"The Nurse.com Neuroscience review course helped
organize my studying by reviewing a different topic
each week via webinars, weekly readings and on-line
tests. In addition, there is interaction and assistance
from the instructors and your peers. The live webinars
also helped capture my interest and increase my retention
vs. reading on my own. I don't know if I would have passed
the CNRN certification exam without this course."
Carla B., RN, CNRN


"Even though I work in Neurology ambulatory and am very comfortable with adult Neuro, this CNRN Intensive CE Course
was extremely helpful. I took the CNRN exam and passed!"
Melanie C., RN, CNRN
