Did you know?

  • Certified nurses and advanced practice nurses have demonstrated their knowledge through a rigorous examination – a process which includes qualifying by meeting practice or education eligibility criteria and then maintaining their credential through reassessment of that knowledge throughout their career
  • Certified nurses choose to seek out certification – demonstrating their expertise, knowledge and commitment
  • National certification is the only way to have nursing specialty knowledge validated by an impartial third party
  • Certified nurses must maintain their core specialty knowledge base and keep up with the changes in health care through ongoing targeted education and continuing competency assessments

Certified nurses work in all specialty areas, in every part of the country and in every health care setting, but the public is unaware of the certified nurse and of their effect on health care, patient advocacy and patient safety. Certified nurses have a direct influence on patients and their families during life-changing times, such as giving birth, illness and trauma. Their patients feel more confident with the care provided by certified nurses who are dedicated to staying up-to-date with the continuing changes in health care practices.
