Certified Nurses Day – March 19th

Clinical Expertise

Mar 19, 2021

Brooks Rehabilitation celebrates Certified Nurses Day on March 19 by honoring all of the board-certified nurses on staff.

Specialty certification of nurses plays an increasingly important role in maintaining high standards of care for patients and families. Nursing has become increasingly complex. While a registered nurse (RN) license provides entry to general nursing practice, the knowledge-intensive requirements of specialty nursing requires extensive education, and a strong personal commitment to excellence by the nurse.

Brooks Rehabilitation encourages certification for all its nurses. Many nursing certifications exist, such as Rehabilitation (CRRN), Wound Care (WCC), Heart Failure, medical-surgical and case management.

Please join our Nursing Leadership Teams and the nation’s national nursing certification organizations in honoring these hardworking, dedicated nurses for their professionalism and a job well done!

The following nurses are being recognized for their professionalism, leadership, and commitment to excellence in patient care:
