-According to Hanna Rion "the greatest gift of the Garden is the restoration of the five senses".
I believed that obtaining my CRRN helped me cultivates my own soil and eventually enhances my awareness to grow. It's been giving me the confidence and sense of pride to promote REHABILITATION NURSING, not only as a specialty but as a force of nature. The respect I gained from my co-workers and patient's only strengthen my roots. Promotion and awards from work only validates and recognizes my continuing desire to excel furthermore.
Why is Certification important for the rehabilitation nurse?
attaining the Certified rehabilitation registered nurse (Crrn®) certification validates your professional standing as an experienced rehabilitation nurse with a documented level of knowledge in this specialized area of practice. it sets you apart professionally from your colleagues who are not certified, indicating your commitment to life- long learning in your field of specialty. as a Crrn, you demonstrate your personal investment in your rehabilitation nursing practice and gain both personal and professional rewards.
employers value the competitive edge and assurance of quality that certified nurses bring to their institutions. in fact, a landmark research study* found that facilities with more Crrns on staff had a lower average length of stay for their patients.
Certification can also boost patients’ confidence in their caregivers and offer reassurance at a time when patients need it most. Certification signals to patients that the nurse is not just a caregiver, but a qualified caregiver.
Rehabilitation Nurses help patients with long-term physical disabilities, or chronic illnesses, deal with their limitations and reach their full potential. These nurses work with patients, and their family members, to create a recovery plan and set short and long-term goals—ultimately helping the patient achieve as independent a lifestyle as possible. As a Rehabilitation Nurse, you’ll have the opportunity to form lasting relationships with your patients.
