Does it count for CCRN if you pass this exam? Well, as long as you have had enough experience in your hands to earn your degree, then, yes, it counts for CCRN. Does it matter how much experience you have though? Well, that is a different story altogether. For the purposes of this discussion, any experience will do, even the ones that do not come along in the form of classroom study or actual clinical practice.
What do I have to do to get my CRRN test? The first thing to do is go to a testing center close to you. Usually, you would have to schedule the testing at least a month ahead of the course day. If you can get a spot in the test center a few days before the exam, that will also do. You need to arrive at least twenty-four hours before the test in order to get your CRRN test number.
How do I pay for my CCRN exam day registration? When you pay for your exam day registration, make sure that you are giving an amount that covers your registration fees. There are different ways of doing this, but in general, registration fees are paid once a year and they can range from ten dollars to twenty dollars per student. It really depends on the particular school and the method by which you pay.
What if I do not have enough clinical practice to satisfy the clinical training requirement for CCRN? Even if you do not have enough experience yet to be eligible to take the test for CCRN, you can still take the clinical practice part of the course. Most schools that offer this degree do allow students to take the clinical practice part of the course at their own pace.
Can I take more than one part of the course at a time? Yes, you can. In fact, some schools actually have a second major in this field (instead of CCRN) so that students can opt to do more than just one portion of the course. This way, they can fulfill their clinical experience requirements AND fulfill their CCRN certification requirements all at the same time.
How do I do my clinical practice part if I do not have enough CCRN experience yet? That’s a great question! Actually, if you are a college student, you can have the clinical practice portion of the course completed online or on a campus. You do not need to have any clinical experience for these tests, but having at least a high school diploma will help.
If you are currently working and taking care of a family, you may be able to qualify for reduced costs on CCRN exams. Call your workplace and ask about student discounts. Some employers will do this if you have enough hours of paid vacation time. You should also check out local public libraries and community centers to see if they have resources that may qualify you for reduced costs on CCRN test preparation materials.
