3.59 MB PDF
For more than 25 years, I have been privileged to write the credential CCRN after my name. Earning this certification was an early goal of mine that I have maintained over the course of my career.
In the 1970s, I was an avid critical care nurse, spending most of my time in coronary care units. Being certified as a critical care nurse represented a way to demonstrate my knowledge and offered me many professional opportunities. For example, CCRN certification was recognized in employment applications and annual evaluations. It also was acknowledged on my application for graduate studies. The CCRN credential opened many doors to career advancement that would otherwise have gone unopened for me. As a cardiovascular clinical specialist, I have participated in National Teaching Institutes, including poster presentations, designed critical care internships for new graduates, taught CCRN review courses, and closely followed critically ill patients in multiple clinical settings. These activities and the continuing support I received from the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses and other CCRN colleagues ultimately led to my continued study in nursing. As an academic nurse and outcomes researcher, I was fortunate to be able to direct a critical care clinical nurse specialist program and participate in studies of the critically ill. In essence, the CCRN credential was an early career achievement that gave me the confidence to continue learning.
Today, research is beginning to show relationships between additional preparation and improved patient outcomes. CCRN certification, a valued credential, is one way to demonstrate our expertise and continued professional growth. Not only does the CCRN build confidence and assist in career growth for individual nurses, but it may be related to improved patient outcomes. Isn’t this the real essence of critical care nursing?
Taking the CCRN examination is challenging and is often viewed with trepidation. However, with careful planning and preparation, you will be successful. Taking the time to carefully review with specialty texts, such as the Springhouse Review for Critical Care Nursing Certification, 4th Edition, will strengthen the knowledge you already have and update you on the most current information in critical care nursing. This approach to preparation will optimize your ability to effectively earn the CCRN credential.
