Free CE: PNCB Continuing Competence Summit Module 1: History and Background
When a certified nursing professional renews their credential, what does that mean for the nurse, the profession, and health care consumers? What emerging methods to document competence should certification boards consider for the future?
In 2021, PNCB convened a stakeholder summit of industry leaders and other constituents to share findings for a multi-year research project on continuing competence and answer the above questions and others.
In module 1 of this 3-part video series, you’ll walk through PNCB’s recertification history and the “why” behind this initiative to make Recert more meaningful for nurses, the profession, health care consumers, and employers.
Through our Continuing Competence Initiative, we engaged nurses, employers, the public, and industry leaders. These stakeholders responded with robust feedback about PNCB's current certification renewal process—and new possibilities. Our unique methodology incorporated ethnographic interviews throughout the health care landscape to understand the culture of competence. We also fielded multiple surveys, analyzed competency models throughout the U.S., and validated conceptual constructs with the aim of making recertification more meaningful for all involved.
