In a senior living facility, the bathroom is arguably the most important space to providers and their residents. Studies show that most incidents and falls occur in the bathroom. The independence, hygiene, dignity, and safety that occurs in the bathroom is all pivotal. That is why it’s so important to create an environment that supports aging over time and promotes independence for seniors.

Certified Nurses Day!

Certified Nurses Day™, held annually on March 19, honors nurses worldwide who contribute to better patient outcomes through national board certification in their specialty. A registered nurse (RN) license allows nurses to practice. Certification affirms advanced knowledge, skill, and practice to meet the challenges of modern nursing.

The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) offers certification in gerontological nursing – the gold standard in demonstrating clinical excellence in geriatric patient care.  Less than one percent of RNs have this credentialing, so credentialed RNs help providers stand out in a highly competitive marketplace.

AHCA/NCAL encourages Members to recognize their credentialed RNs on March 19.  If your RNs are not yet credentialed, take an important step on your quality journey by watching this video or going to the AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep  web site to learn more about this terrific course. Use promo code RNBCDAY (all caps) to receive $100 off each new registration between now and 3/31/17.

If your RNs are already certified, please encourage them to plan for recertification by going to the recertification flyer for some tips on how to maintain their credentials.
