The Woodlands Hospital is celebrating Certified Nurses Day by honoring its board certified nurses 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.

These nurses are being recognized for their professionalism, leadership, and commitment to excellence in patient care:

Kim Denson, Angela Johansson, Lauren Johnson,  Amanda Leigh Jordan, Myrna Munar, Lorrie Pool, Savannah Taymon, Sandra Brand, Cynthia Gibson, Linda Jobe, Laurie Martin, Liliana Covaliu, Andrew Brazil, Shannon Graham, Bonnie McCartney, Ryan David Orosz, Tracy Uribe, Christa Williams, Vernon Manangan, Angelique Norman, Jennifer Reagan, Kristen Ann Gohlke, Linda Jobe, Patricia McCraray, and Katy Riggs

Board Certification of nurses plays an increasingly important role in the assurance of high standards of care for patients and their loved ones. Nursing, like health care in general, has become increasingly complex. While a registered nurse (RN) license provides entry to general nursing practice, the knowledge-intensive requirements of modern nursing require extensive education, as well as a strong personal commitment to excellence by the nurse.
