Addictions Nursing Certification Review: Practice Question Supplement for the CARN and CARN-AP Examinations
This document was created to provide registered nurses and advanced practice nurses with practice questions to assist in preparation for the Certified Addiction Registered Nurse (CARN) and Certified Addiction Registered Nurse – Advance Practice (CARNā€AP) examinations through the Addiction Nursing Certification Board (ANCB). Practice questions and associated rationales were developed based on current best practices in substance use disorders and process addictions care to assess knowledge of the practice activity and patient presentation domains outlined in the ANCB blueprint revisions for the CARN and CARN-AP examinations as of July 2022. Please visit the ANCB website to access information about the examination and visit the Center for Nursing Education and Testing (CNET) website for access to the updated blueprints.
