Certified Pediatric Emergency Nurse (CPEN)


Successfully completing the Certified Pediatric Emergency Nurse (CPEN)® 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 their peers.

The course offers lectures, graphics, videos and practice questions in many of the areas that are tested on the CPEN examination.  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.
