The CPNRE Prep Guide, 4th Edition, will help you prepare to write the Canadian Practical Nurse
Registration Examination. The Prep Guide is designed to familiarize you with the format of the actual
examination and to provide you with information on the content of the examination.
The guide contains a full-length Practice Exam developed by the same people who create and score the
examination. The Practice Exam is a simulation of an actual examination. Completing the Practice Exam
will help you review and integrate the concepts you have learned in your practical nursing program;
it will also help you assess your skill in applying that knowledge. After completing the Practice
Exam, you can create your Performance Profile to identify your strengths and weaknesses. The test
instructions, test-taking strategies, question rationales and sample answer sheets can be used to
enhance your readiness to write the CPNRE.
The Prep Guide was developed by Assessment Strategies Inc., the testing company responsible for
the development and administration of the CPNRE. The guide provides suggestions on how you can best
use it, depending on the amount of time you have available before you write the CPNRE. You can
benefit from the Prep Guide whether you have several months or only two weeks to prepare for
