    I took it at the end of December. I studied on and off for 3 months, more heavily the last 2 weeks before the test. I passed but just barely. It was 175 questions. The questions aren't tricky like the NCLEX, but you need to know the content pretty well. I used the book from AANN, bought the practice test, and my work sponsored a 2 day class, but I took that almost a year and a half before I took the test. I also have been working on a designated stroke unit for almost 3 years.

    I just took it in April and used the following to study:
    Stroke Certification study guide for nurses
    Fast facts for stroke care in nursing
    SCRN exam review course that was self-paced by MedEd

    Passed, thought I wouldn't pass during the exam but I did with a good buffer.
    The question were very similar to the first book I talked about.
    Good luck studying!

    Took it a couple of years ago and found fairly easy (compared to the CNRN!!).
    The AANN has a study book called "AANN Comprehensive Review for Stroke Nursing" is all you need. Good luck.

    I just took mine this week and passed. I used the Fast facts book and the Stroke Certification Study Guide.

    Do you receive a certificate in the mail or a pin?

    It's easier than both CCRN and CNRN.
