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.

I absolutely recommend Nicole's class to prepare for the CCRN! She is knowledgable, 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!

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. Many others recommends Gasparis review, but I had trouble focusing on her lectures, and hated her review book. 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!

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!
