Board CertifiedRegister Today!
- by pokey_2010 Apr 4, '10Hi 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!

- Apr 4, '10 by elkparkYes, 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.
