The Medical-Surgical Nursing Interactive Certification Review Workshop provides information relevant to current practice and review materials to prepare for the ANCC Medical-Surgical Nursing board certification exam. The course content aligns with the ANCC exam content outline.
Over the course of eight weeks, you will be immersed in independent study, consisting of multimedia learning activities combined with knowledge checks, case studies, and discussion boards with your peers. Your personal learning journey will be led by a knowledge coach who will guide your cohort through this interactive review course. An electronic copy of the Medical-Surgical Nursing Review & Resource Manual is also included for the duration of the course content.
The course consists of online independent study with 24/7 access plus two live knowledge coach facilitated sessions. One is via web-conferencing platform, ZOOM, and the other is face to face at the workshop location. Course content is available from one month before the course start date, through three months after the course end date.
