MS NURSES CERTIFICATION EXAM OFFERED AT MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS CONFERENCE IN DALLAS

The Multiple Sclerosis Nurses Certification Exam (MSCN) will be given on the opening day of the 2014 Cooperative Meeting of CMSC (Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers) & ACTRIMS® (American Committees for the Treatment and Research of Multiple Sclerosis), www.cmsc-actrims.org

Taking place on May 28th at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, TX, nurses from all over the world will have the opportunity to take this 2-hour examination and be recognized for knowledge in providing care to MS patients. This voluntary certification is developed by the Multiple Sclerosis Nursing International Credentialing Board in collaboration with Professional Testing Company of New York City. It is endorsed by the International Organization of Multiple Sclerosis Nurses (IOMSN) the first and only worldwide organization focused solely on the needs and goals of professional nurses.

"Multiple sclerosis is a dynamic chronic illness and to provide high quality care requires a unique level of knowledge. This certification program helps people with MS and their families know that they are receiving optimal care from their nurse," said June Halper, Executive Director of IOMSN & Chief Executive Officer of CMSC.
Since 2002, more than 1200 nurses from around the world have received the MS International Nurses Certification. It is recommended that a nurse have at least two years experience in multiple sclerosis nursing before sitting for the examination.

The examination covers the basic concepts of MS including disease course classification, neuroanatomy, pathophysiology of MS, current diagnostic processes and tools for assessment. Nurses will be questioned about their knowledge of pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic treatment, symptom management and psychosocial issues and interventions. Research, patient and family education as well as patient advocacy issues are included in this comprehensive examination.
Participants must register online by April 15th to take the MS Certification Exam on May 28th at the CMSC Annual Meeting in Dallas, TX. For more information including exam fees, and a practice test go to http://www.ptcny.com or http://www.msnicb.org.

The 2014 Cooperative Meeting of CMSC & ACTRIMS® is the only event in North America that provides health care professionals, from a wide range of disciplines, with the latest information, treatment advancements, and research in multiple sclerosis.

Conference delegates will learn about cutting edge research findings, the latest clinical advances in the effective comprehensive management of the disease and emerging care issues that will enhance their knowledge and skills.
