Artesian Valley Health System is pleased to announce Melvin Viney, APRN, has successfully obtained the American Academy of Nurse Practitioner’s Emergency Nurse Practitioner Certification (ENP-C).
“I’m ecstatic to receive this certification. There are about 250,000 nurse practitioners nationally and of those, less than 250 have obtained the Emergency Nurse Practitioner Certification” stated Melvin.
The Emergency Nurse Practitioner Certification (ENP-C) was developed by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Board “for eligible nurse practitioners that recognize their expertise in emergency care.”
Passing the exam was the final step for Melvin to obtain the certification. He spent months preparing to take the exam as well as working to meet the stringent eligibility requirements specified by the American Academy of Emergency Nurse Practitioners that included “a minimum of 2,000 direct, emergency care practice hours in the past five (5) years as a family nurse practitioner (FNP) and evidence of 100 hours of continuing emergency care education with a minimum of 30 of those hours in emergency care procedural skills within those 5 years.”
Receiving the Emergency Nurse Practitioner Certification (ENP-C) also makes Melvin a rare dual certified nurse practitioner as he added to his existing board-certified family nurse practitioner (FNP-BC) credentials. Melvin also recently completed the Pediatric Critical Care Support Course. His pursuits easily reveal his passion for family and emergency care.
The next time you see Melvin at the hospital, clinic or just around town, make sure to tell him “Congratulations!”
