The National Board for Certification of School Nurses advances the quality of school health services & school nurse practice. Our rigorous credentialing sets the professional standard for school nursing.

The NCSN Credential

The Nationally Certified School Nurse credential reflects competence and professionalism. To earn the NCSN a Registered Nurse must demonstrate a high level of education, clinical practice experience and knowledge.


There are many opportunities to serve: state liaisons promote certification & advocate for school nursing standards, while the NBCSN Board leads the direction of the organization and the NCSN community.
