Two Parkway nurses earn National Certified School Nurse credential

National Certified School Nurse  10/26/2018 -- Kimberly Morelli, West Middle, and Karen Malik, Green Trails Elementary, earned the Nationally Certified School Nurse (NCSN) credential, which validates their specialized knowledge and expertise as a school nurse.

 

Parkway now has 22 nationally certified school nurses, the most in the state.

 

The NCSN credential is granted to registered nurses who meet educational, employment, and other criteria, and who have successfully passed the national examination managed by the National Board for Certification of School Nurses. The NCSN process is accredited by the American Board of Nursing Specialties, whose rigorous standards ensure that the credentialing process of the NBCSN meet or exceed industry standards for certification and that its examination is reflective of the knowledge expected of the proficient school nurse.
