DNS-CT Certification Virtual Workshop 2/28/2023 by Celtic Consulting
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 digital workshop materials, and access to the ten certification exams. We suggest downloading and saving each PDF to a device of your choice. Although not required, you may print the PDFs at your own expense. If you decide to print your materials, please remember that changes and updates are continually incorporated into the workshop materials.
This workshop will be hosted online, through a virtual platform.
