NCSBN Approves CCNS Exam as Advanced Practice Criterion

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing has notified AACN Certification Corporation that the CCNS examination for clinical nurse specialists in critical care has met all advanced practice certification program criteria. This important milestone paves the way for additional individual state boards of nursing to approve the CCNS exam as a criterion for licensure.

Licensure requirements for advance practice nurses are inextricably linked to certification, and nearly half of the states require advance practice licensure for the CNS inclusive of an approved certification credential. With licensure, APNs have the ability to practice independently and collaboratively with physicians, including the authority to write prescriptions and diagnose and treat illness.

Important to the decision of the NCSBN was the implementation of new eligibility criteria for the CCNS examination by the corporation’s Board of Directors. These criteria include a master’s degree in nursing from an accredited program with specific coursework relevant to the practice of an acute and critical care CNS, including advanced pathophysiology, pharmacology, and health and physical assessment. In addition, 500 hours of clinical practice in all roles of the CNS within the master’s program are required. Provisions for CCNS candidates to make up the deficiency if their program does not provide for the required 500 hours were also defined and are effective until March 1, 2006. Additional information is available online at www.certcorp.org > CCNS > CCNS Exam Eligibility Requirements.

The CCNS exam is already approved as a criterion for advanced practice licensure in Alabama, California, Connecticut, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin. Although New Mexico and Virginia also accept the exam, they do not have a formal approval process.

AACN Certification Corporation Looks Ahead

Flaming enthusiasm, backed by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success.
—Dale Carnegie

By Jan Foster, RN, MSN, PhD, CCRN
Chair, AACN Certification Corporation

The envisioned future of AACN Certification Corporation is to be the undisputed leader in credentialing for acute and critical care nurses and to demonstrate that certification contributes to the achievement of optimal outcomes for patients and families experiencing acute and life-threatening conditions. Our mission is to provide comprehensive credentialing for nurses to ensure that their practice is consistent with established standards of excellence in caring for acutely and critically ill patients and their families.

The past year has been an accomplished one in pursuit of our mission. However, each of our achievements has been in the making for several years, with the enthusiasm and persistence of many who contributed.

Study of Practice
Many of you may have participated in the nationwide Study of Critical Care Nursing Practice, which was completed in the past year. The study was a powerful validation of our CCRN and CCNS certification exams. The results have provided us with a foundation for item revision and development of new items and exams.

This process is critical to compliance with industry standards and accreditation bodies in offering exams that are “psychometrically sound and legally defensible.” This means that certified nurses can assure their patients and families that their certification is relevant to current practice and is a valid means of demonstrating they hold a specialized body of knowledge for rendering safe care. A final analysis and report of this study will be published in the future.

PCCN Exam
Consistent with AACN Certification Corporation’s data-driven values, the PCCN certification exam for progressive care nurses that launched at NTI in May emerged from the national survey data. Because this is a new product, study materials are not yet available but are under development.

Subspecialty Exams
AACN Certification Corporation is gearing up for two additional exams. Both are subspecialty exams that will be taken after successful completion of another primary, nationally accredited certification, such as the CCRN, CCNS, FNP or CEN exam. One of the new subspecialty exams is for critical care cardiology nurses; the other is for critical care cardiothoracic nurses, with a slant toward surgical patients. Look for these exams in 2005.

CCRN Connection Online
Contributing to successful completion of the CCRN exam is the online Self-Assessment Exam, which is in revision now for a fall release. Also online is the opportunity for renewal, which has greatly streamlined the process.

Another product to facilitate certification renewal is the CE Passport, which allows you to prepay for either 25 or 50 contact hours of CE credit that can be used anytime at AACN’s Online CE Center. Inspiration for the discounted CE Passport arose from analysis of data for CCRN renewals.

CCNS Clinical Hours
The AACN Certification Corporation Board approved the 500 clinical hour eligibility requirement for the CCNS exam, which is consistent with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s Essentials of Master’s Education for Advanced Practice Nursing. As a result, the CCNS certification is now approved by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing. (See related article, page 1.) Although AACN Certification Corporation is not a licensing agency as are the state boards of nursing, it is in alignment over protection of the consumer through education, competency and standardization.

On the Horizon
Potential developments for the future include entry level and other subspecialty exams. Refinement of a research agenda will also proceed, with continued distribution and promotion of the Certification White Paper, and environmental scanning of research and other data to support the value of certification. We are committed to demonstrating that certification contributes to the achievement of optimal outcomes for patients and families experiencing acute and life-threatening conditions. What better way to “Live Your Contribution” than by proudly wearing CCRN, PCCN or CCNS on your lapel?

Computer-Based Testing Available for New and Revised Exams

The new PCCN certification exam for progressive care nurses is now available nationwide for computer-based testing. A list of testing sites by states is available online at www.goamp.com > Company > Locations.

The newly revised CCRN exams and the CCNS exams are also available at these sites year-round.
