The purpose of the Coalition for Nursing Certification Research (CNCR) is to:

Advance safety and improve the process and quality of care. The purpose of research in this area is to investigate and demonstrate the link or relationship between certification and processes of care, quality of care, and safety. Studies should focus on collecting data to explore and delineate outcomes and impacts of certified practice compared to non-certified practice on: 

  • better outcomes or processes of care; 
  • patient satisfaction and or,
  • performance outcomes.
