Eligibility Requirements for Recertification

Eligibility requirements for recertification and the rationales for those requirements are publicly available.

At the time that the CPSN, and later the CANS, were created, the PSNCB Board met and considered what would be required for test candidates, and used the ABSNC requirements as a basis for developing the application. They also looked within the specialty, to determine the specific rationale of what should be required for a candidate to sit for their initial examination, as well as what should be required for a candidate to recertify.
