NCC in collaboration with other nationally accredited certification organizations is pleased to announce the launch of the public service campaign, “Certified Nurses Make a Difference.” This PSA highlights the continuum of care provided by certified nurses within various healthcare specialties and helps patients and families understand that certified nurses will provide information, support, and guidance for those they care for as they navigate the healthcare system through every stage of their life.
Nurses have long been recognized as the most trusted health care providers, and in the last two years, the public has been especially aware of their courage, commitment, knowledge, resilience, and advocacy during a time of adversity and fear.
Certification is a choice! Certified nurses have chosen to go beyond licensure to validate their specialty knowledge through national third-party examinations. They have specialized skills and advanced knowledge, including the latest developments in patient care.
NCC supports the commitment and expertise of certified healthcare professionals and has engaged in several public awareness campaigns to bring much-deserved recognition to professional certification. (YouTube.com/user/NCCcertifies)
