CBUNA Announces Advanced Practice Exam Changes
After an investigation into the need for and utilization of Advanced Practice certification, the Certification Board for Urologic Nurses and Associates (CBUNA) reports that it will be deleting two testing groups. Physician Assistants will no longer be offered the urology certification exam after May 31, 2010. Clinical Nurse Specialists will only be offered the Urology Registered Nursing exam through May 31, 2011.
If you wish to pursue CBUNA Certification as a CUCNS, it is highly recommended that you begin the application process as soon as possible. The Advanced Practice certification exam will be offered to Clinical Nurse Specialists in October 2010 and for the last time May 14, 2011, after which time they will only be offered the CURN exam.
