Promoting Excellence in Nursing Certification

ABNS Assembly Meetings, held annually the first weekends of March and October at various locations throughout the country, allow members and participants to discuss issues of common interest related to specialty nursing certification. Each Assembly Meeting provides a variety of valuable networking opportunities, including “ABNS Certification University,” an educational offering designed to help attendees gain more knowledge about testing, assessment strategies and management of certification organizations. Meeting participants will also have the opportunity to attend a formal meeting of the Assembly, allowing for the conduct of ABNS business.
