Hi fellow Neuro nurse,
I took the exam and passed it almost a year ago. I used the book CNRN Exam Secrets Study Guide purchased on Amazon
and I highly recommend it. It is a good jump off point to make you aware of what you don't know and should. Each chapter has some review questions and the answer key gives a great explanation of why this is right and why that is wrong. Because the explanations brought up more questions for me, I paired up my study with Neuroscience Nursing, third edition, written by Ellen Barker—which by the way reads like a true textbook and is not written in outline form.
Like I mentioned, the CNRN study guide will get you thinking in the right direction.
If I remember they give you four hours for the exam and I exited with 15 minutes to spare—
I took NCLEX over 30 plus years ago… this exam reads just like the NCLEX questions so be careful with what the questions are asking… the most important, the correct statement, which of the following best characterizes etc..
I really didn't know if you want specifics but if you do, I can go into more detail. Just wanted to reply quick, to let you know you are not being ignored.
