Final Thoughts from Dr. Kelley...

While creating this program for each of you, I reflected back on what it felt like to prepare for my own board certification exam in 2014. 

I was nervous, unsure of how to register, how to prepare, and uncertain of how I would fare on the exam. Waiting at the testing center for my results at the end was nerve-racking. 

I channeled that energy to create the NICER program and alleviate those concerns to the best of my ability for each of you. 

The NICER Program is in its 7th year with continued refinement with each offering and launch.

You will have videos, handouts, downloadable resources, books, study guides, and over 300 practice questions available to support your preparation. 

If you have additional questions that have not yet been answered, please reach out to me at [email protected] . 

I look forward to having the opportunity to support your professional informatics nursing growth and development through the NICER Program!
