Exams based on the 2013 CPEN Content Outline became available on February 6, 2013.
The Pediatric Nursing Certification Board (PNCB) and the Board of Certification for Emergency Nursing (BCEN®) have developed the Certified Pediatric Emergency Nurse (CPEN) exam. BCEN and the PNCB are equal partners in the development and delivery of this certification exam.
If you are a pediatric emergency nurse who provides urgent and emergent nursing care to pediatric patients and their families, you'll want to learn more about becoming a Certified Pediatric Emergency Nurse. Earning your CPEN credential demonstrates that you have extensive experience and the knowledge and abilities related to pediatric emergency nursing care beyond basic RN licensure.
