The CNA Certification Program is designed to evaluate the knowledge and skills expected of a nurse with at least two years of experience in a given specialty. CNA Certification exams test participants based on national standards created by nursing experts rather than a core curriculum of study.
Because the exam assesses experience, preparation will be based on what nurses already know. This course is designed to review and examine practice areas that nurses may not be exposed to (example - stroke, movement disorders, epilepsy etc.). Course content includes topics listed in the CNA Guidelines and Competencies for Neuroscience Nursing. The exam blueprint and competencies are available at:
