What Nurses Are Saying About This Course!
Take the course! So worth it! 
I wanted to take the CCRN to understand the bigger picture with my patients and to prove to myself that I could do it. Your course was exactly what I needed to prepare. I was nervous that an online course would be boring and hard to get through but you made the content interesting and I found it super engaging. I would 100% recommend your review course to anyone getting ready to take the CCRN (or any of your other courses for that matter!). Oh, and I passed!!! Thank you so much! ~ F.R.

Tried them all...
I have minimal direct ICU experience with most of my experience in ED and PACU. I knew I was going to have to study for this test. Then I found this review, it was organized, fun but not silly, and taught things in easy to understand manner. Her books were excellent and practice questions similar to what I experienced. I still was not very confident, but decided to test anyway, and passed!! Just jump in! Make the commitment! You can do it! ~ E.S.E.
