ABPANC Coaches

The ABPANC Certification Coach is interested in assisting CPAN® and CAPA® examination candidates, at the grassroots level, to prepare for the certification examination. Volunteers for this position are able to speak passionately about the value of CPAN and CAPA certification and are willing to assist and encourage not-yet-certified colleagues in becoming certified.

The coach may organize study groups and serve as a resource to perianesthesia nurses seeking certification. Through the study group the coach recruits, supports and promotes CPAN and CAPA certification in the institution in which they are employed, or at a district, state and/or regional level.
