Board Certified

  1. 0
    Hi I was wondering if there are different boards to certify the different specialties of the CNS, or does it fall under one the ANCC? Are most CNS's board certified? Is it a requirement? What professional organizations for a new CNS?

    Thanks so much!

    At the present time, ANCC is the only choice for CNS certification. I think most CNS's do get board certified.

    Yes, the ANCC is only organization that certifies CNSs. All the CNS job postings I've ever seen have specified the employer requires certification, and I believe (someone correct me if I'm wrong! ) that the states that offer additional licensure for CNSs require certification -- I know that mine and the "next-door" state do.

    My state allows any graduate specialty exam... AACN for the CCNS works here and there are some loopholes for other specialties. I went through ANCC though.
