After 17 years in NICU, I've finally decided to take the certification test.
I'm taking a review class in April and will take the computer test, not written.
Does anyone have any tips on studying for it? Areas which you felt were toughest? or perhaps not covered well enough in the review materials?
I appreciate the help. If I pass, the hosp will pay (yay).

If you have the BSN I'd do the RNC, but I don't and need the CCRN to complete a clinical requirerment. It does take more credits to renew the CCRN, I think the cost the same to take.
Maybe even some hospitals prefer one from the other....in our hospital they are wanting the transport nurses to have the RNC.
I'm confused here. I don't think you have to have a BSN to sit for RNC exam, just minimum experience requirement. Anyone know for sure?
Edited to add: Answered my own question. It is not required. Just need 2 years of experience sometime during your career with employment in the specialty area within the last 2 years.
