RNC Review Course

  1. Would anyone be interested in taking an RNC review course in Dallas, TX for the RNC-NIC?

    Methodist Dallas is working along with March of Dimes to put on a 3 day Review Course in November. The cost will be around $300 - $350. I will have more details soon if anyone is interested.

    I would love to know more. I have been looking for a review course to help me prepare for the NICU RNC exam forever, but haven't found anything in the Texas. The price sounds about right for a 3 day course. How many CE's are there?

    Yes there are CE's. Here is a little info:

    I am so happy to have found this!! I just attempted my exam, and failed. I'm very disappointed in myself, but I didn't really study that much. I had given up on trying again...until I found this. A review course sounds great, much better for me than trying to go at it on my own. So, I think I'm gonna try again. If you have any pointers on the exam, I would greatly appreciate anything!! Thanks for posting!!!

    Postings easy - you're welcome. I've heard the course is great from some nurses that have taken it in other places. They say it made all the difference in them passing. I'm personally really excited about taking the course and then sitting for the RNC-NIC exam.

    Best of luck to you and I'm glad to hear you're not giving up.

    I've signed up for this review course, but does anyone know of an inexpensive hotel in the area? All the hotels listed look a little expensive.

    I'm just a nursing student, but this thread brought up memories >.>
    My mom used to work at Methodist Dallas about 3-4 years ago when I was in middle school!
    I'm going to look at that March of Dimes website just for the heck of it, though.
    I'll be moving back to Texas as soon as I graduate (:

    i’m not sure what price range you are looking for, but you might try the candlewood suites dallas/market center. i think they have a shuttle that can take you to methodist dallas. here is their contact info:
    7930 north stemmons freeway
    dallas, tx 75247 united states

    hotel front desk number: 214-631-3333

    Thanks for the info. I didn't check into the shuttle because I'll have my own car. They do have rooms starting at $59.99 a night and this is much closer to my budget.

    i also forgot to say it's only about 9 miles away for methodist dallas. i'm pretty sure this is where i'll stay unless someone can tell of a closer/cheaper hotel. any help would be helpful. my budget is tight, but i really want to take this course. i'm hoping it will help me pass the rnc exam first time. i'd also appreciate any tips anyone has for studying or taking the exam.
