Celebrating CRRNs this 2021 Certified Nurses Day

Celebrate Certified Nurses Day

National Certified Nurses DayTM is an annual day of recognition for and by health care leaders dedicated to nursing professionalism, excellence, recognition, and service. Every March 19, employers, certification boards like the Rehabilitation Nursing Certification Board (RNCB), education facilities, and health care 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.

Join ARN and RNCB leaders in celebrating our more than 13,000 Certified Rehabilitation Registered Nurses (CRRNs®) this March 19

Members of the ARN and RNCB Boards of Directors collaborated on this special video message to wish each CRRN a happy Certified Nurses Day and to let them know how appreciated they are.
