Goal and Learning Outcomes

The goal of this course is to assist the learner in successfully passing the CFRN national certification exam. From abdominal trauma and burns to mechanical ventilation and shock management, our CFRN certification test prep course shows you how to keep patients stable en route. After studying the information presented, you will be able to discuss:

  • The general principles of transport nursing practice
  • Specifics of patient assessment and preparation
  • Airway and shock management, as well as mechanical ventilation
  • The traumatic injuries that may prompt air transport and how to care for them
  • The management of environmental, toxicological, metabolic and neurological illnesses

 

After completing the course, you will be more prepared for the flight nurse certification exam. These courses are created by leading subject matter experts (SMEs) in each field and are based on the current exam content outlines published by the examining boards for each specialty.

Please note that Nurse.com does not administer nursing certifications. We specialize in online and live reviews that provide registered nurses with the information you need to pass your certification exam. We recommend that you utilize more than one resource when preparing for national certification examinations.
