The Canadian Nurses Association offers specialty certifications for specialties such as cardiovascular, gerontology, neuroscience, perianesthesia, and more. Just wondering what exactly the point is other than being a resume booster and another thing that requires proven continued education and constant renewals. The CNA website is great at explaining how to get one, but doesn't really tell me why I should. Would anyone be able to explain to me the benefits of being certified? Does it increase your salary or help you find management jobs? Would it benefit those looking to advance to an educator role?
I've been working for a long while now yet I've never come across a CNA [Canadian Nurse's Association] certified nurse. I want to switch roles and came across their website. What benefits do they actually provide?
Thank you in advance!
