The review course prepares registered nurses with a bachelor's degree or higher in nursing, and mid-level administrative or higher managerial positions, to become board certified in nursing administration through the American Nurse Credentialing Center (ANCC).Â

For eligibility criteria, please refer to the ANCCâ€™s website.
The two-day course will be led by Joshua Gunter, MSN, RN, NEA-BC, CCRN-CMC. Gunter is the chief nursing officer for Select Specialty Hospital in Birmingham, Ala.
