MED-ED CCRN-PCCN Exam Review Course

This two or three-day course is designed to provide critical care and progressive care nurses a review of AACN’s core curriculum. The course combines central knowledge-based lectures so that nurses working in the PCU and ICU arenas will have a review of AACN’s certification blueprint. The first day will provide the critical care provider with an essential review of nursing care and interventions designed for the ICU setting. The second day of this lecture series will combine both the critical care and the progressive care areas. Information essential to each will be presented in a combined method still complying with AACN’s certification blueprint. The third day will be specifically for the progressive care provider and complete AACN’s blueprint for system review. This review is not an introduction to the environment of the ICU or PCU, but a comprehensive update for the professional already in practice at the bedside and preparing for either or both of the certification examinations.

Please note: The virtual conference meeting access link will be emailed to registered participants 24 - 48 hours prior to the start of the activity.
