BCEN® now offers two CEN Prep Exams through its test development vendor. The original 50-question version is still available, but due to numerous requests, BCEN is now offering a 150-question CEN Prep Exam.
Both CEN Prep Exams match the blueprint of the CEN exam. The prep exams conform to the specifications of the CEN exam, both in terms of content and average difficulty level. The CEN Prep Exams are revised approximately every 4 years.
50-Question CEN Prep Exam—although the content coverage is not as broad (the prep exam is 50 questions, whereas the CEN exam is 150), it is still intended to reflect the knowledge level required of an emergency nurse. The questions represent each category of the CEN Content Outline by one third. For example, the category of Patient Care Management has 21 questions in the CEN exam and 7 on this prep exam. The 50-question CEN Prep Exam costs $30.
150-Question CEN Prep Exam—this prep exam contains the same 50 questions found in the 50-question version plus an additional 100 questions. These 150 questions equally represent each category of the CEN Content Outline. The 150-question CEN Prep Exam costs $75.
