Recertification Changes

The Dermatology Nurse Practitioner Certification Board announces changes to the Re-Certification requirements as of April 1, 2020.

The DCNP credential will continue to remain valid for three (3) years and expire on December 31 as usual, however, the application deadline for re-certification is now October 31.

This means that if your DCNP expires on December 31 of the current year, you must have your re-certification application and documentation submitted by October 31. Reminder emails will continue to be sent in June in the year that you will qualify to re-certify.

In addition, we have revised the requirements to re-certify by the continuing education option. The revisions can be found here on our website, by clicking on the recertification information tab for the application.
