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.
