Course Description

This condensed, detailed review of AACN’s blueprint for the CCRN Certification Examination is designed for the critical care nurse preparing for the examination. The instructor will provide a lecture format covering anatomy and physiology, assessment (including hemodynamics and utilization of noninvasive and invasive monitoring tools) and pathophysiology in a systems approach. Topics include: cardiac, pulmonary, neurology, renal, endocrine, hematology, gastrointestinal, psychological and legal aspects of care. This review is not an introduction to the critical care environment, but a comprehensive overview of information for the nurse preparing for the CCRN Examination.
