CNA Certification Program

CNA Certification in Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing, “Committing to Excellence”

CNA Certification in Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing application:

Specialty associations with a certification exam can provide their members with a voucher code for a 20% discount off the fees to write the certification exam or renew their certification. The voucher code will be valid for initial exam writers, renewal exam writers, and renewals by continuous learning. The voucher code is not valid for nurses applying to rewrite the exam or applying for inactive status. If you are a CNA member, the 20% discount will be applied to the CNA member rate; if you are not a CNA member, then the discount will be applied to the non-member rate.

We encourage CFMHN members who are Registered Nurses and Registered Psychiatric Nurses to take this opportunity to certify and/or re-certify in our nursing specialty.

To receive a CFMHN member 20% discount code visit our website to request the code (you will be required to log in). If you have not activated your CFMHN membership login, you can request a password reset.  Once you have made the request, you will receive a confirmation email containing the code.  When you have the code, you will need to visit the CNA website and log in to your active profile (if you have one) or create a new profile to access registration.
