Med/Surg certification HELP!

  1. 0 I did not pass the ANCC med/surg certification exam. And they are channging the exam content starting April 6.

    Is it a bad idea to maybe just take the CMSRN instead of the ANCC one? I don't know what to do.

    Sorry you did not pass the exam. Did you take any study course?

    I guess you could try the CMSRN exam, but they both have the same pass rate at 80%, do you think it's easier? (not said in a snarky tone, honestly asking!)

    ETA: What is changing in the exam and how did you find this out?

    The sample questions seem different from the website of the CMSRN and ANCC...and the CMSRN seems more med/surg like and questions that I actually reviewed for. A friend of mine said that the instructor at the review course she went to did say something like that about the CMSRN. I took a reviewed course a few months ago.

    On the ANCC website it says that they are changing the content.Medical Surgical Nurse - American Nurses Credentialing Center - ANCC

    I checked out the link. Those questions are the updated ones, correct? They look different to me, more like the CMSRN.
