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.

Here is a link to the eligibility requirements: Ambulatory Care Nursing Certification Eligibility Criteria - American Nurses Credentialing Center - ANCC
