A Community of Exceptional Nurses
The Retired CCRN, Retired CCRN-E and Retired PCCN designations are intended to recognize a certified nurse's years of service caring for acutely and critically ill patients and to acknowledge their dedication to having been certified.
Retirement from clinical practice can take place for many reasons including illness or disability, career change or choice. Many nurses would like to stay connected, no matter which path they choose. The Retired CCRN, Retired CCRN-E and Retired PCCN designations are points on a career map that allow a nurse to demonstrate their professional value.
"Retired CCRN", "Retired CCRN-E" or "Retired PCCN" written out, may be used on your resume or below your name and credentials on a business card, but may not be used after your signature or on a name badge.
The Retired CCRN, Retired CCRN-E and Retired PCCN designations are renewable every three years.
Payable in U.S. Funds. Fees are subject to change without notice.
