NRHA's Rural Health Nurse Certification Program
Rural nursing is its own specialty, and it is that realization that has led to the development of the first ever rural nurse certification program. This multifaceted course is designed to equip rural nurses with information they need and a network of colleagues to help them provide high quality care in rural settings while recognizing and celebrating their vast skill sets.
Kick Off: May 24th at 5:00 pm EST

Created with You in Mind
Our curriculum is based on input from successful rural nurse leaders who have lived the experience from the bedside to executive leadership.
Created by and intended for those currently working in rural health nursing - this program was designed by rural nurse leaders for rural nurses.
The curriculum was developed by successful rural nurse leaders by answering this question: What do you know now that you wish you would have known then?

Just as orthopedic nurses are skilled at caring for the musculoskeletal system, and cardiac nurses specialize in caring for the heart, rural nurses are skilled at knowing a little bit about everything and balancing the needs of their patients with the often-limited resources in small and sometimes isolated parts of the country.
Take the first step to growing your network, knowledge, and skills!
