    You can't go wrong with AACN Core Curriculum for Pediatric Critical Care Nursing 2nd Ed. ct&subsystem=ORD&itemid=0&mid=0&opentype=win]American Association of Critical-Care Nurses
    [/URL]That's what I'm using to study for the Canadian equivalent that I'll be writing in April.

    Are you planning on attending NTI in Boston??

    Thanks! I will check it out!
    I have been thinking of going to NTI, Boston is my home city, not where I currently live/work :-( but I am thinking it will be a great excuse to go home and a great conference!

    Many years ago I used Mary Fran Hazinski's text to prepare for the CCRN. I read it cover to cover. It was finally revised and has a new edition out. Great reference!
