AANN Core Curriculum for Neuroscience Nursing, 6th Edition

The AANN Core Curriculum for Neuroscience Nursing, 6th edition, is a comprehensive resource for the practicing neuroscience nurse and nurses preparing for the Certified Neuroscience Registered Nurse (CNRN) or Stroke Certified Registered Nurse (SCRN) exams.

"I use the AANN Core Curriculum for Neuroscience Nursing as a reference in my own practice as well as a tool for orienting new neuroscience nurses to my unit. It is written in an easy-to-follow outline format, has the most up-to-date information, and includes illustrations that allow nurses to see the whole picture. I use it often and encourage my staff to do the same. What an amazing resource and reference—every neuroscience nurse should have a copy!”

—Sarah Spencer, BSN RN CNRN, Director at Large, Agnes Marshall Walker Foundation
President, American Board of Neuroscience Nursing, 2014–2015

"I have used the AANN Core Curriculum for Neuroscience Nursing as a reliable resource providing quick, concise, thoughtfully prepared information when I have been studying for a certification or seeking further understanding of a neurological disease process. The book has helped me embrace the bigger picture and not be overwhelmed by small details. I have always felt encouraged by having the wisdom of neuroscience nursing giants available in this format to support my knowledge base and growth.”
