To the Editor:
The attached letter was sent to the ANA Council on Practice Credentialling, the Senior Staff Specialist, Nursing Practice Program and Council Service of ANA and the Council on Gerontological Nursing ANA.
To Whom It May Concern:
The Gerontological Division of the Maryland Nurses' Association objects to the exclusion of the Certified Gerontological Nurses in the Registry of Nurses certified in advanced practice being published by the American Nurses' Association.
We feel this group of nurses is highly qualified in their field and their experience and skills are commensurate with the skills of those who will be included.
We request you reverse your policy to include the Certified Gerontological Nurses.
