The Stroke Certified Registered Nurse (SCRN) credential formally recognizes the attainment and demonstration of a unique body of knowledge necessary for the practice of stroke nursing beyond basic nursing preparation. Stroke nursing is the diagnosis and treatment of actual or potential patient responses to nervous system function and dysfunction across the healthcare continuum.
SCRN status is granted for five years and is renewed through validation of continuing education or re-examination.
ABNN is an independent, not-for-profit corporation established to design, implement and evaluate a certification program for professional nurses involved in the specialty practice of neuroscience nursing.
