Premier Certification Programs for Nurse Leaders
AONL Credentialing Center Certification Programs offers two certification programs - Certified Nurse Manager and Leader (CNML®) and Certified in Executive Nursing Practice (CENP®) Certification. Validate your high level of knowledge and skill by becoming certified in CNML or CENP.
AONL is currently in the process of recertification of our CENP and CNML programs with the National Commission Certifying Agencies (NCAA). AONL is aware that beginning January 1, 2024, ANCC Magnet will limit inclusion only to board certifications that are accredited. We expect NCAA accreditation of both the CENP and CNML programs by the end of 2023.
AONL welcomes international candidates for the Certified Nurse Manager and Leader (CNML) and Certified in Executive Nursing Practice (CENP) certification examinations. Through the AONL International Credentials Evaluation Service, offered in collaboration with CGFNS International, Inc., foreign-educated registered nurses may verify educational, licensure/registration and employment credentials required for AONL certification exam eligibility.
