No need to be a leader in the profession to be clinically competent.
There is more to this certification than clinical competence. It validates professional dedication, involvement, leadership, mentorship and clinical expertise.
The good news is that nobody has to have this to get a position in the ER. It is simply a way to show to peers, colleages and potential employers that one has demonstrated not just clinical competence but a level of clincal and professional expertise that is above average.
BTW, those ARE ENP requirements. I'm not sure what you are suggesting. They were a direct link from the ENP page.
This is what I'm using to guide the application process. http://www.nursecredentialing.org/EmergencyNP-PCO
This is specific for the ENP application. What you are quoting is the general instructions for all of the certifications through portfolio. I think those specifically listed in the ENP specific instructions are very doable and relevent to my practice.
