    Hi angelkat. The CRNE consists of multiple-choice questions only (choose one answer which you believe is the best among the four choices).

    To everyone who will be writing the exam next week, I wish you good luck.. =)

    hello... just want to ask.

    for those who want to take the CRNE where could they take the exam?
    is it available only in Canada? or there are other countries that offers you to get the CRNE?.... like in NCLEX?.....

    Did you read the responses in the other CRNE thread you've been posting to? Read the following: FAQ - The Canadian Registered Nurse Examination (CRNE) for answers to all of your questions. I'll reiterate... The CRNE is NOT the same as the NCLEX in any way.

    I wrote last year, and these are the tips i can give you..
    1. ALWAYS look for key words, especially in those questions where it seems that every answer could be right. For example, never "give advice". As soon as you see "give advice", the answer is immediately wrong. Look for "encourage" or "explore". I know prep books go over these kinds of tips...don't ignore them! Read them! They're useful.
    2. Read the questions. I woulds say about 70% of the test is in case study form. You will have a huge paragraph (seriously, about half the page) describing the pt situation, and approx 3-5 questions relating to that situation. Also, don't over think the questions. If it's not there, it's not happening! Read the question for what it is, and that is all!
    3. Remember what's in the scope of nursing practice.
    4. Remember the nursing process! Assess before planning or implementing anything .

    Good luck to us all! I write on Wednesday as well, and though it is pretty intimidating, I feel relax and pretty well prepared!

    Regarding the NCLEX I would also make a note to say that the units of measurement are different in the states, and they also use brand names for meds, as opposed to generic.

    I can't believe it's the day after tomorrow!! I've never been the type of person to study for exams and have always done very well (writing papers is a different story for me!), but I'm starting to feel a little anxious. I'm writing in Ottawa and have been doing the questions on the CD that came with the CNA prep guide and doing pretty well.

    There seems to be an emphasis on Maternity questions in this topic...have you heard there are a lot of questions like that? Especially the blood volume and weight gain questions?? If so, I guess I need to hit the Mat book pretty hard tonight!!

    I have heard from friends who took the test in the winter that there weren't very many maternity questions, and mostly they asked questions regarding post partum care for mom and baby; conditions to look out for, complications, etc.

    I don't think I would tend to focus TOO much on maternity, because I can't see it making up a huge part of the test. I'd say knowing your stuff is good, but not over doing it!
