Is there a standard way to list objectives in the submissions that ask for objectives? For example, a presentation given but there was not an objectives slide at the time. Assume they are then written here based on the material, but is there a standard format?

Question:
CEs: If conference CEs were already entered individually rather than grouped by specialty into 1 entry, can this be left individually?

Answered March 29, 2024
The CEs from a conference should be grouped into one entry, and is a PGP requirement as shown in the handbook, and has been in our handbooks using this method since 2020.

Thank you for your question. Please review page 9 and 10 of 2024 PGP handbook. Yes you can enter ceu's in increments


Question:
Is the cwocn called clinical nurse specialist?

Answered November 17, 2017
Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNS) are registered nurses who typically hold a master's degree, at minimum, along with national certification denoting advanced knowledge and clinical skills specific to a particular patient population or specialized area of nursing. Therefore, this designation (CNS) is not issued by our credentialing body, WOCNCB, but rather by a state board of nursing or perhaps given by the university while earning the MSN. In some states, it is a practice-based designation to use CNS.
