CMSRNs, How Will You Celebrate Certified Nurses Day on March 19?

Certified Nurses Day™ is an annual day of recognition for and by healthcare leaders dedicated to nursing professionalism, excellence, recognition, and service.

Every March 19, employers, certification boards, education facilities, and healthcare providers celebrate and publicly acknowledge nurses who earn and maintain the highest credentials in their specialty. Certified Nurses Day™ honors nurses worldwide who contribute to better patient outcomes through national board certification in their specialty.

We're super excited to celebrate our amazing Certified Medical-Surgical Registered Nurses (CMSRN) on this special day!

Make sure you follow us on social media (our channels are linked below), check your email, and stay on the lookout for cool surprises and announcements!

Here are just a few things you can do to get involved on the big day:

CMSRN Lapel PinTake Part in the #CMSRNPinDrop

Just use hashtag #CMSRNPinDrop when you post a picture  of you with your CMSRN lapel pin, and tell us one thing that you love about being a CMSRN! We'll be selecting several lucky pin-droppers throughout the day on March 19 for some really sweet surprises.  

Bring It During the Med-Surg Swag Share!  #CMSRNSwagShare 

Are you a CMSRN with lots of CMSRN, med-surg, or "I love med-surg nursing" swag? 

We see you over there in your "Med-Surg Nurse 4-Life" shirt. 

Just take a pic of you (or your pet ) wearing or holding your CMSRN pride item, and share it to your social media with #CMSRNSwagShare, and you could get a little special something from us.
