Is CPR a professional certification?

  1. I am filling out an application and it is asking me for any professional licenses and certifications. There is a slot for "profession". I do not know what to put. I am applying for a new grad residency program because I take my test next month. I don't know what I would put and I cannot enter cerification without completing that field!

    Your profession is nursing. "Professional certification" usually refers to specialty certifications, the kind that you list on your badge with your credentials (e.g., I am a PMHCNS-BC). CPR would usually not be considered a professional certification.

    However, if you're having difficulty with the application, your best bet is to contact the organization to which you're applying and ask for advice and guidance.

    Best wishes, and good luck with your application!
