Certified Nurses Day honors nurses worldwide who contribute to better patient outcomes through national board certification in their specialty. Certification is a milestone of personal excellence along the professional journey and affirms advanced knowledge, skill, and practice to meet the challenges of modern nursing.
The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) proposed March 19 as Certified Nurses Day to honor the birthday of the late Margretta “Gretta” Madden Styles, RN, EdD, FAAN. An international pioneer of nursing certification and longtime friend of AACN and AACN Certification Corporation, Styles designed the first comprehensive study of nurse credentialing. Many other nursing organizations participate in this initiative annually, including the American Association of Managed Care Nurses (AAMCN).
