What is Certification

CERTIFICATION SERVES AS AN ADDED CREDENTIAL BEYOND NURSING EDUCATION AND LICENSURE.

  • Certification granted by the RNCB is pursuant to a voluntary procedure intended solely to test for special knowledge.
  • The RNCB does not purport to license, to confer a right or privilege upon, nor otherwise to define qualifications of any person for nursing practices.
  • The significance of certification is determined by appropriate institutions and appropriate state boards of nursing or institutions in order to determine practice implications.
