Currently, there are 37 CCRNs or PCCNs at HPRHS. Twenty-three of these nurses obtained their certification between 2002 and 2005.
In September 2005, our chapter donated four certification plaques to critical care units at HPRHS. We invited nursing administration, chapter members and certified nurses to our ceremony.
This past year certification was added to nursing's strategic plan at HPRHS; certification initials were added to name badges; and each critical care director has added increasing the number of certified nurses to their unit goals.
