Nursing certification as elective credit??

  1. 0
    Has anyone had success with submitting copies of nursing certifications or their nursing elective credit? I have read on different topics of people submitting TNCC and receiving credit. When I emailed my advisor she said no. Just wondering if the advisors are all on the same page. I did submit TNCC and ENPC and I'm waiting for the official response.

    My understanding is that you cannot use courses to satisfy the elective, which is probably why TNCC will not work. Same with ACLS. I had no problems getting them to accept my RNC. You need to have a certification, not a course completion. Hope this helps.

    To follow up on the AP: CEN would likely count, TNCC would not. CCRN would count, ACLS would not.

    ANCC counts.

    American Nurses Credentialing Center. They're the people that are also responsible for "Magnet" designation.

    CCRN is what most people go for to satisfy the elective.

    I have my CVRN as well and I wonder if they accept that. I didn't ask, though.

    They took my CEN in place of an elective. Paid $25 towards it. It worked out fine. I believe it does have to be a certification.

    Do you think they would accept OCN (Oncology Certified Nurse)? It's an ANCC certification.

    I had my psych ANCC cert accepted, so I don't see why not...that being said, I'd still double-check with them to make sure.
