Renew Your Certification

What Does the Certification Renewal Process Look like?

The Certified Medical-Surgical Registered Nurse (CMSRN®) is valid for five years. Maintaining your credentials reaffirms your credibility. To ensure you're not stressing in the last month of your eligibility period, begin planning for certification renewal soon after becoming certified. Here are some tips to help you along the way.

Begin Your Certification Renewal

On October 30, 2020, MSNCB transferred the Care Coordination and Transition Management (CCCTM) certification program to the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).

If you hold an active CCCTM certification and are renewing, are interested in the CCCTM certification, or looking to verify CCCTM credentials, please visit the ANCC website. You may also contact ANCC at for more information
