I just started in oncology med-surg unit, will have 1750 hours in 10 months. Am I eligible to take CCRN exam in the future? Do I must work on ICU to be eligible to take CCRN exam?
Yes, you can take the CCRN. Aside from the required 1,750 hours in direct care of acutely/critically ill patients during the previous 2 years, there is no mandate that they must be obtained in any particular unit.
CCRN is Critical Care RN. Onc is its own specialty, I do not think it would qualify as a Critical Care RN. You would need to work in the ICU,
