CCRN Certification Review Course

This two-day course provides the critical care nurse with a review of AACN’s core curriculum. The agenda combines central knowledge-based lectures for nurses working in the ICU with an essential review of nursing care and interventions according to the AACN exam blueprint for the critical care provider. This review is not an introduction to the ICU, but a comprehensive update for the professional at the bedside and preparing for the certification examination.

For attendees preparing to take the CCRN Exam: This review course content follows AACN’s updated 2015 CCRN Exam blueprint. Professional Caring and Ethical Practice (20% of exam) issues are addressed when appropriate throughout the seminar.

The deadline for submitting applications to sit for this offering of the CCRN exam on 5/31/18 has passed.
