Nursing Specialty Certification

Medical Certifications Training ProgramsThe benefits of earning a nursing specialty certification are numerous. While it is not necessary to have a specific focus in nursing to work in many fields, having one provides enhanced employment opportunities. Due to a higher level of education, skill, and experience, those with a nursing specialty tend to earn higher wages and move up the ranks quicker.

What is involved in nursing specialty certification?

Before you begin to think about becoming certified in a specialty field of nursing, you need to make sure you have everything you need to become an RN (Registered Nurse). A high school diploma (or equivalent), a nursing degree, and a license are your starting points. When you are ready to focus on one area of nursing, you will need to attend continuing education classes at a university, hospital, or online and pass a rigorous multiple choice exam. Once you have earned your nursing specialty certification it will be valid for up to 4 years before it needs to be renewed.

How can certification help advance my career?

Earning a specialty nursing certification, allows you to explore extensive career opportunities. Some of the fields you can enter are:
  • Home Health Care: Provide in home care to patients with a variety of medical needs. This could include helping out with daily personal activities as well as providing medical care to patients in the comfort of their home.

  • Nursing Midwife: Midwifery is a highly skilled profession in this day and age. Gaining a certification as a nursing midwife gives you the opportunity to work with gynecologists, obstetricians, and, of course, many expecting mothers.

  • Travel Nursing: Travel nursing is perfect for the person that adapts well to change. In this profession, you may not be assigned to any one hospital or doctor. Occupational divisions include physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language therapy.
In addition to the fields listed above, opportunities for those with a nursing specialty certification can lead to careers working with intensive care patients, in an emergency room, and with oncology patients. The earning and career potential is endless and can even lead to careers with the (CDC) Center for Disease Control.
