Nursing, like health care in general, has become increasingly complex. While a registered nurse (RN) license provides entry to general nursing practice, the knowledge-intensive requirements of modern nursing require extensive education, as well as a strong personal commitment to excellence by the nurse.

Aspirus Medford encourages national board certifi cation for all its nurses. Please join Aspirus Medford and the nation’s national nursing certification organizations in honoring all hardworking and dedicated certified nurses for their professionalism and a job well done.
