CRNA Boards Bootcamp: An NCE/SEE Review Course

Accelerate your success with our in-person, live NCE and SEE review course experience for nurse anesthesia students.

The problem with using multiple NCE/SEE review courses

Do you know that combining another vendor’s review course with APEX is associated with a lower first-time NCE pass rate?

We get it. You want a new perspective on high-yield NCE/SEE content, but inconsistent information between vendors causes confusion and anxiety. Furthermore, information overload prevents you from achieving true content mastery.

The bottom line is that you’ll feel less confident and underprepared on test day. Luckily, there’s a better way…

Introducing Boards Bootcamp for Nurse Anesthesia Students!

Boards Bootcamp isn't like other in-person student review courses. Here's the APEX difference...

Two-day live event that's only available to APEX students

Meals and snacks included in the cost of your review course registration

Practice questions & handouts to supplement your learning

Boards Bootcamp is for students who want to:

  • Learn more about test-taking strategy and tactics and apply it in class with app-based CRNA board-type practice questions.
  • Interact with world-class educators who teach the “APEX” way.
  • Experience a case-based curriculum that provides a fresh perspective on high-yield content for prospective CRNAs.
  • Practice with more practice exams to help you assess your strengths and weaknesses.
  • Engage with your RRNA/SRNA peers from other programs across the country.
  • Develop the confidence you need to crush the NCE and SEE!

Here's everything you'll get at Boards Bootcamp.

Join us for two days (7:00 – 17:00), where you’ll learn from world-class educators.

Quick 25-minute presentations focus on high-yield concepts you need to succeed on boards.

These aren’t typical anesthesia review courses! This content strategically supplements our online review course by integrating all four domains of the NCE content.

Our innovative curriculum encourages active learning with case studies and interleaved practice to help you connect the dots between the basic sciences and anesthesia practice.

Apply what you’re learning in real-time with app-based board-type questions incorporated into the presentations. Make the leaderboard to win prizes!

Follow along in class with color-printed handouts. Each page references our online CRNA boards review course, so you’ll know exactly where to go if you need to review anything we cover in class.

It’s impossible for any live course to condense 3 years of school into a few days. That’s why Boards Bootcamp layers onto what you’re learning in our online RRNA/SRNA review course (purchased separately).

You’ll be well-fed with breakfast, lunch buffet, and all-you-can-eat snacks and refreshments throughout both days of the live event (food is included in the cost of the Bootcamp).

Learn more about our venues (we have a limited number of discounted rooms available):

You’ll get access to two new practice exams that are only available for students who attend Boards Bootcamp:

  1. Pre-Bootcamp Exam = Take this 100 question exam up to 3 weeks before the live course. With a clear understanding of your strengths and weaknesses, you’ll be more likely to master the material when we cover it in the live course.
  2. Post-Bootcamp Exam = Take this 100 question exam after you leave the live course to reinforce what you learned.

You’ll have access to both exams for 6 months after the start of Boards Bootcamp.

You’ll get better value and more benefits with Boards Bootcamp.

  • If your access to APEX expires, we’ll give you a free extension.

Have questions?

We have answers.

I already have the APEX Student Review Course. Should I attend Boards Bootcamp?

If you want to learn from another perspective, get additional support, interact with your peers, and have the ability to ask questions, then Boards Bootcamp is for you.

We recently updated the Boards Bootcamp curriculum to focus on test-taking strategy and application to many board-type questions layered throughout the course.

When should I attend Boards Bootcamp?

We recommend enrolling in Boards Bootcamp within 1 year of graduation.

Boards Bootcamp layers on to what you’re learning in APEX. We suggest completing the tutorials in our online course at least once before the live event (this is recommended but not required).

How should I prepare for Boards Bootcamp?

Boards Bootcamp does not contain basic review lectures. Instead, you’ll get an interactive curriculum that supplements what you’re learning in APEX.

Here’s how to prepare for your Boards Bootcamp experience:

  1. Complete the Pre-Bootcamp Exam before attending the live event.
  2. Try to get through our online course one time before the live event (this is recommended but not required).

When will I receive the color-printed handouts?

We’ll give you a physical copy of our full-color Boards Bootcamp handouts when you attend the live event.

We do not provide a digital version of these handouts.

I can't attend Boards Bootcamp in person, do you have a virtual option?

Boards Bootcamp is an interactive, in-person event.

The two-day live event will not be available virtually.

Does Boards Bootcamp include 1:1 tutoring or 1:1 support?

Boards Bootcamp is a group learning experience, so you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions during the live event.

We don’t offer 1:1 tutoring or 1:1 support outside of the live event.

Can I record any part of Boards Bootcamp?

No! Recording, streaming, or distributing any part of Boards Bootcamp is strictly prohibited.

Anyone who records, streams, or distributes any part of Boards Bootcamp will be immediately dismissed from the event AND their subscription to APEX will be terminated.

There are no refunds (full or partial) if you disregard this policy.

What is your cancelation policy for Boards Bootcamp?

You can receive a 100% refund if you cancel Boards Bootcamp for any reason up to 2 months before the live event.

We cannot provide a refund (full or partial) if you cancel Boards Bootcamp less than 2 months before the live event.

If we are forced to cancel the event due to state restrictions (e.g., COVID), then you will receive a 100% refund for the cost of Boards Bootcamp. We are not responsible for reimbursement for travel or any other expense.


Do you offer a discount on Boards Bootcamp?

We understand that many students live on a tight budget. We’ve done our very best to keep the cost as low as possible, so there aren’t any Boards Bootcamp discounts available.
