On Wednesday, April 6th, we recognized the contributions of our expert certified nurses and applaud them for the dedication and persistence demonstrated in achieving and maintaining their certifications. Many nurses "Walked The Red Carpet!" to get chair massages provided by Beyond Spa, spoke with School of Nursing Program representatives, listened to a violinist, had their photos taken in the photo booth, and interacted with fellow certified nurses within the hospital.
Here are some photos from the event:
As a Magnet organization, Hackensack University Medical Center places a high value on specialty certifications in nursing through professional organizations like the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). We believe that a specialty certification in nursing is value added to our agenda of exceptional quality patient care. Certification identifies our nurses as dedicated to their professional development and continuous learning. It symbolizes that they perform at expert levels of practice, and possess top tiered knowledge and skills beneficial to the existing high standards of patient care at HackensackUMC and the health care environment.
Dr. Ihor Sawczuk, president; Dianne Aroh, chief clinical & Patient care Officer; and the chairs of the Clinical Ladders Council, Ann Calvo, RN and Denyse Addison, nurse manager, would like to thank you for honoring our certified hardworking, dedicated nurses for their professionalism, commitment and a job well done!
