Digital Badging: The Best Way to Share Your Certified Success!
What’s a Digital Badge?
Just like your hospital or organization badge shows patients, colleagues and supervisors who you are and what you do, your digital badge from BCEN identifies you as a certified emergency, trauma or transport nurse — and lets the world know that you are driven to excel. Read on to learn more about the benefits of your BCEN Digital Badge, and how you can claim yours and start sharing your success.
What are the benefits of a Digital Badge?
BCEN brings you the Digital Badge as an exclusive benefit to BCEN board certified nurses. Your Digital Badge is more than a logo or an email signature — it’s a valuable tool that can help you build the nursing career you’ve always dreamed of. Some of the benefits of Digital Badging include:
- A customized logo identifying your certification, containing metadata that details your certification
- An easy way to let current and potential employers learn more about your qualifications
- An attractive visual element you can add to your CV, email, LinkedIn and more
- A quick and simple way for employers to verify your certification.

Because your Digital Badge contains metadata detailing your certification, it can be used as a method for verification by current or potential employers. Digital Badges are backed by BCEN and are accepted as an authentic verification of your skills and achievement.
By clicking on the badge, your employer, supervisor or hiring manager will have the opportunity to verify your certification status, along with start and expiration dates. You also have the option to print a PDF of your Digital Badge for verification purposes.
