The Best Way to Prove Your Certification Status!

BCEN® recognizes the time and effort involved to earn your initial BCEN certification, and the work and commitment required for you to successfully recertify every 4 years. There is value in your well-earned credential.

Your paper certificate is nice to have and can be framed and used for display and recognition. But most employers, hiring managers, or other interested third parties require more than a piece of paper as proof of a professional credential -- as paper items can be replicated and fraudulently used.

BCEN wants to protect the integrity of your CEN®, CFRN®, CPEN®, CTRN®, or TCRN® certifcation, and also provide you with an effective way to prove your certified status.

For these reasons, the Publish Credential service is available for your use from within your BCEN Account. Publish Credential is a free service to all who are currently BCEN certified. It is easy to use and you can use it at any time and as often as needed!
