AANPCP announces plan to offer Emergency NP Certification by Exam


   

The American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Program (AANPCP) is announcing plans to initiate an Emergency Nurse Practitioner certification (ENP-C). To begin this process, AANPCP entered into an agreement with the American Academy of Emergency Nurse Practitioners (AAENP) to develop a specialty certification examination for eligible nurse practitioners that will recognize their expertise in emergency care. The AANPCP (www.aanpcert.org) and AAENP (www.aaenp-natl.org) collaboration will provide a certification program that aligns with the APRN Consensus Model for specialty nursing practice and meets national accreditation standards. Details regarding the ENP-C launch date, eligibility criteria, and application process will be posted on the organizations’ websites when this information is available.

Reponses to Frequently Asked Questions regarding the certification exam are available here.

 

What Members are saying…

“Opinions regarding APRN practice in the ED have varied widely among regulatory agencies, professional organizations, hospital credentialing departments, and even APRNs themselves.  ENPs need a voice and just as in practice – we are stronger as a team.  I joined other members in Boston at AAENP’s 2nd Annual General Assembly, and gained a great deal of insight into what the future holds for us.  AAENP is the specialty organization for ENPs, and I am very excited about the future of this association and its impact on our practice!”

“As an emergency room nurse practitioner it is essential that I practice current evidence based medicine.  AAENP offers me networking opportunities and access to some of the top APRN's in our field…Emergency providers need a national organization specific to our needs and AAENP provides that.  I would encourage every emergency nurse practitioner to join this dedicated group of individuals who are committed to promoting high quality, evidence based practice.”
