Today, we celebrate Certified Nurses Day™, a day of recognition for and by healthcare leaders dedicated to nursing professionalism, excellence, recognition, and service. This day is meant to honor nurses worldwide who contribute to better patient outcomes through national board certification in their specialty.
Pictured above alongside two of his nursing students is Associate Professor of Nursing from Salisbury University, Dr. Jeffrey Willey, PhD, RN, CNS, CLNC, CNE. During his career, he has demonstrated his excellence in multiple areas by obtaining certifications as a Clinical Nurse Specialist, Certified Legal Nurse Consultant, and Certified Nurse Educator.
Nurses and nurse educators who obtain professional certification help to elevate the field of nursing and nursing education. They work towards and prove their advanced knowledge, skill, and practice to meet the challenge of modern nursing.
Join us by celebrating the certified nurses in your life today!
