A bit about PRIMED

PRIMED Ed. was developed by Marlene Burrows & Laura Housden. Their goal was to develop a concise two day prep course for students preparing for the CRNE. In essence a "CRNE bootcamp". This was in response to the lack of study tools/aids and prep courses available and the desperate need demonstrated by students.

With regards the CRNE most students have one of these two concerns or both:
1. They need practice with answering CRNE style questions (often psychosocial questions)
2. They need review on core nursing concepts

The PRIMED CRNE review course does both of things. We not only practice questions but we review content too! The two day workshop is structured according to nursing topics and each one is followed by CRNE style questions. This allow students to better determine where there areas of strengths and weaknesses are to focus and utilize their study time better.
The 2011 June CRNE has prompted PRIMED to hold CRNE review courses in many cities across Canada including:
Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Kingston and Halifax.
