Has anyone taken the SCRN exam recently, please share your experience.
What is SCRN? Did you mean CCRN?
It is stoke certification...... if you need more info, please let me know...
I took it at the end of December. I studied on and off for 3 months, more heavily the last 2 weeks before the test. I passed but just barely. It was 175 questions. The questions aren't tricky like the NCLEX, but you need to know the content pretty well. I used the book from AANN, bought the practice test, and my work sponsored a 2 day class, but I took that almost a year and a half before I took the test. I also have been working on a designated stroke unit for almost 3 years.
I just took it in April and used the following to study:
Stroke Certification study guide for nurses
Fast facts for stroke care in nursing
SCRN exam review course that was self-paced by MedEd
Passed, thought I wouldn't pass during the exam but I did with a good buffer.
The question were very similar to the first book I talked about.
Good luck studying!
Took it a couple of years ago and found fairly easy (compared to the CNRN!!).
The AANN has a study book called "AANN Comprehensive Review for Stroke Nursing"....it is all you need. Good luck.

I just took mine this week and passed. I used the Fast facts book and the Stroke Certification Study Guide.
Do you receive a certificate in the mail or a pin?
