Certification in Neuroscience Nursing
In October 1987, CANN’s application for Neuroscience Nursing was accepted for designation as the first nursing specialty for certification under CNA’s program. The certification credential for the neuroscience nurse is CNN(C). It is an important indicator to patients, employers, the public and professional licensing bodies that the certified nurse is qualified, competent and current in neuroscience nursing and has met rigorous requirements to achieve this expert credential.
