Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Rockwall celebrates Nurses’ Day

Rockwall hospital has 44 Certified Nurses on staff

(ROCKWALL, TX – March 21, 2017) Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Rockwall took time out on Monday to celebrate Certified Nurses’ Day showing recognition and appreciation to the more than 40 certified nurses who work at the hospital.

“I am so proud to be part of a team of nursing professionals that are nationally recognized for competence in their specialty,” said Tami Hawkins, NEA-BC, Chief Nursing Officer and Vice President of Patient Care Services. “I am even more proud of their commitment to our patients because nursing specialty certification makes a difference for each and every one they touch.”

Certified nurses exemplify a personal commitment to their profession by advancing their knowledge to become board certified in the specialty of their choice.  Nursing certification can be achieved in a variety of departments from pediatrics, surgical care, perioperative, obstetrics, bariatrics, emergency, critical care and others.  Through the certification process nurses take additional specialized classes followed by an examination process.

Texas Health Rockwall encourages and supports nurses who pursue certification and wants to thank them all for their professionalism, leadership and commitment to excellence in patient care.
