Manatee Memorial Hospital Celebrates Certified Nurses Day
Manatee Memorial Hospital celebrated Certified Nurses Day with a special luncheon on March 17 honoring their board certified nurses. Board Certification of nurses plays an increasingly important role in the assurance of high standards of care for patients and their loved ones. 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. Manatee Memorial Hospital encourages national board certification for all its nurses from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).
