MSCN Recertification Guidelines

ADVISORY: RECERTIFICATION POLICY DURING COVID-19

During this time of COVID-19, we have had to make some changes to the way we usually recertify our MSCNs, due to the difficulties that some of our MS Nurses may be facing. If you are due for recertification and are ready to recertify according to our guidelines at the regular time, please go ahead and do so following the usual methods. However, if you need extra time to prepare, we are granting a one-time only extension. If this applies to you, please carefully follow the extension policy outlined below.

Certificants whose certificates expire on 06/30/2021
• Certificants whose certificates expire on 06/30/2021 and who would like to recertify at that time, are free to do so using the standard recertification process, requirements, deadlines, fees.
• Certificants who have successfully recertified by 06/30/2021 will maintain their 6/30/2026 recertification cycle going forward.
• Certificants who have not successfully recertified by 06/30/2021 will be granted the one-time (1) year extension. The application deadline is April 1, 2022. The updated expiration date for these certificants will be 6/30/2022 and their new recertification cycle will expire on 6/30/2026 going forward.
• The website and directory will be updated accordingly.

Certificants whose certificates expire on 12/31/2021
• Certificants whose certificates expire on 12/31/2021 and who would like to recertify at that time, are free to do so using the standard recertification process, requirements, deadlines, fees.
• Certificants who have successfully recertified before 12/31/2021 will maintain their 12/31/2026 recertification cycle going forward.
• Certificants who have not successfully recertified before 12/31/2021 will be granted the one-time (6) month extension. The application deadline is April 1, 2022. The updated expiration date for these certificants will be 6/30/2022 and their new recertification cycle will expire on 6/30/2026 going forward.
