Certified Nurses are Everywhere! Campaign Update

Nov 26, 2014

The national PSA campaign - Certified Nurses are Everywhere! was launched last February by NCC in partnership with other certifying organizations.

Its purpose is simple - to inform the public that "Nurses can be nationally certified in their nursing specialty" and to briefly explain the values held by certified nurses.

Certified Nurses and Advance Practice Nurses:

  • have demonstrated their knowledge through a rigorous examination
  • choose to seek out certification
  • maintain their core specialty knowledge base through continuing competency assessments and targeted continuing education
  • keep up with the changes in health care with their commitment to life-long learning, patient advocacy and professional practice.


This PSA is currently being broadcast by network and independent stations throughout the country and has already been viewed over 225 million times. There will also be specially scheduled broadcasts during the CBS Sunday Evening News this winter on the below listed dates:
January 25, 2015
February 1, 2015
February 8, 2015
February 15, 2015
February 22, 2015

Make sure that you "tune in" to see your specialty on TV. This PSA can also be seen at or you can access on NCC's YouTube channel and SHARE IT!
