Halifax Regional Medical Center will honor its 44 board-certified nurses Monday with a high tea event and presentations and awards.

The event is a celebration of Certified Nurses Day and a way to honor those on staff in various departments across the medical center.
Board Certification of nurses plays an increasingly important role in the assurance of high standards of care for patients and their loved ones, HRMC said in a statement. “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.”
HRMC encourages national board certification for all of its nurses. Patients are encouraged to inquire whether there are certified nurses on staff when they visit a hospital or their primary care provider.
There are many nursing certification specialties such as medical-surgical, pediatric, pain management, cardiac vascular, oncology, hospice, case management, emergency nursing, 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; national nurse-certifying bodies should be accredited by either the Accreditation Board for Specialty Nursing Certification or the National Organization for Competency Assurance or both.
