Wouldn't Back Down

Over the years, AACN Certification Corporation certificants have shared the realizations that ultimately motivated each individual to take the exam.

The story

"If that exam were a patient, you wouldn't back down. That's what I had to tell myself. After all my years of experience, I was terrified I wouldn't pass. And then I realized something: I save lives every day! Why should I be afraid of a test? It's all about learning and becoming better at what I do, so I can provide better care to my patients. Certification says that to the world, and most importantly, to myself. I have what it takes to become certified."
