CMC Celebrates Certified Nurses Day

In celebration of Certified Nurses Day, recognized annually on March 19th, CMC wants to congratulate all of our nurses that have achieved this important professional milestone, and for those still considering it, here are some excellent reasons to pursue specialty nursing certification:

Certified Nurses demonstrate greater confidence in decision making, increased patient safety, and higher patient satisfaction. Also, certified nurses have been shown to be more likely to provide care based on evidence-based guidelines.

Specialty certification sends a message of commitment to a current or potential employer. Nurses who are certified demonstrate a personal responsibility to their education, and in turn, patient care and outcomes. Studies have shown an association between specialty nursing certification and improved nurse retention, higher job satisfaction, and higher nurse performance.

Personal benefits that come with certification are many. The sense of accomplishment, feeling of empowerment, and validation of knowledge has a great impact of confidence. Other benefits can include an impact on salary and career advancement, as well as improved marketability.

We are proud of the following nurses here at CMC who have become certified. Happy Certified Nurses Day!
