So, the exam was a beast but if you are well prepared and work in a busy critical care area where you see a lot of pulmonary and cardiovascular patient's then you may not have any issue's at all!
Definitely watch the Laura Gasparis videos. SUCH a huge help!
Do a ton of questions from the PASS CCRN question bank. Take a practice test every night for 5 nights leading up to the exam at least. MENTAL AEROBICS!
I read the Barron's CCRN book from front to back--only once. I took pretty good notes throughout and I typed them up to share if anyone is interested in purchasing them from me for $10. Just inbox me and I will get them to you. It is 27 pages of typed notes. Hemodynamic parameters, elecrolyte imbalances and normal values, etc included. I plan to continue building on these notes through the years to include ABG interpretation, etc as well. Good luck with the test!!!! You can do it!
