President's Message

 

Jamie D'Ausilio, CRRN

As of January 2018, you no longer are required to detail each professional development activity on your renewal application. All that is required is a statement of attestation that you've completed your points of credit and have met the renewal requirements!

We hope this simplifies the renewal process, and encourage you to submit your renewal application without hesitation and on time!
