On March 19, we celebrate Certified Nurses Day! At Mercyhealth, we encourage national board certification for all nurses. That means, hundreds of our nurses have achieved national board certification, assuring high standards of care for you, our patients, each and every day. National board certification plays an increasingly important role in the assurance of high standards of care for patients. Nursing, like health care in general, has become increasingly complex. While a registered nurse (RN) license 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.
Thank you to the hundreds of nurses across Mercyhealth who raise the bar on patient care excellence by achieving national nursing certification. Thank you for serving with a passion for making lives better.
