Note on Licensure: The post-master's certificate program in Nurse Executive, Nursing Education, or Nursing Informatics is not a licensure-leading program and will not prepare students as nurse practitioners.
Note on Certification: The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Informatics Nursing board offers a competency-based examination that provides an assessment of the entry-level clinical knowledge and skills of registered nurses in the informatics specialty after initial RN licensure which leads to national certification. Walden Enrollment Specialists can provide general information relating to national certification exams; however, it remains the individual’s responsibility to understand, evaluate, and comply with all requirements relating to national certification exams for the state in which he or she intends to practice. Walden makes no representations or guarantee that completion of Walden coursework or programs will permit an individual to obtain national certification. For more information about the ANCC Informatics Nursing board national certification exam visit www.nursecredentialing.org/InformaticsNursing
Note on CCNE Accreditation: The post-master's certificate programs in Nurse Executive, Nursing Education, and Nursing Informatics are not programs that are eligible to be reviewed by CCNE. Only APRN post-master's certificate programs are eligible for CCNE accreditation.
Note on Field Experience and Relocating
Students who are considering relocating are advised to contact their Student Success Advisor prior to any decision to relocate in order to determine how relocation may impact progress in their program. Advisors can provide information and guidance on how relocating may result in possible changes, restrictions, and/or additional requirements affecting field experience. Each Board of Nursing and Higher Education Authority governs the field experience rules and regulations in their respective states, and students may be unable to complete field experience in the state in which they plan to relocate. While Walden is committed to working collaboratively with students to secure field sites across the United States, it is imperative that students contact their Student Success Advisor immediately when considering relocating.
