Certified Rehabilitation Registered Nurse (CRRN) is a generalist certification for professional rehabilitation nurses. The certification is important because it encourages continued growth and development in the nurses' area of expertise—plus, it fosters a sense of pride and professionalism in the individual.
In 2007, there were four certified nurses at Burke. Today, all nursing administration/nursing management nurses have CRRN designation. In total, Burke currently employs approximately 50 CRRN staff members.
To help further the education of Burke nurses, in the spring of 2008, Burke offered its first CRRN Review Course. This three-day course is given by various disciplines discussing topics in their areas of expertise. It offers professional nurses a chance to learn and prepare for, or maintain, their CRRN Certification. Having the CRRN certification gives Burke's nurses a sense of accomplishment and dedication to their practice, which helps create better patient outcomes. And this, in turn, helps facilitate a better overall patient experience—something that all of us at Burke hope to achieve.
