The CCRN course is not a part of the Academy, this course is Laura’s that she is allowing us to use on our platform, therefore, we cannot offer it as part of any existing or new subscription.

The only way to access the CCRN Review Course is by purchasing the individual course itself.

We are so excited that Laura Gasparis Vonfrolio RN, PhD has agreed to partner with and help us be the BEST place to learn nursing.

While we don’t provide direct education credits, by simply becoming certified through the examination process (and passing), you can earn your CE credits in most states. Please check with your nursing regulatory board for more information.

The CCRN Examination (Critical Care Registered Nurse) is a credentialing examination provided by the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN). This is a specific credentialing exam that demonstrates expertise and proficiency in the field of critical care. It is specific to critical care nurses, and requires a certain amount of hours to be completed, directly caring for patients in the ICU.


ICU and ED nurses are disciplines in nursing, and the CCRN proves proficiency/mastery in critical care nursing. In the emergency department, the CEN (Certification of Emergency Nursing) is the equivalent certification, which we do not provide review for.

Complete access is provided immediately upon purchase and you can login via computer, laptop, tablet, or phone.  All content is available anywhere you. have internet access 24/7.  Once you purchase, you have 60 days of access.

Currently, we do not have a question bank or questions for these courses, which is why we have a low introductory price for this review by the one and only Laura Gasparis Vonfrolio. However, during the lectures, Laura will cover a practice CCRN question and show you how to answer it.
