The Medical-Surgical Nursing Certification Board (MSNCB
) encourages you to show your colleagues and patients your commitment to excellence in practice.
With this in mind, in the spring of 2014 the Medical-Surgical Nursing Certification Board (MSNCB) and the American Academy of Ambulatory Care Nursing (AAACN) explored creation of a certification examination for care coordination and transition management.
The materials on the AAACN and MSNCB website were a great resource for the four CCCTM nurses who participated in this discussion.
"This led to my involvement in helping to establish the Medical-Surgical Nursing Certification Board (MSNCB) and developing the first medical-surgical nursing certification exam," she said.
Deirdre Bauer, a current Ambassador for AMSN and MSNCB, described her experiences as a volunteer with the organization.
She has since held many volunteer roles within AMSN, including the role of President, and she is currently an Ambassador for AMSN and MSNCB. "The lifelong friendships I have made during my years of volunteering are invaluable to me.
