CRNI Review: Key Points to Remember Workshop

Kay Coulter’s CRNI® Review Workshop is a 1-day “key points” review that, when combined with the CRNI® Exam Preparation Self Study Program (audio & workbook) will prepare nurses to sit for and successfully complete the INCC national certification (CRNI®) exam. It is also appropriate for nurses who wish to gain in-depth knowledge of current evidence-based IV therapy practice. For best results, it is highly recommended that participants listen to the audio in its entirety prior to attending the workshop.
