Florida Hospital Waterman celebrates Certified Nurses’ Day

TAVARES, Fla. (March 17, 2014) - Florida Hospital Waterman is celebrating Certified Nurses’ Day, March 19, by honoring its 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,” said Patricia Dolan, Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer, Florida Hospital Waterman. “Nursing, like health care in general, has become increasingly complex. 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 the nurse.”
  Florida Hospital Waterman encourages national board certification for all its nurses. “Patients are encouraged to inquire whether there are certified nurses on staff when they visit a hospital or their primary care provider, said Cheryl Thaler, Director of Medical/ Surgical and Special Care Services, Florida Hospital Waterman. “There are many nursing certification specialties such as medical-surgical, pediatric, pain management, cardiac vascular, oncology, case management, emergency, critical care and many others.” Many nursing certification bodies exist to serve the full range of specialized nursing care offered in the contemporary health care system. The following nurses are being recognized for their professionalism, leadership, and commitment to excellence in patient care.
