Did you know that many hospitals, facilities, and organizations offer special incentives for nurses who obtain and maintain CCRN board certification status?

And obtaining this certification will allow you to stand out from the rest of the potential CRNA school applicants. It’s also a pretty awesome credential to have behind your name!

I want to give you the foundational knowledge, resources, and skills to not only prepare to pass this exam with flying colors, but to give yourself the best first step forward moving into the nurse anesthesia career path. 

Why is this exam so important?

Once you have practiced as an RN or APRN for 1,750 hours in direct care of acutely/critically ill adult patients during the previous two years, you can start on the path to becoming a certified critical care registered nurse.

The most widely accepted certification for critical care nurses is the CCRN exam, which is a comprehensive timed 3-hour test consisting of 150 questions. You need about 70% of these answers correct to pass. This certification is a credential granted by the American Association of Critical- Care Nurses (AACN).

Passing this exam validates a registered nurse has achieved a higher level of clinical knowledge to care for acutely and/ or critically ill patients in the adult, pediatric or neonatal settings and you are committed to serving with excellence in nursing. 

What will be the takeaways?

We will cover:

  • The basics of the CCRN Exam

  • CCRN Preparation Strategies

  • Planning Your Path After Passing

  • CCRN Review with NIcholas McGowan of Critical Care Academy

Who is this for? This training will benefit:

  • Critical care registered nurses interested in taking the CCRN exam for the first time who need to know what to expect

  • Nurses desiring to renew their CCRN certification by exam instead of by continuing education points after the 3 year expiry date

  • Registered nurses who were unsuccessful when they previously took the CCRN exam, but are looking for more tools and techniques to succeed on the next try

Who is this not for? This is not ideal for:

  • Nurses who are not interested in CCRN certification. This course is explicitly built to give you the foundation and guide to successfully passing the CCRN exam.
