Start your journey to Certified in Executive Nursing Practice (CENP®) certification by studying for the exam with a cohort of colleagues. This unique AONL program combines the CENP on-demand content with weekly discussion forums during a 4-week period.

The discussion forums, with CENP faculty participation, allows participants to talk through each week’s topic(s), learn from each other and translate new executive-level competencies immediately into practice. A live session with faculty concludes the program providing key takeaways and test-taking preparation guidance.

Schedule & Dates

The CENP on-demand course takes approximately 13 hours to complete. Move through the content over a 6 week period by spending 2.5 hours per week on content as outlined below. During the facilitated portion, learn from peers and faculty through discussion forums, faculty sessions, and drop-in hours.
