DNS-CT Certification Virtual Workshop 11/15/2021 Celtic Consulting

Includes a Live Event on 11/15/2021 at 8:00 AM (EST)

Take your leadership and management talents to the next level with the Director of Nursing Services—Certified (DNS-CT) certification. Earning this credential validates your expertise, gives you the advantage among your peers, and helps you improve quality, communication, and resident care throughout your facility. You must be a current RN and have the equivalent of two years of full-time long-term or post-acute care experience, with a minimum of one year of experience either as a DNS or relevant nursing leadership experience to qualify. With the DNS-CT credential behind your name, it shows you have the management skills and knowledge needed to master the challenges of being a DNS. The DNS-CT credential is perfect for directors of nursing services, nursing home administrators, vice presidents of clinical services, and other long-term care professionals with management responsibilities.

Your registration includes three days of online instruction from a Master Teacher covering the ten courses of the DNS-CT program, access to the online materials used during the workshop, and access to the ten certification exams required to earn the credential.

This workshop will be hosted online, through a virtual platform.
