Credentialing is a peer-reviewed process that acknowledges advanced standing as an Emergency Nurse.
It sets a standardised benchmark for the recognition of specialised practice and is a strategy that can be used to promote the provision of quality health care within the emergency nursing specialty.
Why become a Credentialed Emergency Nurse (CEN)?
Credentialing validates specialised knowledge, enhances professional credibility and indicates achievement of specialist nursing standards by an individual nurse.
What is the background?
CENA has been a partner in a national credentialing project for the past 4 years and this year will develop an independent program based on the specific needs of emergency nurses. During the original project, 20 emergency nurses were funded to submit applications and since the project’s end, 27 emergency nurses have been credentialed.
How do I become credentialed?
Currently the CENA program is under development so applications have temporarily been suspended. It is the hope that the new program will be launched in October, coinciding with ICEN 2018 and that applications can again be submitted after that time.
