Learn at a live Seminar or from the comfort of your own home
Prepare for the NCC InPatient OB Nursing exam
Cindy Parke brings her InPatient Review Course to the comfort of your home in a webinar (pace yourself) form, a Live Virtual event, or an in person seminar format. While all formats cover the same materials, Cindy has developed a course for an attendee to take this course in 1 hour segments, with the hope that the attendee can give the course 4 hours per week. If you take this course in person or live virtual it is a 2 day course, or you can take the course online, meeting your busy schedule. We recommend a maximum 6-8 weeks for completion.
