Kudos to you on your years of certification. You most definitely had stricter guidelines to follow in the 90's. I wish I had done it many years ago myself but ... I'm enjoying the new adventure after so many years out of school. I am new to this blog/forum and find it very intersting. I hope I can shed a little light on one of your thoughts.
You said "...the only certification that counts at all is the COHN (if ADN) or COHN-S (if BSN). All others are hooey."
- It is true that you may not use the hard earned initials of COHN or COHN-S until you sit for the ABOHN exam and pass.
- And it is true that some employers require that you have or get the certification.
Whether the Canyon College program is worthwhile -- well it has been around a while but I am not sure it is recognized by the ABOHN. That might be a good place to start investigating, if they will accept the program it is probably a good one.
Hope this was helpful
