Go to the AMSN website and purchase the books there. Their is a questionnaire book that resembles some of the test questions from the AMSN test.

The books were also used by those that took the ANCC as well.

Others used their med/surg books too.

Is the certification necessary and help you marketable with no experience? I'm a mental health tech eager to work in the med-surg unit as a pct and learn chart review and clincials. I have no acute experience. I'm open for any advice.

Med-Surg certification is for RNs only, not for PCTs.

The best thing is to keep applying.

I ordered the ANCC book from their website. I am getting ready to take the RN-BC Med Surg exam in a few months.
