The Canadian Nurses Association offers certification in 17 specialty areas. The certification credential is part of a respected national certification program. Certification became available to Canadian community health nurses in 2006. It provides official recognition by nursing colleagues and health system stakeholders of the unique community practice focus and that certified nurses are qualified, competent, and current in the practice of community health nursing. The official designation letters, CCHN(C), are engraved on the pin provided to candidates who have successfully passed the rigorous national practice and knowledge requirements of the certification exam. CHNAC encourages you to wear your pin with pride.
