Compare Your Options for Preparing for the CHNP Exam

We encourage you to explore all of your options. Here are a few options to consider in preparation for the CHPN exam.

Option 1: Take a Live, In-Person CHPN Certification Prep Course

Every nurse has different needs and unique ways of absorbing new information so we fully encourage you to consider your options as you assess your learning style. There are CHPN Study Guides, CHPN Practice Tests and a variety of other means to prep for the CHPN exam. What we know is that there is not a single perfect way for everyone to prepare for the CHPN Exam. If you are in the San Diego area or anywhere in Southern California and you like a hands on, face-to-face approach to learning new material, you will really appreciate the structure of this 2-day course. You will also welcome the expertise of the facilitators for this CHPN exam preparation course.

Option 2: Free CHPN Study Guides

The free CHPN study guides and free CHPN practice tests you can find at many sites online may be helpful but nothing compares with face-to-face instruction from the people that have helped to create the CHPN Exam.

Option 3: CHPN Exam Study Guide

You can buy a number of CHPN Exam Study Guides online but it’s important to take a very close look at your learning style. With our weekend prep course, you’ll spend time with real people who know the CHPN exam content and the testing process.

Option 4: CHPN Exam Secrets and Study Guide

Buying any of a variety of CHPN exam study guides can always help but if you are the kind of person that likes to ask questions to get clarification from an expert, this weekend CHPN prep course may be perfect for you.

Option 5: CHPN Practice Test

You can take a number of free CHPN practice tests online but many of us like to get our questions answered directly and clearly from the experts. That’s why our CHPN test prep weekend is so effective. We’re offering this CHPN preparation weekend in conjunction with our partners at the Hospice & Palliative Nurses Association San Diego Chapter. If you are thinking about getting your certification (or need to renew it), our two-day preparation course is exactly the help you need to ensure you pass your exam. Seating is limited for the Certified Hospice and Palliative Nurse (CHPN) Exam Preparation Course so make your reservations early.
