Developmental Disability Nurse
Transcript of Developmental Disability Nurse
By: Owen Schnedler
Also known as a Special Needs Nurse, Developmental Disability Nurses help patients with mental or developmental disabilities.
ADHD - Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
The annual salary of a developmental disabilities nurse that has earned an RN degree and certification can earn between $50,000-$60,000
The annual salary of a developmental disabilities nurse that has earned an LPN can generally earn between $34,000-$44,000.
To become a certified developmental disabilities nurse, one must first earn a degree as a registered nurse from an accredited university and complete a minimum of two year of full time employment in a developmental disabilities nursing setting, either as a practicing nurse, a nurse administrator or educator or a nurse consultant. These two prerequisites deem a nurse eligible to sit for the voluntary certification exam which is accredited by the Developmental Disabilities Nurses Association (DDNA). After successfully passing this examination, a nurse earns a Certification in Developmental Disabilities Nursing (CDDN). Certification is not required to work as a developmental disabilities nurse and because of this a student can participate in an LPN training program rather than earning a college degree. While becoming an LPN requires less of a financial and time commitment, the potential employment opportunities and salaries will be markedly more limited.
