Certification of Multiple Sclerosis Nurses: an International Perspective
MetadataShow full item record
The Multiple Sclerosis Nursing International Certification Board was formed as a special initiative of the International Organization of Multiple Sclerosis Nurses (IOMSN). The aim was to develop a certification examination for MS nursing practice. This certification should achieve the vision of the IOMSN and unite MS nurses worldwide through standard practices. Such practices are based on common knowledge and skills, and tasks that encourage the best outcome for the nurse-patient collaborative relationship. Certification allows recognition of an individual nurse's skill level, establishes a standard for all nurses treating patients with MS, improves patient care, and also benefits the neurological community. The Multiple Sclerosis Certified Nurse is revolutionary, as certification is an international effort to enhance and standardize MS care and develop MS nurse professionalism across borders.
