I am scheduled to take the CCRN exam the 29th of March. Using Pass CCRN! and AACN review book. If anyone has used these books can u tell me if these books are any good to use for the exam? If anyone has taken exam recently can u tell me how the exam was? Very nervous!

I found the Pass CCRN CD to be extremely helpful.

Years ago, I took Dr. Laura Gasparis Vonfrolio's 2-day live CCRN review.

She was absolutely AWESOME!

I'm not sure if she still teach the course, she is fun, dynamic, and knows how to explain difficult concepts into a fun, memorable ways.

Good luck to you,

Ellen

I used the PASS CCRN and Laura Gasparis CD's they really helped, but what helped the most was the PASS CCRN questions that came on the disc. A week before the test I paid to take the sample test from AMP, the people that provide the testing. I actually got three questions verbatim from that test, and about seven from the pass CCRN. The test is not as hard as everyone thinks; have the battle is reading the question. Good luck to anyone interested in taking it!

I work in the ER and in am CEN certified. I have never worked a shift in the ICU, but i am also CCRN certified. I found the "pass ccrn" book useful.If you know your patho, then you should be fine, as the ccrn is basically a detailed pathophysiology test.

I'm studying for CCRN, currently using PASS CCRN and Laura G CDs. BUT does anyone have any suggestions for studying hemodynamics? The pacep.org site is no longer available. Also, any good podcasts out there? I have a LONG commute and like podcasts for extra learnin'.

Many thanks for any suggestions!!
