The National League for Nursing has declared 2022 the Year of the Nurse Educator. Nurse educators are vital to preparing the future nursing workforce. Consider sharing the many benefits of being a nurse educator with your nursing colleagues. Speak words of affirmation to your students who demonstrate leadership and teaching abilities to consider nursing education in their future. And for your nursing education colleagues, continue to mentor and encourage them to become certified. Nurse educator certification demonstrates excellence and expertise in this practice specialty.

New Board of Commissioners Members

We welcomed three new members to the Board of Commissioners. They are Dr. Christopher Blackwell, Dr. Benjamin Brebonaria, and Dr. Brenda Morris. They have introduced themselves in this Newsletter.

From the Legal Desk

Linda Christensen, JD, RN, CNE

Background and use requirements for CNE® and CNE®cl

Congratulations to all the academic nurse educators who have earned the certification credential of CNE® and/or CNE®cl! You have achieved a voluntary professional certification that indicates you have met specific educational, practice, and competency testing requirements. At the time you first became certified, you would have received a letter indicating you were entitled to use the appropriate certification mark, either CNE® or CNE®cl. We are often asked questions about the appropriate use of such credentials and the following should provide clarity.

The designations, CNE® and CNE®cl, are certification marks that the NLN has registered with the federal government. The small circle that contains the capital letter “R” is the legal designation for a registered mark. After meeting the specific eligibility criteria and achieving a satisfactory score on the certification exam, the individual is entitled to use the certification credential, CNE® and/or CNE®cl, during the time period that their certification is active. A professional certification’s active time periods can vary from one certification to another. It is the responsibility of the certificant to monitor when their certification would expire and renew the certification if possible. Note that not all professional certifications can be renewed, as may be the case with progressive professional certification pathways.

What happens when an individual’s professional certification is close to expiration? If it is possible to renew the certification, the individual could do so and continue to use the professional credential following its renewal. If the individual does not renew the certification or does not meet the renewal requirements, the individual is no longer eligible to use the designation awarded with that certification, and it must be removed from the listing of one’s credentials used after their name. To leave the credential after their name after it is no longer active would be considered a fraudulent misrepresentation of the individual’s credentials, as well as a violation of NLN’s intellectual property rights. It would, however, be appropriate to list that they had the credential during a specific time frame on one’s curriculum vitae, just as one would list a former employment position.
