SE4EO: That the organization has met goals for improvement in professional certification. Graphically summarize at least 2 years of data to display changes over time. Include participation of nurses in all specialties.

Over the past two years, we have accomplished and exceeded our established specialty certification goals. With the support of Ms. Rita Smith DNP, RN, CNO, NEA-BC, the number of nurses from various specialty areas attaining certification has increased dramatically. We set our goal for a minimum of 10 nurses attaining their specialty certification for the time period of July 2010 through June 2011. During 2010 through 2011, we had a large number of nurses retire. Regardless of this loss, we managed to exceed our goal of certified nurses. Due to our success, we doubled our goal to a minimum of 20 nurses’ attaining their certification for the time period of July 2011 through June 2012. We have doubled our goal for the time period of July 2011 through June 2012.
