- Jan 18, '12 by sirIIf I were a betting person, I'd bet you do it.
- Jan 18, '12 by traumaRUsDang - you DO know me!
I am collecting info to see where I could go quicker and cheaper.
- Jan 18, '12 by traumaRUsOkay - well I contacted several schools and they all said it that it is up to ANCC what would be required.
So....I sent an email off to ANCC - we'll see.
- Jan 22, '12 by ghillbertI 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..
- Jan 22, '12 by traumaRUsAgree. I did email ANCC re: what classes constitute changing from the old cert to the new one, but haven't heard back yet.
- Jan 31, '12 by TX RNLast 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.
- Jan 31, '12 by traumaRUsWell still haven't heard back from ANCC.....
- Feb 3, '12 by CCRNDivaSurprise, surprise, lol
- Feb 3, '12 by traumaRUsYep, still no word from ANCC....hmmm....they were very quick to cash my $300 check for recert last year though.....lol
