What is on the AACN ACCNS-A: Detailed Breakdown.

The Adult Acute Care Clinical Nurse Specialist certification exam covers a wide range of topics related to acute and critical-care nursing. The AACN CCNS renewal test is organized into two main categories. The first section is Clinical Judgement and the second is Professional Care and Ethical Practice.

Under Clinical Judgement you will be tested on anatomical systems including the cardiovascular, pulmonary, endocrine, gastrointestinal, renal, genitourinary, integumentary, and musculoskeletal systems. Other topics include hematology, immunology, oncology, neurology, as well as psychosocial, behavioral, and cognitive health. Candidates also must be familiar with factors that influence a patient's health status.

Subjects tested on the exam's Professional Care and Ethical Practice section are advocacy and moral agency, caring practices, response to diversity, facilitation of learning, collaboration, systems thinking, and clinical inquiry.

All AACN CCNS test questions might also assess your knowledge of nursing skills and patient procedures as they relate to the above subjects.

If you think the AACN CCNS test might not be the right fit for your nursing career path, Exam Edge offers a variety of AACN practice exams to accommodate your professional needs. Can't decide which nursing certification is right for you? With perseverance, commitment, and time, you can choose multiple specialties.

How is the AACN ACCNS-A Scored?

The AACN CCNS exam is scored not on a percentage but rather a raw number. You must meet or exceed the passing point, also known as the cut score, which is predetermined by an expert panel. What constitutes a cut score can change as the exam is updated.

The questions in the Clinical Judgement section comprise 65% of the exam and the questions in the Professional Care and Ethical Practice section make up the other 35%.

Exam Edge's AACN CCNS practice questions reflect the same test topic breakdown as the real Adult CCNS exam. From cardiac surgery to mobility disorders to health literacy and everything in between, Exam Edge's AACN CCNS test questions cover all the real subjects so you can succeed. Our pretests make an excellent AACN CCNS study guide that puts you on the path to recertification.

What to Expect After the Test.

Once you complete the AACN CCNS exam, you will take a brief survey about your experience taking the test. If you take the exam on the computer, the test proctor will give you your scores upon completion. If you take a paper and pencil AACN CCNS test, your scores will be mailed to you in six to eight weeks.

Should you pass the Adult Acute Care certification, you will receive your wall certificate and congratulatory letter in one to two weeks.

Should you not pass your AACN CCNS certification, you will be able to register for a retest in two weeks. If you sign up for the retest within 90 days of the last testing date, you may become eligible for a discounted fee. You can retake the AACN CCNS certification exam up to four times in a 12-month period.

    6. What are the AACN exams?

    Seeking certification in a critical care specialty area? The AACN (American Association of Critical Care Nurses) Certification Corporation offers specialty, subspecialty and advanced practice exams for candidates seeking certification to meet specialized needs. Exactly what can you expect with the AACN certification exams?

    The AACN exams were created to protect healthcare consumers by validating the knowledge of nurses who care for and/or influence the care delivered to the acutely and critically ill. Eligibility requirements to sit for an AACN exam are dependent on the area of certification. All areas require an unencumbered RN or APRN license. Specialty and subspecialty areas require a minimum number of hours of clinical practice experience. Completion of a graduate level advanced practice program is required for the advanced practice exams. All eligibility requirements must be verified before an exam can be scheduled.

    All AACN exams are conducted in cooperation with Applied Measurement Professionals, Inc., a PSI business. The exams are computer-based, but a paper-pencil test is available at certain locations. While the length of the exam and the number of questions is dependent upon the certification area, the range is 2 hours to 3 ½ hours for 90 to 175 multiple-choice items. Twenty-five of the questions do not count toward the score as they are used to gather statistical data on item performance for future exams. Specific content outlines for each specialty area of certification are available at the AACN website at www.aacn.org.

    All exams are criterion referenced. Computer-based test results are presented on-site at the completion of testing. Paper-pencil exam results will be mailed 2 – 4 weeks following testing.
