Arkansas Nurse Informatics Certification - AR

Registered nurses in Arkansas may decide to further their educations and careers by becoming nurse informatics professionals.  Informatics professionals provide more technical services to the health care industry, such as digital medical record keeping and health care data management.  Informatics may also provide crucial interactions with patients that may require more technical training as far as rehabilitation devices and equipment.

There are several steps a registered nurse must take in order to earn an Arkansas nursing informatics certification:

  1. Earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing and practice as a registered nurse for at least two years.
  2. During the time practicing nursing, complete 30 continuing education hours toward renewing the nursing registration.
  3. During the time spent as a regular registered nurse, do one of the following:
    • Practice informatics for at least 2,000 hours at the current place of employment,
    • Practice informatics for 1,000 hours and complete 12 hours or more at a graduate level nursing informatics education program, or
    • Earn a Master’s in nurse informatics from a school recognized by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).
  4. Complete a preliminary certification application at the ANCC website and sign up for the certification exam.
  5. Pass the 175-question exam, which is offered at any of Arkansas’s Prometric computer test centers located in Little Rock, Arkadelphia, and Fort Smith. After passing the exam you are considered to have an Arkansas nursing informatics certification.
  6. Maintain the five-year certification by completing 150 continuing education credits and submitting a renewal form to the ANCC.
