SECTION 1300.APPENDIX A ADDITIONAL CERTIFICATIONS ACCEPTED FOR LICENSURE AS AN ADVANCED PRACTICE NURSE



Section 1300.APPENDIX A   Additional Certifications Accepted for Licensure as an Advanced Practice Nurse

 

Pursuant to Section 1300.400(a)(3), the Division, upon recommendation of the Board, has approved the following certifications.  Acceptance of these certifications is based on the absence of an advanced practice nurse examination in the area of the nursing specialty.  If the certifying body develops and offers an advanced practice nurse examination in the area of the nursing specialty, then an applicant as an APN would be required to pass the advanced practice nurse examination rather than the generalist examination in order for the Division to accept the certification for licensure.
