North Carolina Nurse Informatics Certification - NC

In order to earn the nurse informatics certification from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), the credentialing exam must be passed. Candidates are approved for the exam after all documents are submitted and eligibility requirements meant. 

The ANCC requires that candidates are registered nurses (RN) with experience.  They must have at least 2 years full time experience and hold licensure.  In North Carolina, all RNs are required to have a valid license through the North Carolina Board of Nursing.  Candidates must have at least a bachelor’s degree in a nursing or a field related to nurse informatics and have practice hours in nursing informatics.  These practice hours along with 30 hours of continuing education must have been completed in the last three years.  The practice hour requirements are either 200, 1000, or 2000 hours.  If only 200 hours are completed, candidates must have completed a nursing informatics graduate program.  If 1000 hours are completed, then 12 semester hours from a graduate nursing informatics program must also be completed.

There is an application that must be completed.  Along with the application, an application fee of $390, photocopies of RN licensure, and official transcripts confirming degrees earned must be submitted.  If the credential is earned there are several things that must be done to maintain North Carolina nurse informatics certification and to work in the state in this field.  The RN-BC must be renewed every 5 years by submitting the renewal application, fee of $350, and proof of professional development hours.  Also North Carolina RN licensure must be renewed every two years.  There is not a North Carolina nursing informatics certification; rather they honor the ANCC certification.
