Cindy Carreno, MS RN CRRN
Rehabilitation Nursing Consultant & Educator
ARN member since 2011
“I feel it is important to be a member of my specialty nursing organization. ARN has made it easy for me to stay current on what is happening in rehab and with legislation. It is important for me to be aware of changes in our field and to ensure we are always following best practices.”
Jynae Clapper, MSN RN CRRN
St. Luke's Rehabilitation Hospital
Director of Nursing and Patient Care Services
ARN member since 2013
“I joined ARN to network with rehab nursing experts and to learn how rehab units and hospitals practice. ARN provides a lot of continuing education, as well as tools that offer best practices. The annual ARN conference, peer networking, and on-going support from my ‘ARN family’ has helped me prepare my department for a successful CARF accreditation! Additionally, I was fortunate to have been selected as ARN’s representative for the Nurse in Washington Internship (NIWI), which has helped me expand my personal and professional knowledge in public policy and rehabilitation nursing advocacy!”

Hunter Holmes McGuire VA Medical Center
Member of the ARN Virginia Chapter
ARN member since 2008
“In 2007 I joined the rehabilitation team at the Veteran's Hospital in Richmond. I had no rehabilitation experience and I knew I needed to learn all I could as quickly as I could. I did a little research on the professional organization we know and love as ARN. As soon as I was eligible I became certified and encouraged others to do so. I have found the resources available through ARN to be extremely important in the development of my staff and my career. I can now proudly boast that at my facility we have increased our certified nurses to the point that we have more CRRNs than any other specialty!”
