Hello Everyone,

I have worked in Cardiology close to 4years and want to obtain my PCCN cert... My job doesn't have a course/bootcamp available.... They soon will... I don't want to wait and want to seek a class, etc on my own.... Any advice on how to approach this?? also any additional resources like purchasing a review book, CD, videos etc??? Im serious and want to start and get this done....  Please share your thoughts.........

My hospital did have a boot camp. But I also purchased "Ace the PCCN you can do it" book by Nicole Kupchik and used a pccn daily question app. Passed first attempt. Good luck!

Was “ace the PCCN You can do it” your only resource? I’m gonna start studying soon but I’m giving myself 6 months so I’m not overwhelmed with that and school. You know if the books they recommend on their website are actually worth it?

I used the same book and app. No boot camp. I did buy the online review course from AACN, but I found it pretty useless. Passed, first attempt.  It was easier than I was expecting. Good luck!

Thanks! I was looking at what was available and that looked like the better option anyway.

PCCN Pocket Prep which I found harder than the actual test, imo.
