What can you tell me about the CAEN option for returning to nursing? I am looking at returning to nursing after being out for 5 years with my kids. I need to get my licence back as I was unable to keep up my hours. I am looking for any information on the CAEN option as it seems the most reasonable for me. But I'm feeling very unsure since there is little to no information about it anywhere! Is the exam like the NCLEX? Should I be studying? What is the lab like? What do I do to prepare? I have been a nurse for over ten years and practiced in acute care, ER, ICU, CCU, and OR. Now as I look at returning I'm unsure what to do to prepare. Can anyone help? Can anyone give me a little more information about the CAEN? Thanks!
