CNRN 2013

  1. 0 Hello,

    I am hoping to sit for the CNRN exam when it is next offered in March of 2013. I'm actually a bit surprised they only offer the test during defined widnows. I hold other nursing specialty certifications and I've never had to wait for a window to test before!

    I was wondering which are the most up to date and appropriate resources for review. I saw a similar thread on here but it looks to be pretty old, and I'm wondering if newer/better resources are now available.

    Currently my institution does not have any CNRN's. My clinical background is in critical care, trauma, and emergency nursing. I recently took a position as the coordinator of a stroke team, and would like to add this specialty certification to my list. I have not worked in a neuro-only setting at any point in my career, but working in critical and emergency care areas has afforded me years of experience with patients suffering from a variety of neurological and neurosurgical diagnoses. I'm hoping this is sufficient.

    Well, I took it yesterday... passed! It was the hardest teat I've ever taken for sure, especially compared to my other nursing certifications.
