This YouTube video outlines the CNL Certification process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5gvoz0u1r0
We highly encourage you to take the CNL certification exam. Professional certification is a prestigious standard that will promote your career and allow you to use the credentials ‘CNL’. National certification is highly valued in our profession and should be included on your resume/CV. In addition, many institutions offer financial incentive to certified nurses.
Augusta University’s goal is to have an 80% certification rate for graduates of the MSN Clinical Nurse Leader program. Have a look at the CNL certified nurses in Georgia…let’s make that number grow! http://www.aacn.nche.edu/cnl/publications-resources (look under CNL Directory, CNLs listed by State).
