Standards: Examinations are important mechanisms for evaluation of student learning. Cheating on examinations is contrary to both academic integrity standards and to ethical standards. Guidelines for the CPUI Exam require that no outside materials or written or verbal communication be used during the exam.
PICC Excellence™ receives automatic official confirmation of the successful completion of the exam and then issues a formal CPUI™ Certificate. The PICC Certification™ and CPUI™ designation certificates are mailed directly to the candidate. PICC Certification™ and use of CPUI™ credentials is effective for two years from the date of issue and must be renewed every two years.
Renewal of the CPUI credential requires proof of current licensure as a registered nurse, documentation of a minimum of 24 successful PICC insertions within the past 24 months and completion of at least 6 continuing education reviews of either programs or articles of PICC related continuing education. The cost to re-certify is $65. CPUIs who fail to submit verification of the required insertions AND continuing education summary forms by the deadline (expiration of current CPUI™ Certification) are required to start the CPUI™ Certification process from the beginning as a new applicant.
