One of the issues I’ve been grappling with is the current trend of people collecting certifications in areas they don’t work in. Just so they can have bragging rights. They do this by using review courses and cramming to take the exam.
In some cases the certifications don’t have a practice component so all they are doing is collecting knowledge.
I think this is bad for certifications, and for specialty nursing.
As I research both areas. I”m going to post my thoughts and what I find.
