Achieving certification in nurse life care planning gave me the confidence to start an independent practice and is an indicator to others that not only am I licensed to practice as a registered nurse, but I have also met rigorous requirements in order to achieve the CNLCP® credential.
The CNLCP® Certification Board directs the certification program for nurse life care planners. This allows an RN to utilize the designation of CNLCP®; and, promotes the specialty of the nurse life care planners’ professional practice and role.
The Certified Nurse Life Care Planner (CNLCP®) Certification Board, incorporated in 2009 as a separate non-profit entity, collaborates with the American Association of Nurse Life Care Planners (AANLCP®) Executive Board.
Please note that the CNLCP® Handbook and Applications are in the process of being updated.
