Advanced Genetics Nursing

The ANCC certification through portfolio is an alternative assessment method for credentialing individual registered nurses in their specialty area. Nurses document their skills, knowledge, abilities, and career accomplishments as part of the application and assessment process. Certification through portfolio requires rigor equivalent to that of examinations to meet accrediting bodies’ criteria to determine proficiency through a peer review process informed by nurse experts.

 Nurses certified through the ANCC portfolio assessment method are regarded as experts in their specialties and are considered to be among the highest-qualified nurses in the world. These credentials foster both professional growth and job satisfaction while demonstrating a nurse’s commitment to providing excellent care.
