“The practice exam mimicked the style of the actual exam. I was able to understand how questions and answers would be structured which allowed me to use test-taking strategies that alleviated my anxiety. I loved how I could test my knowledge and see the rationale for any answers I got wrong.”

– Brenda Nelson, RN, CEN, CFRN, Chief Flight Nurse at Airlift Northwest
