Thanks. I can definitely tell that some of this stuff I haven't looked at in quite some time. There are a fair amount of things that just never were relevant to the CCT role I have so I focused on what was. What I've seen here though gives me hope, I still feel comfortable with vents, ABG's, transport radiology, etc. Others I could think my way through if I go back and dust off the cobwebs. Some practice stuff I've gone over I've just straight up forgotten. We'll see how much I polished up.
There were definitely challenging questions in there. There was a hernia one with 3 names I had never heard and hadn't the slightlest clue. A true I have a 1/3 chance so how about this. A couple neonates and I think yall know how I feel about those. Plenty of medical and trauma scenarios that make you think a bit. But I don't think I got a single PA cath or super in depth hemodynamic value one.Now I’m just curious how this compares to say the regular, or “old”, exam. Lol, perhaps I’m just a slow learner but everyone seems to say this exam was easier or “not that bad”.
Yea, it was kind of annoying. There was one in particular I was thinking I'd just literally do both simultaneously. Another that was dependent from department to department. I think that's the hardest part about exams is it takes the finer nuances of how things actually flow and forces them into a more rigid format.They really made "most appropriate answer" harder than NREMt did.
If you have FP-C they're is likely no organization that wouldn't accept it over CCP.I've been following this thread for a hot minute as a guest to see how the beta exam compared. I went for the CCP-C long ago when I was a new paramedic with no experience and a dream, utterly failed it. (Big growth moment). Now that I have some time and certs under my belt I considered retaking it and have been wishy-washy since my FP-C covers me for all of my past employers. Is there truly any argument to take the beta over the current or even take the CCP-C at all?
