CRANAplus RAN certification establishes that a nurse is qualified to deliver health care in a remote, isolated setting
Our Remote Area Nurse or RAN Certification process has established a minimum standard for professional practice. The certification process aspires to improve remote healthcare, provide professional recognition of the specialty of remote area nursing and help to quantify a large amount of educational preparation.
CRANAplus members are provided with the certification process for free as part of their membership. Non-Members will need to purchase the certification process.
