Hospital Administrators—Why Should You Support SCRN?
Certification testifies to the outstanding caliber of your nurses, promotes your commitment to stroke nursing, and makes your institution more attractive to prospective nursing employees. In addition, certification is an indicator of quality that will attract patients and distinguish your hospital.
For more information about certification and its benefits, download the American Board of Nursing Specialties (ABNS) Certification Bibliography from the ABNS website. This bibliography, updated yearly, provides a list of published sources that focus on nursing certification.
Ways to Support SCRN Certification
As a hospital administrator you can
- challenge and inspire nursing staff to sit for the SCRN examination
- provide financial and career development incentives to nurses who demonstrate commitment to their patients and profession via certification
- promote current SCRNs through public recognition of their achievement and support of their continuing education.
The value of certification extends beyond the individual nurse and will benefit the employer in significant ways. Encouraging your nurses to earn the SCRN certification creates a valuable competitive edge for your institution.
