Please wait ...

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.

Prepare correctly and you’ll pass your exam and earn your CCRN…which opens new career opportunities, qualifies you for better raises and promotions, and makes you stand out as the critical care expert on your unit.

On the flip side… if you don’t prepare enough, you could suffer from the embarrassment of failing the exam, as well as wasting your precious time and resources. Worse yet… maybe your own position depends on passing and earning these important credentials!

That’s a lot of pressure from one test! So, how can you make sure you’re setting yourself up for success from square one?

With the Critical Care Nurse Certification: CCRN Exam Prep Course.

This all-inclusive online training covers EVERYTHING you’ll see on the CCRN exam and includes access to an online practice test — which you can take again and again, until you’re absolutely prepared to pass with flying colors!

Let expert certification coach Cyndi Zarabano, MSN, BSN, CCRN, CEN, PCCN, CMSRN, CLNC, transform your critical thinking skills and make you the go-to nurse on the unit.

    • Position yourself for better raises and future promotions

    • Much, much more!

At least, that’s what Elizabeth did, as she passed the exam on her very next attempt! She was able to keep her job and now recommends this training to all her colleagues.
