Inpatient OB certification

  1. 0
    Hi all,
    I've been an OB/nursery nurse for almost 10 years, almost all of my nursing career....
    I want to take the test to become certified in Inpatient Obstetrics, and I'm looking for suggestions for material to study. I have "core curriculum for maternal-newborn nursing" and "williams obstetrics" books. I have looked on the website and noticed there are 4 different tests to take.......I guess I'm a little confused. Is it four different tests or all in one? it says "inpatient Obstetric nursing", "neonatal Intensive care nursing", "low risk neonatal nursing", and "maternal Newborn nursing"
    So, I guess my question is.....one test on all? And what are some good books to study from?

    thanks
    Nanci

    If you search the threads here you will find tons of answers to your question (it seems to be THE question) My suggestion if you have the resources is to take a review course.

    There are many certification exams. Inpatient OB is one.

    I used the candidate guide that NCC publishes along with Core Curriculum for Maternal-Newborn Nursing. If there was a topic I was unfamiliar with or fuzzy on I referenced the book. I didn't take a review course and felt the exam content was very manageable. I had about 4.5 years of L&D experience when I took the exam.

    I took the inpatient obstetrics exam, because I work in L&D and only rarely float to postpartum.

    Thanks,
    Question, is the candidate guide what they send you when you apply? Or is it something you can get online?
    I do have that book.
    Thanks again
