Nursing Certification

Nursing certification validates that nurses have met stringent requirements for knowledge and experience and are qualified to provide competent specialty care.

St. Vincent’s encourages all nurses who provide care to become certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).

  • Certification programs are rigorous and meet nationally recognized standards.
  • ANCC certification is a sound and legally defensible measurement of nursing knowledge.
  • The certification programs are accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies and the American Board of Nursing Specialties (ABNS).
  • These independent accrediting bodies have established nationally acknowledged standards and criteria for the recognition of certification programs and use rigorous processes to determine whether programs meet their standards.
