Thousands of certified registered nurse anesthetists across the country will participate in the 2018 Continued Professional Certification (CPC) Program’s 2-year Check-in, the mid-point requirement in the 4-year CPC Program cycle.
This window for this simple, online process opened on April 3, 2018 for most CRNAs who recertified or initially certified in 2016. This simple next step in the CPC Program includes reviewing the pre-populated fields to confirm current licensure and active practice, updating contact information, paying the $110 credentialing fee (same fee and timing as in the past) for the upcoming two years, and checking CPC Program compliance progress (Class A, B, Core Modules).
“We know CRNAs have demanding schedules, which is why the 2-year Check-in process was designed to be a quick and easy way to maintain CPC compliance,” said John Preston, NBCRNA Chief Credentialing Officer. “Most CRNAs should be able to complete this important first step in under 10 minutes, and they can access the Check-in portal from their smart phone or computer.”
All CRNAs are urged to make sure their contact information is current, as NBCRNA reported that in recent years, they couldn’t connect with more than 5,000 certificants who had outdated contact information to provide important credentialing information.
The NBCRNA website will serve as a valuable resource for all CRNAs, providing regular updates on the 2-year Check-in to ensure a seamless process. Reminders also will be sent with a link to the Check-in portal. Visit www.nbcrna.com/CPC for CPC Program resources, videos, a toolkit, and more information, or directly about the 2-year Check-in at www.nbcrna.com/2YCI.
The NBCRNA will be in constant contact with certificants throughout the CPC Program to provide progress updates towards completion of the various requirements. Watch your inbox, follow NBCRNA on social media, and check the website for information and updates.
