Congratulations to school nurse Jan Brant on her selection by the National Board for Certification of School Nurses (NBCSN) to serve on their Pool Review Committee expert panel. Jan will attend the National Association of School Nurses 48th Annual Conference in Indianapolis this summer to serve on the panel, whose work will provide the foundation for future NBCSN exams.
Jan is one of 44 certified school nurses in the state of Maryland. While not required in Maryland, certification is mandatory in other states; passing rate for the exam was only 50 percent in 2012.
The NBCSN Pool Review Committee periodically reviews every test question that candidates may see on the exam to ensure that the content is still current and accurate. Pool reviewers will also research and provide updated references for test questions as needed.
Congratulations again to Jan!Back to The Latest
