Tool Kit

A downloadable packet has been created to help guide you through the process of advocating for your certification within your employment setting.

Use information from this packet to assist requests for payment or reimbursement for successfully passing the NCSN exam, for requesting remuneration for being nationally certified (annual stipend or other compensation), to explain the importance and relevance of national certification to legislators, school administrators, parent groups, and individual parents. Use this information in any way you see fit to justify the recognition of national school nurse certification.
