The Pediatric Nursing Certification Board (PNCB) was disappointed that pediatrics as a stand-alone specialty was omitted from the guide. While pediatric subspecialties were included in great number, your guide does not mention the Certified Pediatric Nurse (CPN) certification with more than 30,000 active credential holders and our two Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (CPNP) credentials offered in Acute Care and Primary Care. More than 22,000 APRNs hold a CPNP credential. I had previously reached out to two of your team members with no reply. With diminishing pediatric undergraduate content being reported nationwide in so many RN programs, pediatric nursing – regardless of the certification aspect – needs all the visibility it can get. Children and adolescents are not little adults. As a vulnerable population, they need specialized care whether for routine check-ups and procedures or for significant, complex in-patient care. Please include general pediatric nursing and PNP practice in your next edition—or reach out to us now for a much-needed addendum to the current publication. Thank you.
