March 19 is Certified Nurses Day

Attention all certified nurses! Did you know that March 19 is Certified Nurses Day? It’s an international day of recognition celebrating certified nurses’ contribution to the profession.

Certified Nurses Day was created by the American Nurses Credentialing Center and the American Nurses Association in 2008. It is held on March 19 to commemorate the birthday of Margretta‘Gretta’ Madden Styles, the renowned American nurse credentialing expert who advanced practice and regulation for more than two decades worldwide.

For Certified Nurses Day on March 19, we’re inviting all CNA-certified RNs to proudly wear their certification pins on that day. On social media, celebrate the day by using the “Proud to be CNA-certified” Facebook frame with a photo of yourself. Also, take a few moments to share your story about why you became nationally certified in your nursing specialty.

Don’t forget to use the #IamCNAcertifiedbecause: and tag us on our CAMSN facebook page so we can celebrate with you!
