Minimum experience is 2 years full time working as a registered nurse in an ambulatory care position. 2 years full time experience is the minimum requirement for nearly all nursing board certifications regardless of specialty. The reason being is one cannot be a specialist after just graduation. As far as reimbursement, it depends on the employer some do, some do not. Check with your employee policy manual or with your human resources representative.
