NCC Celebrates Certified Nurses Day – March 19, 2017

Mar 1, 2017


Certified Nurses Day is a national day to honor and recognize the important achievements of Certified Nurses. 

Certified Nurses Day is March 19, the birthday of Margreta ‘Gretta' Madden Styles, the renowned expert of nurse credentialing. Styles designed the first comprehensive study of nurse credentialing and was an accomplished advocate for nursing standards and certification. Styles spent more than two decades advancing nursing practice and regulation. 

NCC recognizes the commitment and demonstrated expertise of the certified nurse. NCC has awarded more than 150,000 certifications to licensed health care professionals in the obstetric, neonatal and women's health care specialties and currently there are over 92,000 NCC certified nurses.

Nurses are probably the foremost providers of care throughout the health care system. . . . Nurses certified in their clinical specialties serve as agents of change and advocates of best practice for the patients they serve. -- Robin L. Bissinger, PhD, APRN, NNP-BC, FAAN, Executive Director of NCC.

NCC supports the commitment and expertise of certified nurses and has created multiple public awareness campaigns to bring much deserved recognition to NCC Certified Nurses. (Visit the NCC YouTube Channel)
