"This is a treasure trove for those preparing for the CNE examination. For those adding certification to their goals list, this book is a must have."--Doody's Medical Reviews

"I truly believe that your book made it possible for me to successfully complete the CNE exam! It truly is the only book you need to pass the CNE exam - I'm living proof! Thanks so much! I learned a lot from your book and intend to keep it on my desk for future reference!"

-Sue Carroll, MSN, RN

Sentara College of Health Sciences

This is the only CNE review book for both novice and expert nurse educators that offers a systematic approach to preparing for the CNE Certification Exam.

Additionally, each chapter is organized into bite-size segments to facilitate ease of use. Chapters contains case studies, tips for test success, and critical thinking questions along with web links for accessing additional content on a particular topic. Review questions complete each chapter and a sample CNE test is provided. Three practice tests are also included along with an answer key and rationale for self-assessment.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Viki Hedderick, DEd, MSN, BSN (Edinboro University of Pennsylvania)
Description: This book provides a sound review of key nursing educational concepts to prepare readers for the National League of Nursing Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) examination.
Purpose: The purpose is two-fold: first, to review key concepts in nursing education to prepare readers for the CNE examination; and, second, to assist others with the knowledge of the concepts. The book delivers on the objectives, providing clear content and vivid examples.
Audience: Although written for faculty looking to achieve national certification in nursing education, the book is also a valuable resource for faculty of all levels who wish to keep current with educational strategies.
Features: This book contains the typical concepts found in nursing education. However, the best part is the way the author provides easy to understand examples of how to blend the concepts of service learning and evidence-based practice into the classroom and clinical setting. The case studies at the end of each chapter drive home the content in a meaningful way.
Assessment: This is a treasure trove for those preparing for the CNE examination. For those adding certification to their goals list, this book is a must have.

    Has good content but many typos and grammatical errors found. The practice questions at the end of each chapter test over content in the chapter but I have found many questions that have content that is not covered until later in the book. I am giving 3 stars because the content is good but I think the book needs quite a bit more editing.
