Follows Current Exam Blueprint:
CNRN Exam Review
The field of neuroscience nursing is rapidly growing, with new stroke centers developing throughout the country.Neuroscience nurses are the experts in caring for the neurological patients ranging from strokes, traumatic brain injuries to brain tumors. The neuroscience nurse must be prepared to care for these patients from the fast-moving emergency room all the way through until the rehabilitation phase. This course is designed to assist that nurse in meeting the challenges specific to neuroscience nursing, both in the adult and pediatric patient, by preparing the nurse for the CNRN® Exam. This review course serves as a comprehensive, focused course geared towards delivering challenging topics in an easy to understand manner and recall information for testing. The course follows the blueprint provided by the American Association of Neuroscience Nurses.
