Course Description

This course is a review of emergency nursing designed to assist the participant in successfully obtaining CEN certifica-tion. The course offers lectures, graphics, videos and practice questions in many of the areas that are tested on the CEN Exam. This review will provide not only a knowledge base for successfully completing the exam, but also a foundation for further study as the participant works towards emergency nursing certification.

Why Be Certified

Successfully completing the Certified Emergency Nurse (CEN) Exam is a challenge that has been completed by only a minority of emergency nurses. Successful completion of this exam exhibits to others that the bearer has demonstrated a knowledge base in the specialty of emergency nursing that exceeds his or her peers.

  • Discuss priorities of the primary and secondary assessment of patients in presenting to the emergency department.
