Qualification or Certification?

Recorded On: 05/08/2017

Employers are fighting for employees and looking for ways to promote their organization. One way to promote quality for an organization is to recognize their nurses’ skills. Nurses are competing for their dream job and need to promote their skill sets to be considered. Both situations result in nurses ­highlighting specific special skill sets to others. Terms often used for this highlighted focus is qualification or certification. While these terms are frequently used interchangeably, they mean very different things. This session will delineate between qualification and certification and discuss the value each brings to the nurse when competing for positions.

Learning Objectives

After the session, attendees will be able to identify the difference between ­qualification and certification and the value of each.
