NATIONAL CERTIFIED NURSES DAY
National Certified Nurses Day is observed every March 19th. Every day lives are effected 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.
