NRP 6th or 7th For RNC?

  1. I have been working my first nursing job in a level III NICU for 2 years. I plan to enter an online RN to MSN program in a year. Before I do that, I'd really like to get my RNC.

    Rather than taking practice tests and studying on just my weak points, I am studying every single subject on the test outline. I am currently going down the list of subjects and making notes in a way that is very easy for me to review. It seems figuring out exactly what I want to study takes the most time.

    So far I have Mernenstein&Gardner, STABLE learner, STABLE Cardiac and assessment books. I plan on using Watson, Roglet&Brorsen. I also have printed slides that were material required for unit testing as part of orientation on Maternal/Fetal and all systems.
    I have access to both recent editions of NRP to borrow from my unit educator, but am trying to decide if I should be studying 6th or 7th in relation to RNC-NIC exam.
    Any recommendations?

    I have mapped out my study time and can seriously to commit to 35 hours a week. I am hoping to be able to test in a year. Any advice would be appreciated!

    NRP doesn't really have too much on the test. Whichever you used for work should be fine. We don't even touch it in our review classes at work.
