Certified Success

6/17/2016

For the University of Cincinnati Medical Center (UCMC), prevention is the best way to treat injury. As the only Level One Adult trauma center in the region, UCMC has a commitment to the community to provide injury prevention.

UCMC’s trauma department believes that the TCRN® certification from the Board of Certification for Emergency Nursing (BCEN®) helps spread that awareness, and in a recent unprecedented move, UCMC’s Director of Trauma Services, Shelley Akin, RN, MSN, ACNS-BC, pushed forth an initiative - voted on by the current trauma nurse clinicians - to have all UCMC trauma nurses obtain a specialty certification by 2018.

BCEN Spotlight

7/21/2016

The Board of Certification for Emergency Nursing (BCEN®) and the Pediatric Nursing Certification Board (PNCB) have mutually agreed to dissolve the joint ownership of the Certified Pediatric Emergency Nurse (CPEN) program. As such, BCEN is now the sole owner of the CPEN exam and program. BCEN is grateful for our partnership with PNCB these past several years, as together our organizations developed and launched this much needed and valued certification. BCEN is fully committed to the continued success of the CPEN program.

Service to CPEN exam candidates and current CPENs will not be impacted by this change, and the CPEN credential remains valid for all actively certified CPENs. In addition, BCEN is working closely with the Accreditation Board for Specialty Nursing Certification (ABSNC) to ensure this change in ownership does not affect the current accreditation status of the CPEN program.
