Just wondering who here has taken the C-NPT exam, and if so, any suggestions on study material for preparing?

Thanks.

These were a start for me. Fortunately we had a NNP who sits on the board and she gave me a heads up about a year in advance so I started hitting the books a lot earlier. It is quite a test. Not one to be taken lightly. If you have the Kettering Neonatal/Pediatric Specialty Home Study Program for the RT NPS examination that one is a good resource as well. Again it is an awesome examination for those of us that aren't quite wanting to take the FP-C, CFRN, or CCP-C.

It has been a little over a year since I sat for it so my memory is not that great as far as what was on the exam. Good luck in your preperations.

i would add hazinski and merenstein to Fuz's pretty darned good list... also, if you already own it, or are planning on buying it for another cert, WW does a brief but clear, concise job on basic congenital cardiac lesions in ACE-SAT....

also, you can't go wrong looking at the AACN neonatal CCRN practice exams... at lot of the material is irrelevant for the C-NPT, however, you might be surprised.... it's inexpensive and not only did I use it(and find it very useful), BUT, I also had a very well known pediatric-neonatal flight nurse who piloted the C-NPT tell me that he/she thought the exam was "too CCRNish..."

already PMed KF, but everyone feel free to contact me off-line for resources, etc... i recently helped write a review text that covered a lot of this material....

Thanks.

We have around 12 crew members who have their C-NPT and the texts listed are all good study material.

I recently (last month) qualified and reviewed and concur with parts of the list below (thanks guys !).

Just signed up to take my C-NPT exam. Curious from all the RRT (or anyone for that matter!) what to expect. I have had my NPS since 2004 and have worked in the neo/peds field for 11 years. Any suggestions for specific things to focus on coming from an RRT background? Thanks!

Passed the exam a few weeks ago. Was pretty proud I got "strong" in all categories when I received my letter in the mail. Does anyone know how many CEUs the test is worth?
