Suburban Hospital Recognizes Certified Nurses With Wall Exhibit


Published:

Suburban Hospital (8600 Old Georgetown Rd.) is paying tribute to its certified nurses with a new wall exhibit that includes photos of all 156 members of its growing nursing core. Since 2009, the number of certified nurses has grown every year, chief nursing officer Barbara Jacobs said. Many of the nurses at Suburban get certified while on the job with tuition assistance from the hospital. Certifications typically require periodic review, sometimes via continuing education units (CEUs). "Certification enables nurses to demonstrate their specialty expertise and validate their knowledge to employers and, most importantly, to patients," Jacobs said in a statement. "Nurses worldwide contribute to better patient outcomes through national certification in their specialty." Photo via Suburban Hospital
