Got a letter from ANCC asking for volunteers to be content experts in the development of a new Emergency Nurse Practitioner certification board examination. Sounds like qualifications will be based on portfolio (active practice in ED or UC setting). Early in this stage, I am assuming this is another layer of certification or subcertification if you will, on top of a primary NP certification (i.e, FNP, ACNP) which is totally in-line with Consensus Model language. I'm obviously not qualified as a content expert (never worked in ED as an NP) but still interested in how this will materialize.
Nice. I'm in a program at University of West Virgina atm. Emergency Medicine Certifcate program. Given to physicians, NPs and PAs.
2 year program averaging 4-5 credits per semester and 1 summer skills lab.
I'd love a cert program though.
