Plastic Surgical Nurses
The Plastic Surgical Nurses Certification Board (PSNCB) was established in 1989 for the purpose of promoting the highest standards of plastic surgical nursing practice through the development, implementation, coordination and evaluation of all aspects of the certification process. The PSNCB believes that attainment of a common knowledge base, utilization of the nursing process, and a high level of skill in the practice setting are required for proficient practice in the specialty of plastic and reconstructive nursing.
To be eligible to apply, you must be an RN in the US or Canada, have a minimum of 2 years of plastic surgical nursing, and must have spent at least 1,000 practice hours in plastic surgical nursing. When these requirements are met, you must pass the certification exam.
There are currently 12 Certified Plastic Surgical Nurses in Missouri. Three of them work for Dr. Rottler. Once certified, we must continue our education by attending meetings and reading journal articles. Our commitment to ongoing education makes our nurses some of the best in Saint Louis.
