Pardee will celebrate Certified Nurses Day, this Friday, March 19,
by honoring board certified nurses. “We are thrilled and proud to celebrate the 87 board certified nurses on Pardee’s staff,” said Pat Ashe, chief nursing officer. “It is our hope that this recognition shows appreciation to the nursing staff for the personal dedication and persistence required to achieve and maintain this level of national certification.” Board Certification of nurses plays an increasingly important role in the assurance of high standards of care for patients and their loved ones. A registered nurse (RN) license provides entry to general nursing practice. However, the knowledge-intensive requirements of modern nursing require extensive education, as well as a strong personal commitment to excellence by the nurse.
Pardee Hospital encourages national board certification for nurses. There are many nursing certification specialties such as medical-surgical, pediatric, perioperative, gerontology, oncology, research, obstetrics, case management, emergency nursing, critical care and many others. Please join Pardee Hospital and the nation’s national nursing certification organizations in honoring those hardworking, dedicated nurses for their professionalism, and a job well done!
