I appreciate the article and understand some barriers why some nurses do not pursue a certification. I appreciate AMSN's offering of CEs, which are not hard to obtain unlike other nursing organizations, such as ANA. I have been a member of ANA for over 20 years, but the ease of obtaining CEs is better with AMSN than ANA. When I need to renew my nursing license & have to list all CEs that I've taken, my AMSN account is an easy access to give me my CE info.

Great topic and a topic that would benefit from future research. Monetary factors is what I have found for most nurses inability or reluctance with certification.

What a great study of the reasons why nurses pursue/maintain their CMSRN! I have heard all kinds of reasons why nurses pursue or don't pursue certification during interviews over the years. I always regard it as a commitment to one's career and the profession.
