Pass CCRN! was written for critical care nurses who would like to study for the CCRN (or for a specific CMC exam), who would like an up-to-date resource or a great review, or who are critical care educators or CNS mentors or teachers.

In particular, Content Expert and quiz writer Gail Lorretta Logan, MSN, CCRN, ANP-BC, selected material to include in the quiz that would be useful to experienced CCRNs, who especially desire to know what's new and what's changed. She selected material new to the fourth edition whenever possible. Of the Section A questions, 44% are based on material newly added to the fourth edition. Forty-four percent of the Section B quiz and 54% of the Section C quiz are are based on this newly added material.

From the preface of the text:

"Pass CCRN! ... (is) the most up-to-date, comprehensive review of critical care nursing available on the market today.

Pass CCRN! uses an outline format that makes the information easy to read, understand, and remember. Illustrations and tables further explicate and clarify content, highlight key concepts, and enhance written explanation. This fourth edition includes many new concept maps to illustrate the pathophysiology of critical care conditions to aid understanding of the linkage between pathophysiology and clinical presentation.

This edition of Pass CCRN! offers significantly revised content throughout the book along with a new chapter on behavioral/psychosocial. Critical care pharmacology is integrated throughout.

Coverage of each body system begins with a brief review of anatomy and physiology. This refresher lays the foundation for introducing more complex topics in the areas of assessment, intervention, and evaluation. Assessment includes health history, physical examination, diagnostic studies, and system-specific assessment methods. For example, the cardiovascular chapter discusses hemodynamic monitoring and electrocardiography, the pulmonary chapter covers interpretation of arterial blood gases, and the neurology chapter presents intracranial pressure monitoring. The format varies for the Multisystem, Professional Caring and Ethical Practice, and the Behavioral/Psychosocial chapters due to the nature of the content in those sections.

Pathologic conditions listed on the CCRN blueprint are included in the content review. Each condition is first defined, followed by separate sections that explore Etiology, Pathophysiology, Clinical Presentation, including the subjective, objective, and diagnostic, and concludes with Collaborative Management, which includes medical and nursing management.
