Recognition for Nurses

Luncheons during special event weeks. A monthly reception honoring new CPNs... These are all great ways to support your staff and encourage others to seek certification. Below are more ideas for honoring certified staff. If you have additional thoughts to share, please email

The Wall of Distinction

Creating a PNCB Wall of Distinction tells your nurses that you value their commitment to certification and explains this important professional milestone to the public. For details on how to create your own Wall, or to see what others have done, see our Wall of Distinction webpage.

Share the News

Use our sample press release (Word) to announce newly Certified Pediatric Nurses in hospital newsletters or local papers.

Pinning Ceremonies

Nurses who achieve PNCB certification receive a free lapel pin displaying their credential. If you are planning an event to honor newly certified RNs, consider coordinating a pinning ceremony to acknowledge their achievement.

"5 or More" Hospital Recognition

Did you know that the PNCB recognizes healthcare facilities with five or more Certified Pediatric Nurses on staff? Hospitals achieving this distinction receive a certificate of recognition from the PNCB for the pursuit of excellence by their CPNs® and are welcome to share a photo of their PNCB-certified nurses for posting on our website.
