Your advice has been informative and at the same time humbling.....
I forgot who it was that said "the smarter you become, the more you realize you don't know", but ya'll have opened my eyes in more ways than I can count.
So kudos to all of you..............the question I ask (after doing a site serach) is: Is it possible to prepare, take and pass the CCRN exam in one year's time. I know there is a 1500 hour bedside requirement. With a 36 hour shift week, (no extra shifts) that is logically approx 42 weeks in duration. So, it would appear that it is possible, but as always real life doesn't follow logic............so I await your experienced advice on this.
Thank you in advance

Yes, it is possible as long as you get the needed hours in. However I will caution you that it is a lot of material to learn in such a short period of time. That would be a huge goal to accomplish. Congratulations on having the ambition to think ahead to the CCRN exam!

Thank you oMerMero.........I usually do plan ahead........for something things years in advance, but for the CCRN, I'm planning on doing it in a year so I've started studying now for when I take the test in a 1.5 years. But it's good to know that it IS doable.
