Filipinos who passed the CRNE..howd you do that?

Hi I am currently reviewing and preparing for the CRNE, like many others, I have already passed the NCLEX and also holds a valid Visa Screen, but due to retrogression and backlog in applications in the US, I gave up my American Dream and decided to apply in Canada instead. I have received my eligibility to take CRNE, and so I would like to ask for assistance from those who have passed the CRNE by answering the following questions:

1. Are CRNE questions like NCLEX? What are there difference?

2. What are the materials that you have used? Where can I have it? (any source, link, file sharing)

3. How many months did you study before taking the exam?

4. Your personal advice( i.e. maslows, abc, medications, areas to focus on?

5. Strategies that you used that ultimately helped you passed the exam?

Your answer would be very much appreciated as this will not only help me, many will benefit to.. Thank you..

Can only second what Dishes has said. Hundreds of threads on this.

Race or nationality has nothing to do with passing the exam. Preparedness is what matters.

I already did and found random discussions only. My questions are specific and much more of a survey. So kindly answer the questions please :)

As mentioned there have been many threads discussing CRNE and NCLEX.

As someone who has sat both I can say they are definitely different and involve different thinking strategies. I just used the standard CRNE prep guide from the CNA and did a couple of hours a day, taking my time so I could get used to how the question is structured and what it was asking. I also read the rationales/answers.

Thank you silverdragon. :) The thread "Filipinos who passed the NCLEX without the help of review centers" was started by me and has helped me and a lot of aspirants passed the exam. I hope that this thread will pursue as other threads about CRNE were already outdated while some were already closed. Thank you for sharing your views but I hope that many will contribute to this thread. Happy New Year :)

this thread is still open https://allnurses.com/canadian-nurses/crne-feb-2011-a-510723.html

I recommend you read joanna73's posts as she pretty much answers all of your questions. In addition to developing a study plan she also recommends the reading the following documents:

http://www.cno.org/Global/docs/prac/41034_Ethics.pdf

http://www.cno.org/Global/docs/prac/41007_Medication.pdf

http://www.cno.org/Global/docs/policy/41020_consent.pdf

http://www.cno.org/Global/docs/prac/41001_documentation.pdf

I recommend you add one more document to your pile of reading http://www.cno.org/Global/docs/reg/41037_EntryToPracitic_final.pdf

good luck with your studies

regards
