Nurse managers willing to put themselves to the test can extend their list of credentials by another four letters.

The American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) and the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) have announced the launch of a new national nursing certification credential—CNML—the certified nurse manager and leader. The credential, which is the first designed solely for nurse managers, is intended to validate nurse leaders who demonstrate the necessary knowledge and skills to be effective in their role.

The new certification is the result of a partnership between AONE and AACN aiming to provide education, professional development, and credentialing to nurse managers across the nation.

Nurse managers must meet eligibility requirements and pass the CNML examination to become certified. More than 170 assessment centers across the country will begin CNML testing on January 5, 2009.
