Value of the NCSN Testimonial

There are many reasons school nurses become nationally certified, including for personal & professional growth and to validate their expertise to the communities they serve. For some, the certification further supports a pay increase (check out our Certification Justification toolkit to help advocate for a pay increase).

Many of those who have passed the NCSN exam have found that becoming certified has increased their knowledge of school nursing, giving them more confidence, and helped to make them better school nurses.

Below is a testimonial video from NCSN Valerie Hon, about the value of the NCSN and her advice on preparing for the exam, and why you should get certified.
