Certification Examinations

Many of you will be taking national certification examinations in your respective areas of advanced practice. Below is a list of certification organizations and companies that offer information regarding review courses/resources -- both online and live.

Review courses may also be offered in conjunction with annual conferences of major organizations. You can also search for review materials on popular commercial Web sites that sell books and media.

Please discuss any questions about these resources with the Advanced Practice Coordinator in your area.

The SON does not endorse any particular resource -- this page just provides links to information that you may decide is helpful to you.
