During this time of COVID-19, we have had to make some changes to the way we usually recertify our MSCNs, due to the difficulties that some of our MS Nurses may be facing. If you are due for recertification and are ready to recertify according to our guidelines at the regular time, please go ahead and do so following the usual methods. However, if you need extra time to prepare, we are granting a one-time only extension. If this applies to you, please carefully follow the extension policy outlined on the MSNICB website.


The MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS NURSES INTERNATIONAL CERTIFICATION BOARD (MSNICB) was established by the International Organization of Multiple Sclerosis Nurses (IOMSN) to develop criteria for certification and re-certification and administer the Certification Examination for Multiple Sclerosis Nurses.


EMERITUS STATUS: MS nursing professionals who currently hold the MSCN credential but who retire from active practice may apply for Emeritus Status, which will be conferred on a one-time basis and will not require renewal, as it will be valid indefinitely. Those who are granted Emeritus Status will be able to use the designation of MSCN-e but will no longer be able to use the original MSCN designation.
