I am being encouraged to get a nursing certification. My director has a goal to get a certain number of nurses "certified". I can push to take the CCRN, which I barely qualify for, or I can take the PCRN. I am currently working in a progressive care unit, but I used to work in an ICU. I have all the CCRN books I need to take that test. I am thinking why should I do all that studying and only go for a PCRN? Is there any advantage in having a PCRN over a CCRN? Do you guys think I need to buy new books if I go for PCRN? Or, I should just relax and enjoy my current FLUNKY certification, as there is no financial incentive to do either PCRN or CCRN.
