I got my letter, and the child psych and adult psych CNS certs are being eliminated, also. I'm deeply offended by the whole business, and am trying to figure out if there is a way I can continue my career the way I want to without certification, because I would looooove
to just be able to tell the ANCC to go screw itself at this point. I am horrified by the idea of having to give additional money in the future (recertification fees) to an organization that thinks so little of me and my education and practice.
Ironically, I just recently got solicited by them to participate (out of the goodness of my heart, of course) in a field trial of new test questions for the child psych CNS cert exam; I agreed, and spent a recent Saturday AM doing this -- I wish I'd done more research; if I'd known about this I wouldn't have wasted my time (or done the ANCC a favor)!
