I had every intention of integrating board review into my everyday routine as a CRNA student. I figured, we’re constantly doing “board prep” by learning the material right? But interestingly enough, I found myself still going through an intensive 5-week plan to prepare myself for the NCE or the National Certification Examination (no one actually calls it this). In the nurse anesthesia world, it’s “boards.”
I’ve got a year and a half before I finish schooling…and the first thing on my mind is the NBCRNA Boards. I recently purchased Apex, and so far I absolutely love it. First of all the content of the modules is in a format that’s easy to read and understand. It is mostly in short paragraph/bullet point format with nice diagrams and pictures. In addition, it includes workbooks that are associated with each module.
