Education & Professional Practice
Standards of practice
CANN Standards of Practice were first approved by the Board of Directors in 1983.
The development of these standards was critical to CANN’s recognition by CNA as a specialty group.
The certification credential for the neuroscience nurse is CNN(C). It is an important indicator to patients, employers, the public, and professional licensing bodies that the certified nurse is qualified, competent and current in neuroscience nursing and has met rigorous requirements to achieve this expert credential.
