Colquitt Regional Medical Center will celebrate Certified Nurses Day on March 19 by honoring its board-certified nurses. Board certification in specialty areas of nursing plays an important role in the assurance of a high quality of care for patients at CRMC.
Nursing has become increasingly complex and while a registered nurse’s (R.N.) license assures general nursing practice and knowledge of the field, a certified nurse has passed testes in their specific field of employment and/or interest. There are many nursing certification specialties such as medical-surgical, pediatric, pain management, cardiac vascular, oncology, hospice, case management, emergency nursing, critical care and many others.
Colquitt Regional has 40 board certified nurses on staff.
