PNCB Continuing Competence Summit

A virtual invitational event to be held Thursday, September 30, 2021

PNCB Continuing Competence Summit

  • 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?
  • Is your organization moving in the same direction we are exploring? 

Industry leaders and stakeholders will attend and give feedback on a multi-year research project undertaken by the Pediatric Nursing Certification Board to answer the above questions and many others. PNCB is the leading organization for pediatric nursing professionals, with more than 50,000 registered nurses and advanced practice nurses actively holding one of four specialized credentials. PNCB-certified nurses take care of some of the most vulnerable patients. 
  
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. 
  
The agenda to share our pioneering research journey with you is below. During the event, six other nursing certification organizations will share brief videos about their continuing competence journey. 

This program is pending accreditation for an estimated 4.5 CE contact hours through the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP). Final details will be shared before the event.  

Speakers will be listed soon. Please contact info@pncb.org with any questions.
