No Pass, No Pay for Recertification Fees

Support nurses to stay certified

Based on the executive order issued 3/23/2020 by the Governor of Maryland, PNCB’s physical office is closed. Staff are working remotely to continue to serve candidates, certificants, and employers. Please use email addresses listed here to contact us, and thank you for understanding that there may be some delay in our response. All online systems including certificant portals and the CE / Pediatric Updates marketplace are still available 24/7. Please check back frequently for updates here.

No Pass, No Pay for Recertification Fees

Employers who support recertification costs through reimbursement, education funds, or other means are encouraged to use our No Pass, No Pay process to pay for their nurses' PNCB Recert fees. 

This program can be used for one or more of our certifications:

  • Certified Pediatric Nurse (CPN)
  • Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (CPNP-PC, CPNP-AC, CPNP-AC/PC)
  • Pediatric Primary Care Mental Health Specialist (PMHS)

You can even pay for CPNP Pediatric Updates CE modules through this process. Employers are invoiced monthly for those who recertify.

Employers are not required to use No Pass, No Pay for CPN testing to participate in offering the Recert code benefit.
