Mark Your AHCA/NCAL Convention Calendar: Education Session Will Discuss the Path to Smarter Geriatric Nursing

Attendees at the 68th annual AHCA/NCAL Convention and Expo in Las Vegas will have the opportunity to learn how American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) board certification correlate with improved outcomes in long term care. 
A one-hour session titled “My RN is Smarter Than Your RN: Case Study Benefits of the Gero Nurse Program” will be held on Tuesday, October 17 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific.  
This session will feature four speakers who will detail how board certification in gerontological nursing is attained and the positive impact certification can have on quality and financial performance. 
AHCA/NCAL convention attendees are encouraged to attend this important education session and learn how to help RNs maximize their geriatric nursing strength and positively impact financial and quality performance. More information on this session can be found here.
AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep is designed to prepare RNs to take the ANCC board certification exam in gerontological nursing. RNs who complete the Gero Nurse Prep program have a passing rate of 96 percent on the ANCC exam on their first try and they also receive 30 CEUs
But AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep does much more- it increases RNs’ knowledge of gerontological nursing practice. Gero Nurse Prep students see a whopping 23 percentage point increase on average on their pre- and post-test scores. 
ANCC is the world’s largest and most prestigious nurse credentialing organization and a subsidiary of the American Nurses Association. Less than one percent of America’s RNs are board certified in gerontological nursing, which means that having an ANCC Board certified RN can easily give providers an edge in the marketplace.
