Board Certification of nurses plays an increasingly important role in the assurance of high standards of care for patients and their loved ones.  Nursing, like health care in general, has become increasingly complex.  While a Registered Nurse (RN) 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.

Central Florida Regional Hospital encourages national board certification for all its nurses.    There are many nursing certification specialties such as medical-surgical, pain management, cardiac vascular, oncology, orthopedics, 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 (ABSNC) or the National Organization for Competence Assurance (NOCA), or both.

Please join Central Florida Regional Hospital and the nation’s national nursing certification organizations in honoring those hardworking, dedicated nurses for their professionalism and a job well done!
