Apparently the discussion about what is happening with ANCC is running rampant on the Listserv...when a topic runs amuck on the listserv it generates a lot of interesting....but often incorrect...information.
My suggestion is to bring the dialogue here...if you are a lurker on this blog and have questions about the processes bring them here. If you have friends who are concerned...bring them here....we can talk in a reasonable environment and ensure that the facts are shared among us and discussed fully. Also, if we come to a conclusion that something needs to be asked or discussed at the LACE (licensure, accreditation, certification, and education) table then I can do that on behalf of CNSs everywhere regardless of your specialty.
I am your official representative to the LACE dialogue...you can get your questions answered here or I can ask them at the official table and bring back the answers...take advantage of that opportunity and share that with your friends who may not be lurking....together we can be aware, we can stay the course of recognition of CNSs in every state, and we can make this work for all of us. We just need to be actively, proactively, engaged.
