Celebrating Certified Nurses Day

Rush Oak Park Hospital celebrated Certified Nurses Day on Monday, March 19.

Oak Park, IL (March 20, 2012) — Rush Oak Park Hospital celebrated Certified Nurses Day on Monday, March 19. Certification plays an increasingly important role in the assurance of high standards of care for patients and their loved ones.

While a registered nurse 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 nurses. Many specialty certifications exist, including medical-surgical, pain management, cardiac vascular, oncology, case management, and more. Rush Oak Park Hospital encourages certification for all of its nurses, and is proud to honor those who have achieved certification for their professionalism, leadership and commitment to excellence in patient care:
