The Certification Review Course was designed to prepare the Nephrology Nurse to take the Certification Review Exam. There are three exams – The Certified Nephrology Nurse (CNN), The Certified Dialysis Nurse (CDN) and The Certified Nephrology Nurse Nurse Practitioner (CNN-NP). The nurses utilizing this course will progress through the modules as often as needed, to increase confidence in being able to pass the specific exam.

The content includes information specific to Nephrology Nursing, including specific modules on chronic kidney disease and acute kidney injury, as well as modules on each modality used as a replacement for kidney function, which all individuals will find helpful in the preparation regardless of the exam being taken. There are also modules on other aspects of caring for patients with kidney dysfunction. The nurse practitioner will also find some modules specific to the role that they play in planning and implementing care for patients in all phases of chronic kidney disease.

It is thought, as well, that this course could be used for orientation for nurses new to nephrology, even when not specifically preparing for a certification exam.
