Hi all,

I just got certified in Nursing Informatics through ANCC today, yay! I am also certified as an RNC-NIC and now I'm not sure how to display my credentials. Would it be (Name), MSN, RN-BC, RNC-NIC?

I am also studying for a sub-specialty certification (C-ELBW), would that just go at the very end when/if I earn that?

Thank you! :)

You wouldn't write "RN/RNC" twice, because that would be redundant. I would probably put:

Name, MSN, RN-BC, C-NIC. And yes, the C-ELBW would go last

Actually, he or she would use RNC-NIC as that is the name of the certification.

Okay that's where I was getting confused. So MSN, RN-BC, RNC-NIC, while redundant, would be considered correct?
