    What Nurses Are Saying About This Live Webinar Course

    "An overall great learning and supportive session for the exam. Your real life examples and simple explanation make understanding and remembering the information easy."

    "Because all my nursing experience has been at a small rural CCU- there are several topics that I feel completely clueless about- those types of conditions/patients are shipped from ED. The way you present this material and conversations around the condition make it easier to understand and I find the Study Guide VERY helpful!"

    "Nicole's ability to speak from experience. It allows me to fully trust that I've put my CCRN review prep in the right hands.

    "What a helpful and engaging course despite not in person. Highly recommend!!"

    "I always love the polls because it gives me a chance to combine the info I already know with review. Plus it feels good to get them right!"
