2 become stroke certified.
St. Dominic's employees Adrian Thompson, CFNP, and Andrea Sterling, CFNP, recently became part of a select group of 800 nurses from across the country who have earned the Stroke Certified Registered Nurse certification through the American Board of Neuroscience Nursing.
The credential formally recognizes the attainment and demonstration of a body of knowledge necessary for the practice of stroke nursing beyond basic nursing preparation. Stroke nursing is the diagnosis and treatment of actual or potential patient responses to nervous system function and dysfunction across the healthcare continuum.
SCRN status is granted for five years and is renewed through validation of continuing education or re-examination.
