About BCEN

The Board of Certification for Emergency Nursing (BCEN®) is an independent, not-for-profit organization that develops robust certification programs for emergency, transport and trauma nurses.

Emergency nurses—whether they work in general or pediatric emergency care, flight and critical care ground transport, or trauma settings—must be at the peak of caregiving excellence. Board certification is a professionally recognized achievement and sought-after mark of excellence that validates specialty knowledge and expertise and empowers nurses to impact patient care, safety and outcomes.

Certification affirms you are the best you can be and delivers a constant, proven and critical confidence boost as you face healthcare’s most uncertain, demanding and dynamic environment. Certification lets patients and their families know that you possess a high level of clinical expertise and are on top of best practices. And when it comes to employers, certification distinguishes you among your peers, validates and helps ensure your ongoing competency, equips you to help your unit run safely, efficiently and productively, and positions you for maximum career success.
