I'm going to take the CCRN... I paid the money, I've been studying (sort of), and I got my authorization to test in the mail. And then I lost it. So I am now trying to get a new one, even though the card said "DO NOT LOSE THIS NUMBER". Hopefully the receipt for the huge fee I paid to take it will be good enough to get another card.
By the way, I'm just a sucker for certifications. And tests. It makes me feel better about myself. It's just a test, doesn't make me a better nurse! But does provide a great learning opportunity. Oh, and I don't get paid more.
