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.
