hello fellow peds nurses,
I work doing pediatric hospice and my boss is pushing for us to all get the CHPPN (certified hospice and palliative-pedatric nurse) cert.
1. I have worked almost exclusivly with medically fragile kiddos. The website says perinatal, infants, children, teens and young adults with life limiting illnesses. It is my inclination that medically fragile kiddos (vent dependant, TBIs, MRCP, ect) would easily fall into this catagory. My worry is that it will focus on the more acute side of things (ie, hem/onc) and I will be clueless as to what they are asking.
Which brings me to my second question...
2. Have any of you taken this? What were the questions like? Do you know of any review books for the CHPPN? I know there are some for CPN (working on that too) but it seems that the HPPN would be more specific.
Happy weekend off to everyone that is not working this weekend, and if you are, I feel you
