BCEN Value of CEN® Certification Research Study

As part of our ongoing commitment to promote, support and advance certification research, BCEN commissioned a rigorous, large-scale study on the value of CEN® certification. The first-of-its-kind study was based on responses from over 8,800 certified and non-certified emergency nurses and over 1,000 over their supervisors. Read study highlights below.

BCEN joined forces with MedEvac Foundation and partner organizations to gain a better understanding of the current state of the emergency nursing workforce and gain a deeper understanding of the characteristics of nurses who identify as emergency, transport and trauma nurses and the issues they face.
