In 2008, PNCB developed this exam with the Board of Certification for Emergency Nursing (BCEN[R]).
In the summer of 2008, PNCB nurse researchers and volunteer pediatric nursing experts developed a survey to determine nurses' perceptions of certification on job satisfaction and other factors.

In order to explore circumstances related to maintenance of certification, the PNCB developed a survey to explore reasons why some nurses consistently maintained their certification while others allowed their certification to lapse.
Data were collected using two surveys respectively mailed to nurses who had maintained (n = 275) and not maintained (n = 317) CPN[TM] generalist pediatric nursing certification through the PNCB.
Through its national PNP Program Review process the PNCB has supported and reviewed educational programs for compliance with quality guidelines for PNP education established by the Association of Faculty of PNP Programs (AFPNP) in their Position Statement, Philosophy, and Conceptual Model for the Education of PNP's (AFPNP, 1996).
Permission was granted by the PNCB providing access to PNP curricula collected from the 84 PNP programs participating in the PNCB's PNP program review process.
Information about 18 programs came from the self-report survey, while information from the remaining 60 programs was obtained by a direct review of program materials submitted to the PNCB.
