Hi I'm looking into getting neonatal specialty certification. Which route is the best to go, CCRN or RNC?

llg, PhD, RN

Specializes in Nursing Professional Development. Has 44 years experience.

I believe the BEST one is the one that is most common among the nurses that your work with -- the predominant one in your particular NICU. It is usually best to have the credential that most of your colleagues are really familiar with and respect.

Both are respectable though, and if one appeals to you far more than the other ... then it's OK to choose based on your particular preference.
