    look about two thirds down the topics page on the flight and transport nursing forum and you will find a topic called "what steps do I need to take to become a flight nurse?" This should point you in the right direction.

    good luck

    Just an FYI

    Case Western University in Cleveland Ohio has a Flight nurse program where you can receive your NP in adult acute care or critical care and flight nurse certification. Pretty neat check it out. If I were single I'd be there!

    as with all advice - use, peruse or refuse!

    Hi there, I am a flight nurse in Ohio and am currently studying for the CFRN exam. The exam is very tough and a group of us are studying together. As for the "Flight Nursing" class at Case in Cleveland. The class is part of the Critical Care Nursing Masters that they offer, it is not a Masters in Flight Nursing. We (co-workers) have looked into this class and that is what we have found out. Thanks!
