Celebrate Certified Nurses at Mission Health – March 19, 2020

Did you know Thursday, March 19 is National Certified Nurses Day? Help us celebrate nearly 800 RNs across Mission Health who have taken their nursing practice to the next level by achieving certification.

What is the value of Certification?

Certification in any field is a “mark of professionalism.” Particularly in nursing, certification indicates a level of excellence that attests to the highest standards of practice and leadership.

Essentially, nursing board certification enables our patients to more readily identify competence and quality; it validates advanced knowledge and competence in a specialty. The American Board of Nursing Specialties defines certification as “the formal recognition of the specialized knowledge, skills and experience demonstrated by the achievement of standards identified by a nursing specialty to promote optimal health outcomes.”

Today, more than ever, nurses operate in environments that demand accountability and validation of learning. Education qualifications and licensure provide basic requirements for nurses and attest to discipline-specific knowledge and practice legitimacy. Experience adds knowledge and skill in a particular role or activity through training, observation of practice and personal participation.
