The CHNAlberta Board has approved the Certification Sponsorship Project in order to support CHNAlberta members in obtaining the CCHN(C) Certification Designtation (Certified in Community Health Nursing Canada) offered by the Canadian Nurses Association and to increase the number of certified community health nurses in Alberta.
CHNAlberta members are invited to appy for funding to write CHN certification exams. Applicants who are selected will have access to online resources to support exam preparation and will have a portion of the exam fee reimbursed by CHNAlberta, upon receipt of successful results. It is an expectation that those who receive funding will choose to "pay-it-forward" through future work with CHNAlberta and/or within the nursing community in ways that enhance the certification mandate.
The next certification exam will be written in the fall of 2018. The application submission deadline is July 15, 2018.
