Designed with time efficiency in mind, FSNM features up-to-date, interactive and self-paced education that seamlessly blends into a learner’s busy schedule.

Adult CCRN/CCRN-E/CCRN-K Certification Review

The Adult CCRN/CCRN-E/CCRN-K Certification Review course helps to take the fear out of preparing for acute/critical care nursing certification. This course was designed to validate knowledge, identify areas for further study and build test-taking confidence.

With ECCO, we can offer a structured orientation into critical care that is written to national standards. The online format gives us more flexibility to hire nurses whenever they are needed instead of waiting to hire on a fixed schedule.
