“Not only is the book helping with the CCRN, but I have just secured a position at Cleveland Clinic’s Thoracic ICU where all the heart surgeries are performed. I have only been a nurse for one year and the book is becoming an invaluable tool for me; to review, as well as, learn new information I did not concentrate on in school. I have found several nurses who have not taken the CCRN, carrying copies of the book with them everyday, and using it as a reference for any question they might have. I appreciate dedicated nurses like yourself, who spend time making it easier for other nurses to practice with a higher degree of competency. I hope to join that rank soon. Again Thank You”
Sincerely, Richard Thousand

“Just wanted to let you know that I just passed the CCRN. I took the test this morning and got a 86% over all. I am pleased with my efforts but wanted to thank you for such a wonderful program (Joliet, IL-June 2004), book, and CD rom you have put together. I studied from the CDrom and then the questions I missed I would read in the book in depth. My scores on the CD rom were very comparable to how I scored today. The CD rom was wonderful! Please keep up the good work. You are fabulous motivator.”
Claire Anderson, North Aurora, Illinois

“I just would like to add a testimonial to your site. I passed my CCRN on my first try thanks to your book and cd-rom. Your study guide provided me with the best information and the cd-rom thoroughly prepared me for my exam. LOVED IT!!! I only prepared using your information. I took a review course that did not prepare me at all, but your book and info completely prepared me and if not for the information you provided, I would not have passed!!!! I am referring all of my colleagues to your resource and cd-rom. Thank you, THANK YOU!!!”

“I just wanted to let you know that I was fortunate enough to attend your critical care classes at Monongalia General Hospital in Morgantown, WV back in the early 1990s. It left a lasting impression on me. I still have the handouts that were given to us. I learned a lot from you. You have a unique gift for teaching, not to mention the energy and humor you exude. Thank you for sharing your gift with us.”
Pat Arbogast, LPN, Marlinton, WV

“I have 2 other CCRN review books, but, alas, they lay to the side because I LOVE your book. I find it a much better written book which explains things on a higher, more detailed and concise level. I find myself using what I have learned from your book everyday that I work. I recommend your book to any nurses who ask where I am leaning my new knowledge and to those who express a desire for more tools and facts.”
Jerry Chacon, RN, Tucson, AZ

“I am emailing you to let you know that I passed my CCRN exam!! I could not have done it without your class. It was incredible and a life saver. The review CD-ROM was very helpful and almost an exact predictor of my score. Thanks again for helping me to achieve this professional goal.”
Monica Perkins, RN, BSN, CCRN, Austin, TX

“Your learning activities helped me to “unlock” some “mindblocks” that I was having. There were a couple of areas that I didn’t fully understand. After doing the learning activities, I saw things more clearly. Also, doing the questions on the CD-ROM helped simulate the test and the testing environment. Your knowledge of critical care is very impressive. Your seminar was so informative. Keep up the good work.”
Ronda Klinkenborg, RN, CCRN, George, IA

“I attended your CCRN review session in Charlotte, NC. Last week I passed the exam!! I couldn’t believe how the questions in your review materials were so similar to the exam questions. I’ve recommended your materials to several nurses. Thanks for the time and effort you have devoted to critical care nurses.”
Lori Faulkner, RN, CCRN, Clemmons, NC

“Last November you came to the Heart Hospital of South Dakota to give a 2 day review course. I sat in the front row. I took the CCRN exam today and I passed! Thank you so much for your book, your CD-ROM, and your review.”
Kym Osterberg, RN, CCRN, Sioux Falls, SD

“I wanted to thank you for a very valuable experience. I have been to a lot of CCRN reviews and multiple conferences over the years but yours was outstanding. I say valuable for multiple reasons including time well spent, information exceeding my expectations, and a reasonable cost. I appreciate your interactive approach and will certainly refer others in your direction. I hope to have the opportunity to attend yet another of your presentations in the future.”
Lezlie Lounsberry, RN, CCRN, Jackson, MI

“I just wanted to let you know I passed my CCRN exam yesterday for the first time. What a hard exam! I could not have passed it without your review course, the book, and the CD-ROM tests. It all prepared me quite well. Thank you!”
Karen Simchick, RN, CCRN, Ocean, NJ

“I took your CCRN review in April 2002 in Las Vegas. I took the exam yesterday and I passed it. I bought both your review book and the AACN book but I reviewed from yours primarily because yours was easier to read and understand. It is very direct and to the point. I was well organized and the content makes sense. I also enjoyed and liked the review course that I attended. You are an excellent speaker and a great educator.”
Geralyn Venzon, RN, CCRN, Fremont, CA
