Certified Nurses Celebrate at Special Luncheon

A new mission and vision for AACN Certification Corporation were unveiled at the annual Certification Luncheon during AACN’s National Teaching Institute™ and Critical Care Exposition in May 2001 in Anaheim, Calif.

Patricia McGaffigan, RN, MS, 2000-01 chair, said the new wording is intended to be less broad and ambiguous than in previous years.

“The AACN Certification Corporation provides comprehensive credentialing for nurses who establish and maintain standards of excellence in acute and critical care nursing and who contribute to the achievement of optimal health outcomes for persons experiencing acute and life-threatening illness,” reads the new mission statement.
The refined vision is: As a leader in credentialing, the AACN Certification Corporation is dedicated to fostering optimal health outcomes for acute and critically ill patients through the creation of trustworthy healthcare environments where the knowledge and competencies of nurses are driven by the needs of patients.

McGaffigan also outlined the goals of AACN Certification Corporation for the coming year. These are:
• To ensure standards-based, high-quality and relevant programs and services
• To define and validate outcomes of certification and certified practice
• To promote and enhance the value of certification

Increased attention will also be given to the CCRN liaison program, which has grown to 1,200 liaisons who promote the importance of certification to their colleagues, patients and administrators, McGaffigan said.

Certified nurses attending the luncheon also heard from Chris Foster, a director in the healthcare practice division of Burson-Marsteller, the perception management firm hired to help increase awareness of certification.

Before Foster began his presentation, McGaffigan took time to recognize CCRNs for their years of service. Several dozen had more than 20 years’ experience, and received enthusiastic applause from the 1,500 attendees.

“There is so much energy, there is so much commitment ... you can feel the energy around the room,” Foster commented. “When you look at those who have been involved and have made personal and professional sacrifices to gain and maintain certification, when you hear the success stories and when you think about the time you have taken to go the extra step, it is very, very impressive.”

Part of Burson-Marsteller’s plan involves gaining recognition for critical care nurses, both on an individual basis and on a nationwide scale.

Citing the more personal significance of certification, Foster said, “Forty-four thousand certified critical care nurses can’t be wrong.”

While interviewing focus groups of AACN members, Burson-Marsteller found that more than 90% of nurses said being able to provide the highest level of critical care to their patients as the reason for pursuing certification.

“There is a personal passion associated with the credential. We have to raise the level of understanding to make that known,” Foster said.

Part of the firm’s approach will be to create platforms where nurses and hospitals can tell their stories to the local communities, he said. There are also plans to take the message of certification to hospital administrators and legislators, so that critical care nurses will have a voice in the national healthcare debate.

Foster said the value already associated with certification will make the job easier.

“The credential is the promise to deliver the highest level of patient care,” Foster said, adding that nurses are the most trusted of the healthcare professionals.

3-Person CCRN Exam Discount Extended Through End of the Year

The three-person CCRN certification exam fee discount has again been extended, this time through Dec. 31, 2001. Under the three-person discount offer, each applicant saves $45 off the fee regularly collected. The discounted exam fee is $175 for AACN members and $255 for others.

To be eligible for the discount, applications must be accompanied by the “3-Person Discount Flyer,” which is included with the application materials. The flyer can also be printed from the AACN Certification Corporation Web site at www.certcorp.org, or requested by calling (800) 899-2226 or e-mailing certcorp@aacn.org.

All applications and payments, along with the flyer, must be returned in one envelope. However, co-applicants are not required to take the exam at the same time. Confirmation letters are sent within three to four weeks after applications are submitted. Applicants then have 90 days to take the exam.

The 200-item, multiple choice CCRN examination is administered year-round in a computer-based format at more than 300 locations nationwide.
