The CNRN certification program is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Specialty Nursing Certification, Inc.  ABSNC is the standard setting body for specialty nursing certification programs.  Accreditation means that a nationally recognized accrediting body has determined that the CNRN credential is based on a valid and reliable testing process and that the structures in place to administer the examinations meet and even exceed the standards of the certification industry from a legal, regulatory and association management perspective.  For more information about the ABSNC accreditation process and standards, please visit their website at www.nursingcertification.org.
