Mar 21, '02Since I just graduated last May and started working in June, my focus for these past 9 months has been finding my comfort level as a nurse and gaining confidence in my skills and knowledge. I do, however, plan to become certified, in orthopedic nursing.
Mar 22, '02Throughout my nursing career I have held the following certifications:
RN,C - Certified Med-Surg Nurse
OCN - Oncology Certified Nurse
ACRN - AIDS Certified Registered Nurse
All of the above have lapsed and I now hold:
CCRC - Certified Clinical Research Coordinator
CCRA - Certified Clinical Research Associate
Mar 27, '02I am CCRN for about 14 years - enjoy staying current with nursing trends, new treatments and ever-advancing technology... have always read many journals, perpetual student, ICU preceptor, teach some critical care classes...
....But, do prefer bedside nursing!
Mar 28, '02I've had my CCRN since 1989. I work in long-term care now, and most people here have no idea what CCRN means. I would like to get my geriatric certification, but since ANCC doesn't recognize my bachelor's or master's degrees because they're not in nursing, I'm not going to do it.
