CRNBC-certified practices are restricted activities that registered nurses cannot carry out until they have been certified by CRNBC.
CRNBC registers RNs in the following
certified practice areas:
OPTION 1: If you hold current practising NP status and passed the American Nurses Credentialing Center exam (or equivalent) and the CRNBC Nurse Practitioner OSCE
OPTION 2: If you are eligible for, or currently hold, provisional NP status or full NP status, but have not passed the American Nurses Credentialing Center exam (or equivalent) and the CRNBC Nurse Practitioner OSCE
OPTION 1: Coursework
OPTION 2: Practice Experience
Decision Support Tool (DST) is an evidence-based document used by RNs with certified practice to assess, diagnosis and treat client-specific problems.
RNs with certified practice designation are entered on the CRNBC register for the appropriate certified practice category.
To remain on the register, RNs with certified practice designation must meet specific
quality assurance requirements.
