    I just finished one of the most grueling exams I've ever taken. Passing that exam from the Board of Certification for Emergency Nurses gives me the privilege of adding "CEN" behind my name. It basically means I am Board Certified and "professionally credible" as an Emergency Nurse. Kinda a big deal, at least in the circles I run in. I'll be adding BSN in there by June.


    Thaddeus Bartholomew RN, CEN.

    I like the looks of that. :dancing:

    Sweet! Congratulations, now get me something to eat and 4 more pillows. My highly emergent hangnail is hurting more than my stage 4 fibromyalgia.

    Not to mention the CEN exam tests for any obscure emergency in any part of the world! I was told the Army requires CEN before a nurse can work the ER or air evac. I'm proud to have been a Certified Emergency Nurse from 1990 to 2014. Disabled now. Congratulations bro! That's one tough mudder of a test.
