160 Certified Nurses Celebrate certification with
Methodist Mansfield Medical Center celebrated Certified Nurses Day, March 19, by honoring 160 board-certified nurses with ice cream. The nurses were recognized for their professionalism, leadership and commitment to excellence in patient care.
Board certification of nurses plays an increasingly important role in the assurance of high standards of care for patients and their loved ones. While a registered nurse provides entry to general nursing practice, the knowledge-intensive requirements of modern nursing require extensive education, as well as a strong personal commitment to excellence by the nurse.
Methodist Mansfield encourages national board certification for all its nurses and assists with tuition. Nursing certification specialties include medical-surgical, pediatric, pain management, cardiac vascular, oncology, hospice, case management, emergency nursing, critical care and many others.
Please join Methodist Mansfield and the nation’s national nursing certification organizations in honoring these hardworking, dedicated nurses for their professionalism, and a job well done.
