Certification Partnership with HIV/AIDS Nursing Certification Board

NOVA is proud to announce a new certification partnership with the HIV/AIDS Nursing Certification Board (HANCB) to provide NOVA members with a 10% discount off the cost of their certification examination and re-certification fees! This discount applies to both HANCB certifications for NOVA members:

  • Advanced AIDS Certified Registered Nurse (AACRN)
  • AIDS Certified Registered Nurse (ACRN)

HANCB is a non-profit, professional organization whose goals are:

  • To improve the quality of HIV/AIDS nursing care and prevention;
  • To promote competency of nurses caring for persons with HIV/AIDS; and
  • To recognize this professional achievement through a certification and re-certification process.

Utilization of standards of care is essential in maintaining an adequate knowledge base in an evolving field such as HIV/AIDS nursing. Nursing practice is multifocused and occurs in an array of settings including primary care, acute care institutions communities and schools.
