Description: This is primarily a compilation of practice questions for the Progressive Care Certified Nurse (PCCN) certification exam.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide practice questions for the PCCN exam.
Audience: It is intended for those taking the exam.
Features: This is a collection of 1,000 questions grouped into body systems. The questions are fairly straightforward, on medical/surgical topics. There are some questions on behavioral/psychiatric disorders and two pages on test-taking strategies. There are not a lot of the caring, diversity questions, which account for 20 percent of the exam, although there are some.
Assessment: This book is helpful for basic PCCN questions. However, more test-taking strategies would be helpful, especially for nurses who may have been away from test taking for a number of years.
