WELCOME THE FIRST CLASS OF CNS FELLOWS DURING 2019 NACNS ANNUAL CONFERENCE IN ORLANDO

Join your friends and colleagues for a celebration of the inaugural class of CNS Fellows, to be held at the NACNS Annual Conference in Orlando, FL on March 6 – 9, 2019.  More than 50 CNSs from around the country applied to be considered for this honor.  These applicants will undergo a critical review by the CNS Institute Trustees and some be selected for induction at the Annual Conference.

Be part of history!  Plan now to come to Orlando and cheer on the first class of CNS fellows.  The event that welcomes the CNS Fellows will be a special ticketed event.  These individuals, upon their induction at this event, will be eligible to use a new credential – the FCNS following their name, degree and licensure.  Please plan to join this important celebration!

Also, begin now to plan to apply to the 2020 class of CNS Fellows.  The Fellowship has been established to showcase CNSs who have made outstanding contributions to the CNS role, been devoted mentors to future generations of CNS leaders and directly influenced the CNS role in their communities.

Application requirements include:

♦  A letter of endorsement by one colleague, preferably a supervisor, who can verify contributions to CNS practice and leadership.

♦  Being a current NACNS member and having maintained membership for the past two years.

♦  Having worked as a CNS for at least five years.

♦  Being credentialed as a CNS or educated as a CNS, plus having significant past contributions as a CNS.

Application for the next class of the CNS Fellowship is expected to be open June 1 to October 1, 2019.
