Celebrate Certified Nurses on March 19

Dave Kyllo

Certified Nurses Day™, held annually on March 19, honors nurses worldwide who contribute to better patient outcomes through national board certification in their specialty. A registered nurse (RN) license allows nurses to practice. Certification affirms advanced knowledge, skill, and practice to meet the challenges of modern nursing.

The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) offers certification in gerontological nursing – the gold standard in demonstrating clinical excellence in geriatric patient care. Less than one percent of RNs have this credentialing, so credentialed RNs help providers stand out in a highly competitive marketplace.

To help RNs prepare for the certification exam, AHCA/NCAL offers a course called Gero Nurse Prep. RNs who complete the course earn 30 CEUs and experience a 96% pass rate on the ANCC certification exam. Watch this video or go to the AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep web site to learn more about this terrific course.

AHCA/NCAL encourages Members to recognize their credentialed RNs on March 19. If your RNs are not yet credentialed, take this important step on your quality journey and check out AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep today.
