Celebrate Certified Nurses Day — March 19th
Congratulations to each of our nurses who have achieved national board certification in pain management!
"Pain Management Certification means that you possess sufficient knowledge of pain physiology, pathophysiology and how to apply the nursing process to produce effective outcomes for pain management as judged by experts from the ANCC and ASPMN®. Your knowledge encompasses the evidenced based works that pain management nursing is built upon. You are among a select group of nurses." ASPMN website

The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) proposed March 19 as Certified Nurses Day to honor the birthday of the late Margretta "Gretta" Madden Styles. An international pioneer of nursing certification and longtime friend of AACN and AACN Certification Corporation, Styles designed the first comprehensive study of nurse credentialing.
