Pocket Prep has added a brand new exam offering to its Nursing Pocket Prep study prep – the Certified Ambulatory Surgery Nurse (CNAMB®).
The CNAMB® certification is for perioperative nurses working in the ambulatory surgery setting who already have two years of clinical practice. This credential is viewed as a mark of distinction and validates competency in standards of practice in providing various outpatient care.
The official exam features 200 multiple-choice questions covering nine subject areas in a pass/fail format. Exam takers have 3 hours and 45 minutes to complete the exam.
Pocket Prep’s study material features 500 practice questions and is broken down into the nine subject areas of the exam. Those subjects with their respective weight on the exam are:
- Intraoperative Care 20%
- Preoperative Patient Assessment and Diagnosis 14%
- Communication 12%
- Preoperative Plan of Care 12%
- Postoperative/Transfer of Care 10%
- Professional Accountability 10%
- Management of Personnel, Services, and Materials 9%
- Instrument Processing and Supply Management 8%
- Emergency Situations 5%
All of Pocket Prep’s 500 practice questions were built from scratch using Pocket Prep’s sourcePrep™ process that includes working with an industry expert, and they are completely original.
The following four textbooks were used to build the content, and they are used as reference points in the detailed answer explanations for every question:
- Guidelines for Perioperative Practice 2021 by AORN, 1st Edition
- Berry & Kohn’s Operating Room Technique by Nancy Marie Phillips and Anita Hornacky, 14th Edition
- Alexander’s Care of the Patient in Surgery by Jane C. Rothrock, 16th Edition
- Drain’s PeriAnesthesia Nursing: A Critical Care Approach by Jan Odom-Forren, 7th Edition
The CCI CNAMB® study prep is the 18th exam addition to Pocket Prep’s nursing exam list. Other exams included in the Nursing Pocket Prep app include Critical Care Registered Nurse, Trauma Certified Registered Nurse, Certified Emergency Nurse, and Family Nurse Practitioner.
While the exams within Nursing Pocket Prep are for advanced nurses already in the field, the company also offers study prep for entry-level nursing students for exams like the ATI TEAS and HESI A2 in the Nursing School Pocket Prep app.
Pocket Prep has been providing study prep for nurses and medical professionals for a decade and averages a 4.8-star App Store rating on all of its exam prep apps. As the nature of examinations means regular content and version changes, Pocket Prep will always make content updates as exam standards change.
