Specialty certification is a goal of many perianesthesia nurses. The CPAN® and CAPA® credentials validate clinical expertise and demonstrate a commitment to professional development and life-long learning. Many nurses, however, are unsure of how to study, and wonder if their current level of knowledge is sufficient to pass the examinations.
This seminar is designed to assist the perianesthesia nurse seeking certification in attaining the knowledge necessary to successfully pass the CPAN® and/or CAPA® examinations. Nancy McGushin, MSN, RN, CNL, CPAN, will lead you through a review of key areas of study, test-taking strategies, and critical thinking processes that will enhance your ability to formulate a successful course of study and ultimately achieve your goal of becoming a certified perianesthesia nurse.
NOTE: Tuition includes one free CE Certificate. This online course may include multiple product formats. To receive full credit, please submit the CE test for each format that has self-study materials included.
