M/S. We do fundraising, give scholarships for the certification exam as well as off setting the cost of attending the National Convention. We do a one day education seminar with CEs attached. Take your exam and then we'll talk. Good Luck

    Any tips on study materials? I got a review book but its very blah. I am thinking I might be better off with review questions, but not sure if I should buy the book ones, or pay the 50 bucks for the online ones.
