    Okay - well I contacted several schools and they all said it that it is up to ANCC what would be required.

    I would wait and see. There is no imminent problem as long as you keep your certification current; these things don't always happen on the planned timeframe so I can't see the point of committing the time and money to do another program unless you do actually have a problem. Can't control for all the "what if's" in life..

    Agree. I did email ANCC re: what classes constitute changing from the old cert to the new one, but haven't heard back yet.

    Last thing you need is ANCC retiring the FNP cert too.

    I'm ACNP but I'm also considering doing the FNP post grad cert. I work in a clinic with rounding in the mix, all adult, mostly geriatric. Trauma, you're line of thinking is right along with what I have considered. My reasoning is I don't want to have an "obsolete" certification should future opportunities present themselves.
