“National Certified Nurses Day is observed every March 19th.   Everyday lives are affected because of the care of certified nurses.  Certified nurses dedicate their entire careers to helping others and often work long hard hours. National Certified Nurses Day honors and recognizes them and their significant achievements. Their advanced skills require continuing education, re-certification, and continued knowledge of every changing technology. Certified nurses balance clinical needs and patient care. Helping patients meet their healthcare goals in complex and challenging times makes a Certified Nurse’s commitment even more valuable” (National Day Calendar, 2019).


In honor of National Certified Nurses Day, I wanted to take the time to honor our amazing team of Certified Nurses at Great River Care Center. As their supervisor, I have such great appreciation for their dedication to provide quality care to our residents. Their hard work NEVER goes unrecognized and I am very trusting in all of their abilities.  So again, THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO!
