BCCNM remote certification prepares you to carry out certain activities but working in a remote setting requires additional preparation and depends on your specific role.
BCCNM certified practice preparation focuses on an
expanded scope of practice that authorizes RNs to autonomously diagnose and treat a limited number of diseases and disorders by following
Decision Support Tools (DSTs).
However, RNs working in remote settings require other
competencies such the ability to work independently, with limited resources and to manage a broad range of practice situations, including unpredictable and complex client issues. These broader competencies may be acquired in a variety of ways such as education, experience, mentorship and employer supports.
Scope of Practice for Registered Nurses and the
Certified Practice page provide more information and guidance on BCCNM certified practice.
Your CNA certification indicates you’ve met specific nursing practice, continuous learning and exam requirements. You can find more information about CNA certification on the CNA website.
