AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep is designed to prepare RNs to take the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) board certification exam in gerontological nursing. It does that. RNs who complete the Gero Nurse Prep program have a passing rate of 96 percent on the ANCC exam on their first try and they also receive 30 CEUs.
But AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep does much more. It increases RNs’ knowledge of gerontological nursing practice. Gero Nurse Prep students see a whopping 23 percentage point increase on average on their pre- and post-test scores.
Attendees at the 68th annual AHCA/NCAL Convention and Expo in Las Vegas will have the opportunity to learn how Gero Nurse Prep and ANCC board certification correlate to improved outcomes in long term care. A one- hour session titled “My RN is Smarter Than Your RN” will be held on Tuesday, October 17 and will feature four speakers who will detail how board certification in gerontological nursing is attained and the positive impact certification can have on quality and financial performance.
ANCC is the world’s largest and most prestigious nurse credentialing organization and a subsidiary of the American Nurses Association. Less than one percent of America’s RNs are board certified in gerontological nursing. That means having an ANCC Board certified RN can easily give providers an edge in the marketplace.
To help increase the number of board certified RNs, AHCA/NCAL’s Gero Nurse Prep program is designed to help RNs prepare for and pass the ANCC gerontological certification exam. RNs who are interested can become board certified for less than $1,100 ($690 for AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep and a separate $395 to take the ANCC exam).
Maximize your nursing strength. Check out AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep today and plan to attend the “My RN is Smarter Than Your RN” educational session at convention this October.
