CCRN® Certification Review Course


About the Online Course

The CCRN® Certification Online Course is designed to follow the AACN Certification Blueprint for the Adult CCRN® exam. This review will assist nurses who provide direct care to acutely/critically ill adult patients to obtain their certification.

This course is comprised of eleven modules, each module is further divided into short sessions so that one can easily pinpoint any concept that needs extra reviewing. Nicole has a knack of breaking down key information and combining real life stories, catchy cheers and case studies to help solidify understanding of each disease state. She brings a wealth of knowledge, energy, enthusiasm and humor to her teaching, making this overwhelming content easily digestible, engaging & entertaining. Nicole strives to instill confidence in nurses to successfully pass the CCRN® exam!

What Nurses Are Saying About This Course!
Aced the CCRN with this course!
I ended up getting COVID in August, but luckily I had only very minor symptoms. So I thought to myself, while I have two weeks off, may as well study for the CCRN. And thank God that my friend told me to take Nicole's course. I don't know how many times I sat there and thought to myself, "Why am I not getting bored listening to all of these videos?" It's because 1) I do actually enjoy learning more about nursing and medicine, but mainly because 2) Nicole is an AMAZING teacher!!

She's so engaging and personable. And to drive home how great her course is, I spent my two weeks off studying, and took the test two weeks after I went back to work. I only gave myself a month to study for it, which was probably stupid, but between the course and the review tests, I passed the test by a large margin. ~ R.P.

100% Recommend
I absolutely recommend Nicole's class to prepare for the CCRN! She is knowledgeable, funny, and keeps you engaged throughout all the material. More than that, she is extremely uplifting during each topic, always saying, "I know you can do this!" 

I wasn't so sure if that was true for me, but the morning of my test that's what I kept telling myself - and guess what? I passed!! Well worth the investment of money and time to have earned this certification! ~ A.G.
