Most nurses become certified in their particular specialty be in emergency nursing, med-surg, critical care, etc.

You might want to spend some time on the ANCC website (American Nurses' Credentialing Center). In the literature on their Magnet Program, they have a long list of possible certifications and the organizations that provide those certifications. It's quite a lengthy and inclusive list of all the possibilities.
