The NVRN certification examination is the only certification for registered nurses that focuses exclusively on acute neurovascular care. Attainment of the NVRN-BC status demonstrates nursing expertise in the provision of acute neurovascular care to highly vulnerable, hospitalized, acute stroke patients. The NVRN certification was the first stroke certification recognized by Magnet and has been continuously available since 2011. Review courses supporting attainment of the NVRN-BC credential are available throughout the year. Exams can be taken year-round at Prometric Testing Centers.

If the Review Course is offered virtually, the computerized exam can be taken at various authorized testing centers across the country (at a day and time of your choice), or at another in-person NVRN event of your choice. You have up to 1 year to attempt the computerized version of the exam
If you do not have 1000 hours, but believe you have accumulated enough expertise to be successful on the examination, you may obtain your supervisor's signature indicating that he/she agrees that you have the requisite knowledge to sit for the certification examination.
In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by Arizona State University and ANVC. Arizona State University is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
