Here in L&D there's no push (or even mention of) CLC yet, thank god!
RNC on the other hand is aggressively pushed, much to my dismay......yes, sadly I'm in the mid life crisis/burned out L&D nurse category....anywho, at my hospital we get a bright shiny quarter per hour more in pay with our RNC titles. The purpose of such a certification is bragging rights for the hospital (X percentage of OUR nurses are CERTIFIED
, oooohlala!) and most nurses themselves seem pretty proud of it too, so there's and added bonus of the pride of being "certified" in your specialty plus being able to sign that RNC after your name.....
Have I fully conveyed my disdain for the concept? Sorry guys, my cynical nature reigns supreme
