Who Can Apply to Serve on a Committee
Practicing school nurses who have achieved NCSN are eligible.
The Accreditation Board for Specialty Nursing Certification, Inc. (ABSNC) requires input from subject matter experts (SMEs) in the development of the NBCSN certification exam. SMEs with a variety of clinical practice skills and levels of experience, and who represent a diverse geographic and demographic background are needed to help NBCSN create an appropriate exam.
Practicing school nurses across the country who are NCSN provide exactly the expertise needed to assure a fair and representative exam.
Your contributions as a volunteer for NBCSN help assure that certification represents a national standard of preparation, knowledge, and practice. We appreciate your willingness to contribute to the NCSN exam process.
