Progressive Care Certified Nurse (PCCN)

Progressive Care nurses deserve to be certified! PCCN certification is for nurses who work in high acuity areas such as ICU stepdown units, DOU, telemetry, PACU, and urgent care. Patient acuity reflects more complex diagnoses and problematical discharge planning. Nursing is evolving and today’s Progressive Care nurse is expected to have a broad knowledge base, superior clinical and critical thinking skills, as well as expertise in leadership, communication, and interpersonal relationships.

Progressive Care certified nurses are in high demand by employers. A nurse may seek certification for personal achievement, a challenge, professional credibility, financial gain, or other reasons. An employer knows a Progressive Care certified nurse is motivated and has validated their knowledge and skills. Healthcare is incredibly competitive and there already exists a shortage of nurses. Hospitals must make themselves more appealing to potential consumers by having the ability to advertise they have a nursing staff that has achieved specialty certification.
