There is no quantitative evidence as to how plastic and aesthetic nurses perceive the value of certification. The aim of this study was to determine how certified and noncertified plastic and aesthetic registered nurses (RNs), who are members of the International Society of Plastic and Aesthetic Nurses (ISPAN), perceive the value of certification. A secondary study aim was to compare perceptions of nurses who hold a CPSN (Certified Plastic Surgical Nurse), CANS (Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist), or both certifications with nurses who do not hold these certifications. Upon approval of the ISPAN Board of Directors, the researchers prepared a survey. The survey collected demographic information sufficient to capture a picture of the nurses participating in the survey and to compare profiles of certified and noncertified nurses. The Perceived Value of Certification Tool (PVCT)-12 was used to obtain information about the nurses' perceived extrinsic and intrinsic values of certification. Overall, the highest level of agreement was found with the intrinsic value statements. Across all 12 items of the PVCT-12, participants who held a CPSN and/or CANS certification reported greater perceptions of the value of the CPSN and CANS certifications than participants who did not hold a CPSN or CANS certification. Certified participants' intrinsic and extrinsic value scores were found to be significantly higher than noncertified participants' scores. The extrinsic value statements of the PVCT-12 were the least endorsed. Extrinsic rewards in combination with added support and recognition for nurses may be what is necessary to increase the proportion of certified nurses.
