The National Board for Certification of School Nurses (NBCSN) advances the quality of school health services and school nurse practice. Our rigorous credentialing defines the professional standard for school nursing.

The NCSN Credential

The Nationally Certified School Nurse credential reflects competence and professionalism. To earn the NCSN a 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.
