A Community of Exceptional Nurses
Exam security is paramount to protecting patients, families and certified nurses. When we compromise the value of certification, we compromise the credentials that validate our knowledge in our specialty.
AACN's values of accountability, integrity and stewardship translate directly into upholding the value of certification. Thus, we will:
Be accountable to uphold and consistently act in concert with ethical values and principles.
Act with integrity by communicating openly and honestly, keeping promises, honoring commitments and promoting loyalty in all relationships.
Demonstrate stewardship through fair and responsible management of resources.
