CCHP-RN Certification


CCHP-RN certification makes a difference—to the patients whose care is provided by certified correctional nurses, to employers who desire top-notch nurses on staff and to the nurses who attain the credential.

This specialty certification for registered nurses recognizes CCHPs who have demonstrated the knowledge necessary to deliver specialized nursing care in corrections.

Current CCHPs may apply for registered nurse certification at any time, assuming they meet all eligibility requirements. CCHP-RN certification requires the completion of an application and a passing score on a two-hour, proctored, multiple-choice examination. The examination is administered several times throughout the year.
