Recertification is available to individuals who have already earned their DNS-CT certification. To maintain your DNS-CT certification, you must recertify every two years. The current recertification requirements include taking and passing the exam for the following course:
- DNS-CT Recertification Course (2.5 CEs)
Following completion of the course, you will be able to:
- Highlight the dynamic and complex nature of the healthcare system
- Explain the impact on the SNF DNS role related to regulatory, reimbursement, and quality issues
- Review core competencies of the DNS role within a SNF
If you do not meet the recertification requirements within 30 days after the expiration date of your certification, you will no longer be entitled to use the DNS-CT credential. If you choose to recertify after the 30-day grace period, you will be required to take and pass the final exams for the complete 10-course DNS-CT certification program.
