                                                 Description
This series includes positions that require a professional knowledge of nursing. Positions involve
providing care to patients in hospitals, clinics, occupational health units, homes, schools and
communities; administering anesthetic agents and supportive treatments to patients undergoing
surgery or other medical procedures; promoting better health practices; teaching; performing research
in one or more phases of the field of nursing; or consulting and advising nurses who provide direct
care to patients. A Registered Nurse is specifically prepared in the scientific basis of nursing; is a
graduate of an accredited school of nursing; and possesses a license to practice as an RN in a State,
Commonwealth, territory, or jurisdiction.

                                              Description

expected to be competent in most all areas of nursing practice in order to develop greater expertise in

in nursing, training, employee development, and executive development. This employee is
encouraged to participate in Army Competitive Training Courses, graduate study, speaking and writing
activities, temporary duty assignments, rotation through developmental assignments, crossing
functional lines while dealing with managerial operations (e.g., program planning, evaluation,
manpower, budget, etc.), and participation in professional group activities.

The Neonatal Resuscitation Program™ is an educational program that introduces the concepts and
basic skills of neonatal resuscitation. Completion of the program does not imply that an individual has
the competence to perform neonatal resuscitation. Each hospital is responsible for determining the
level of competence and qualifications required for someone to assume clinical responsibility for
neonatal resuscitation. This course has been designed to teach an evidence-based approach to
resuscitation of the newborn. The causes, prevention, and management of mild to severe neonatal
asphyxia are carefully explained so that health professionals may develop optimal knowledge and skill
in resuscitation. Required if working in specialty area. Provided locally or through commercial vendors.


RN Licensure - A registered nurse (RN) is a nurse who has graduated from a nursing program at a
university or college and has passed a national licensing exam. Whatever specialization they select,
nurses still need to pass a licensure exam to practice their profession. There are two licensure
examinations in the United States developed by NCSBN (National Council of State Boards Nursing
Inc.) – these are NCLEX-PN (National Council Licensure Examination – Practical Nurses) and NCLEX-
RN (National Council Licensure Examination – Registered Nurses) – to test the abilities, skills, and
knowledge of candidates for an effective and safe nursing practice. When the students pass, they will
acquire a license as LPN/LVN (Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurses) or RN (Registered Nurses).
Current Office of Personnel Management Qualification Standards do not include the requirement for
NCLEX-RN, thus the civilian RN is exempt from this requirement. This license is highly desireable for
Army civilian RNs.

Specialty Certification - ANCC is the world's largest and most prestigious nurse credentialing
organization, and a subsidiary of the American Nurses Association (ANA). The Army supports a
number of nursing specialties including: Occupational Health Nurse, Pediatric Nurse, Community
Health Nurse, Operating Room Nurse, Psychiatric Nurse, Nurse Anesthetist, Nurse
(Hematology/Oncology, Nurse Practiotioner (Adult, Family, Pediatrics, OB/GYN), Nurse (Critical Care-

Infection Control Nurse, Clinical Case Manager, Research Nurse/Nurse Educator/Nurse Consultant,

American Board of Nursing Certification. ABNS is a not-for-profit, membership organization governed
by an elected group of representatives. They are focused on improving patient outcomes and
consumer protection by promoting specialty nursing certification. The Accreditation Board for Specialty
Nursing Certification (ABSNC), formerly the ABNS Accreditation Council, is the only accrediting body
specifically for nursing certification. ABSNC accreditation is a peer-review mechanism that allows
nursing certification organizations to obtain accreditation by demonstrating compliance with the highest
quality standards available in the industry.


Certified Occupational Health Nurse. The American Board for Occupational Health Nurses administers
this certification, which is a voluntary mechanism for validating professional knowledge and expertise in
a specialty. In contrast to licensure, which assures the public of safe practice at a beginning level,
certification reflects specialty practice and knowledge at a proficient level. By meeting the challenge of
certification, the certified individual has made a commitment to a specialty and to continued
professional growth and development. Certification is recognized by employers and peers as an
achievement and leads to employment opportunities, advancement, and professional prestige. ABOHN
uses the definition of occupational and environmental health nursing and the standards of practice, in
addition to other criteria, to determine eligibility for certification. The American Association of
Occupational Health Nurses, Inc. (AAOHN) establishes the definition and standards of specialty
practice.
