Got some questions!??? For those of you who are CNE how did you study for certification? Has it been worth it to becoming certified? I work parttime and they have recently changed the requirements to become certified so until I can leave my ICU position and work fulltime I figured that becoming certified would increase my chances of being hired. I currently work as a clinical instructor for a BSN program parttime and in the ICU fulltime. I want to know where to spend my time studying so I don't waste a lot of time. Any and all comments would be appreciated! Thanks...

I took the CNE Exam last year and quite frankly, I didn't find it very difficult (however I had just completed my MSN in Nursing Education).
I studied using the Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) Review Manual by Wittmann-Price, Godshall, andWilson (I read the 1st edition and it is now in its 2nd edition). Each chapter of the CNE ReviewManual has review questions. I also did the Self-Assessment Examination (SAE) available from the National League for Nursing.
After doing these two things, I found I was weak in the Teaching/Learning Theories area and in Test/Item Analysis area. I went back and reviewed these two things. That was enough for me.
I hope you go for it. Good luck!
