Specialty certification of nurses plays an increasingly important role in the assurance of high standards of care for patients and their loved ones. Nursing, like healthcare in general, has become increasingly complex. While a registered nurse (RN) license provides entry to nursing practice, the knowledge-intensive requirements of evidence-based care require extensive continuing education, as well as strong personal commitment to excellence by the nurse.

“There are many nursing certification specialties such as medical-surgical, pediatric, cardiac, emergency nursing, and many others,” said Sandy Dennis, Senior Director of Nursing Operations. “These specialties are regulated by their own governance board and are accredited by their Specialty Organization”.

“Nursing staff at KSB take pride in their work and set high standards for patient care,” said Linda Clemen, Chief Nursing Officer at KSB. “Having fifteen of our nursing staff get certified in their specialty shows that dedication to excellence and expertise in their specialty. I’m proud of our staff and their commitment to patient care.”

Please join KSB Hospital and the nations national nursing certification organizations in honoring those hardworking, dedicated nurses for their professionalism and a job well done!
