    Anyone have information on where they did their CE credits? I am just starting to look into the certification.

    I took just the Certification Exam. In preparation, I read the scope and standards and purchased and studied the Mometrix test secrets /study guide. I took many sample tests and thought I was ready. However, I did not pass....by just a few points. To me, the questions in the Mometrix sample tests were nothing like the questions on the test. I did not think the bootcamp did any good at all. My plan is to re-read the scope and standards and study harder/more frequently. Perhaps the test has changed.
    I did study with a partner but she did not do well either. We both work as Informatics Nurse Specialists and figured our experience would be helpful. However, we found that the questions were challenging; almost meant to trick you. I'm not trying to scare anyone but it's not straight forward. I'm going to do it again soon since we need this for our positions. No fun.

    I completely agree. I just sat the other day and failed by a few points. I've been an Informatics nurse for 5+ years. I've been studying since the summer, not just for this but even reviewing CPHIMS as my friend was taking that. I couldn't even decipher what some of the questions were looking for. And I am normally a decent test taker. I left irritated and deflated.

    I know my place of employment does not offer a raise for becoming certified. Only the techie certifications. They pay for everything needed to complete the certification. I only wish they did for Nursing Informatics certification.

    Hello Fellow Nurses, I am interested in getting certified for Nursing Informatics. After reading all the blogs posted here, I am a little confused on what material should be used and what we should not use. I have heard that the exam has changed recently in terms of the questions so I am wondering if anyone has recently taken the exam? If so, did you pass? How did you prepare? What materials were used for your preparation? How long did you prepare? What is your background in nursing? I along with a few of my colleagues plan to test this year, so responses to your recent experiences would greatly be appreciated.

    Thank You and Good Luck on your exam.
