Critical Care Nurse Certification: CCRN Exam Prep Course

Elizabeth, a nurse from Chicago, wanted to become a Certified Critical Care Nurse but despite her dedication and best efforts she failed the CCRN exam.
Then her facility presented her with an ultimatum — pass the exam or be terminated.
Adding more anxiety to an already stressful situation, Elizabeth found herself paralyzed by the fear of failure…a feeling MANY critical care nurses can relate to when working towards their CCRN certification.
