I passed the Med-Surg Certification Exam!!!!! For the second time.

I was seriously worried. With good reason. I didn't do well in some Biophysical and Psycholsocial Concepts, but kicked but in Patient Care Issues and Issues and Trends!

Maybe this time I won't let it expire. :)

ALL INTERESTED persons can go to http://www.nursingworld.org/ancc/

This will take you to the AMerican Nurses Credentialing site to find how to be certified in many fields. You do have to be an RN, and some require a BSN to take the tests depending on what fiels you specialize in.

Hope this helps!
