Emergency NPs Get Portfolio Credentialing Alternative
"We would like to open up to others that may be interested in having that in their area," Swartwout says. But, she adds, "it has to be a recognized area…there'd be some criteria."
However the programs transpire, they will no doubt provide a chance for nurses whose expertise is advanced and very specialized to get recognized in an area where they might not have been able to do so before, and that, say Swartwout and Deyo, is exciting news.
"We think that this is something that the nursing discipline has needed for some time," Swartwout says. "We are very excited to be able to provide that credentialing piece."
