The Purposes of National Certification
Establishes minimum knowledge and competency standards for holistic nursing practice and assures the public that the certified nurse has completed all eligibility requirements to earn a credential verifying he/she has achieved the level of knowledge and competency required for practice of holistic nursing; and recognizes nurses who have met those standards.
A New Certification Program
Recently AHNCC has developed a board certification exam for Nurse Coaching, in addition to the national Holistic Nurse certification exam. For more information and application visit www.ahncc.org or www.ahna.org.
