A Community of Exceptional Nurses
Palm Beach County Chapter of AACN, Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., is proud of our accomplishments in promoting certification. Currently, 39% of our local chapter members and board officers are CCRN-certified.
The value of certification is promoted at monthly educational dinner meetings and though our Web presence. Our members are recognized monthly and annually for achievement of certification at a CCRN /PCCN Recognition Luncheon or Dinner Gala.
We implemented a system to reward certification with scholarship merit points system for certified chapter members. We collaborated in January 2012 with St. Mary’s Medical Center on a 2-Day CCRN review course that had 35 registered participants representing 16 area hospitals.
Our goals and future plans for promoting certification include increasing certified chapter members by 10%. Our chapter will continue to promote certification in an effort to be "Together. Stronger. Bolder." in the upcoming 2011-2012 year and meet our certification goals.
