The Reentry Program consists of three sequential steps, all of which must be completed within a
consecutive 24-month period, starting with the date of enrollment in the Reentry Program. The following
is a summary of the three steps. BOTH Step One and Step Two must be completed within 12 consecutive
months after Reentry Program enrollment. Step Three must be completed within 24 consecutive months
after Reentry Program enrollment.
- Step One: Complete 60 Class A credits, 40 Class B credits, 4 Core
Modules (one in each of the four content areas), provide evidence
of valid BLS and ACLS certifications, and pass the NBCRNA Reentry
Examination in order to move to Step Two of the program.
The Reentry Examination content is consistent with the content of
the CPC Assessment. For reference, the CPC Assessment content
outline is available here.
- Step Two: Complete a list of NBCRNA-identified activities at an
NBCRNA-recognized simulation center in order to move to Step Three
of the program.
- Step Three: Provide evidence of nurse anesthesia employment
within the 12 consecutive months following completion of Step Two
of the program or by the end of the 24-month Reentry Program,
whichever is shorter.
