Emergency nursing expertise, skill set, and career success are significantly and positively linked to the Certified Emergency Nurse (CEN®) certification according to a large-scale study announced today by the Board of Certification for Emergency Nursing (BCEN). The value of certification study, conducted by the Human Resources Research Organization (HumRRO) in late 2016 and early 2017, included responses from over 8,800 certified and non-certified ER nurses and over 1,000 supervisors of ER nurses.

“This major study, which is the first of its kind for the emergency nursing profession, clearly demonstrates both the significance and the value of the CEN. We are grateful to the thousands of nurses across the country who participated in the study and allowed us to hear their voice,” said Board of Certification for Emergency Nursing Interim Director Janie Schumaker, RN, CEN. “The study shows that CEN-certified nurses perform better than their non-certified peers, elevate the practice of nursing, and feel more empowered with their work.”
