License Verification Tool | Clinical Nurse Specialist; Wellness through Acute Care (Adult-Gerontology)
Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNSs) have a unique role in nursing practice, providing the many of the same services as a regular nurse, but also moving nursing care forward and helping to improve the healthcare system. As Clinical Nurse Specialists, their duties may include helping to manage complex patient care, developing educational programs, research, and formulating policies and protocols. In many cases, their expertise and competency ensure patient safety and positive patient outcomes. In addition, CNSs can provide holistic wellness services for their patients through acute care.Whether a CNS provides direct care or indirect services, they are expected to adhere to the highest standards of patient care and remain in compliance with professional licensure requirements. As with many healthcare professionals, CNSs also require accurate and thorough license verification for the purpose of employment and continued permission to practice. However, manual validation of these licenses can be time-consuming and lead to losses in productivity.Manual License Validation Is Time-ConsumingUndergoing the manual verification process requires human capital and can eat up a great deal of time. After receiving an application for potential employment, manual verification of a license can take up to 3 days or more. The other common option is to outsource the verification process to a third-party in order to save on time and resources. Either way, the process can be long and difficult, taking up to a month.In addition, manual license verification can be too costly for smaller healthcare facilities. For example, small clinics may not have the resources to manually validate licenses and must instead outsource to third-party companies, making the process more expensive.Reduce Administrative Duties with Automated License ValidationCertemy is a leader in automated license validation and facilitates the rapid validation of both existing and new healthcare professionals’ licenses.
