This three-day course is designed to help you prepare for and pass the Pediatric Nursing Certification Board (PNCB)  primary care certification exam. This course will follow an updated PNCB exam outline. The review will cover major theories of growth and development, diagnosis, treatment modalities, interventions of common pediatric illnesses and more. The schedule has been developed to align with the Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner-Primary Care (CPNP-PC) Exam. Participants consistently report that practice exam questions are the most important part of the review course, so each lecture has been designed with practice questions to help you analyze your strengths and weaknesses. The course faculty will use an organized approach to improve retention and recall, while integrating test-taking strategies to help you succeed. This course is also a great opportunity for PNPs seeking to refresh their knowledge and FNPs taking a deeper dive into key pediatric topics to enhance their daily practices. Participants will earn 15 CE hours.
