I am in my final semester of my MSN Nurse Education program. I am considering taking the CNE exam... but not sure if it will be worth the cost of test, and the months I will use studying for it.? I have heard it is a difficult exam.
I am curious to those with experience in academia and hospital-based education, how necessary is the CNE certification? For example, improved pay? Or improved chances of being hired? etc... I feel a bit unsure of the benefits of the certification... so any feedback or experience would help me in making a decision.
