    Tina Owens

    BS, RN, CEN, CCRN, CRSN, CNML, MEDSURG-BC, NHDP-BC Buchanan General Hospital, Grundy, VA

    About Tina

    For over 40 years, Tina has been a nurse at Buchanan General Hospital, a stand-alone rural hospital in southwest Virginia. After being encouraged to earn the CEN by her nurse manager and mentor over 30 years ago, she has strived to pass it on by being a mentor for other nurses. When patients or nursing students ask Tina what CEN stands for, she proudly says: “The Best of Care.”

    From her bachelor’s degree thesis on the Utilization of Clinical Ladders to Build Strength and Confidence—with specialty certification being the key way to provide patients and families with validation that the nurse caring for them has demonstrated experience and knowledge in their specialty—to actively petitioning and working with her CEO and CNO for administration support of certification, Tina has epitomized Certified Emergency Nurse excellence and advocacy. As a result,  emergency and critical care nurses at BGH now enjoy robust encouragement and facility-provided financial support and incentives for specialty certification, and her colleagues credit her with impacting the culture of healthcare in their community.

  • 2024 Winner

    Jordan McAdam

    BSN, RN, CPEN Northern Navajo Medical Center, Shiprock, NM

    About Jordan

    Before the COVID pandemic, Jordan identified the need to improve pediatric response in her rural, 60-bed hospital when completing the facility’s EMSC Pediatric Readiness scoring. She started by taking and passing the CPEN exam herself, and then mentoring other nurses to do the same while working with leadership to ensure the availability of pediatric educational content and funding for certification.

    In her role as Pediatric Emergency Care Coordinator (PECC), Jordan lead efforts that saw the pediatric readiness score jump from 64 to 96 within a 3-year period, and the Northern Navajo Medical Center (NNMC) became the first in New Mexico to be recognized as Pediatric Ready by the New Mexico Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) and the University of New Mexico Child Ready Program. NNMC has one of the largest patient volumes in the Navajo Area Indian Health Service (NAIHS), which collectively delivers health services to over 244,000 American Indians in five Federal service units on and near the Navajo Nation.

    As her nominator wrote: “Jordan exemplifies what a certified nurse should be—an example of excellence, a mentor, and a champion for patient care.”

  • 2024 Winner

    Tyler Reeves

    RN, NRP, CFRN, CEN EagleMed, Great Bend, KS

    About Tyler

    Tyler began his nursing career in the ED of a small critical care access hospital in rural Kansas. His experience as an emergency nurse in a rural hospital gave him what he needed to pursue his dream job of flight nursing. After years of working in the ED, he accepted a job as a flight nurse with EagleMed flying on fixed wing aircraft, earned his CFRN, and then moved over to a new EagleMed rotor base in his hometown. Today, he serves as a clinical coach and the QA coordinator for that base.

    Through mentoring and clinical coaching, Tyler has oriented many new clinicians to flight medicine, incorporating CFRN content into their onboarding education to show them how to model their care and teach them best practices standards and then apply these in real patients in the flight environment. He makes himself available during work hours and after hours to answer questions and guide and share his vast collection of study materials as colleagues prepare to sit for the CFRN.

    To encourage and support crew members in maintaining their certifications, he extends invites to the many conferences he attends because, as he says, “Education is more enjoyable with friends.” He credits his own clinical coach who always put a heavy emphasis on advanced certification, and his coworkers, for their great help in their mutual educational journeys.

    About Jamin

    According to his colleagues at Ochsner LSU Health System and his industry peers, Jamin doesn’t just talk about certification in his professional field, he lives it every day. As a trauma program manager at a busy urban hospital, he led his facility to become a verified and state-designated trauma center, and has established different methods to maneuver well between pre-hospital and in hospital at all levels to improve communication and patient outcomes. He also organizes regional Rural Trauma Team Development Courses and serves as faculty. Locally, regionally, and nationally, he’s led, facilitated and/or helped secure funding for numerous traumatic and pediatric emergency courses for nurses and other healthcare professionals and on injury prevention topics for citizens of all ages in his local community.

    When he is introduced using the different certifications he holds, including the Trauma Certified Registered Nurse (TCRN), he invariably mentions to the audience that the prep work for the exam, sharing the knowledge, and reflecting the professionalism of certification on one’s resume is where the value lies.

  • 2023 Winner

    RWJBarnabas Health Emergency Departments

    Throughout New Jersey

    RWJBarnabas Health—whose 13 EDs and over 1,400 emergency nurses serve over 2 million patients per year—is extremely supportive of all nurses pursuing certification. That support has created a “CEN buzz” and buoyed the ED RN certification rate from 18% to nearly 25% in 12 months.

    When ED RNs start work, the concept of BCEN certification is introduced as a goal. Free Certified Emergency Nurse (CEN) review courses are offered to all EDs. Because the course was developed internally and ED Clinical Nurse Educators take turns teaching, no additional funding was required, and it promoted a collaborative effort across the health system. Discounted exam fees through BCEN Voucher purchases, advancement and leadership opportunities, mentorship and unconditional support are also keys.

    Reinvigorating Emergency RNs Post-Pandemic: We are finding that the staff are energized and excited about their accomplishments. There is an increased ED RN engagement in the RWJBH system.”

    The focus on professional development is “leading the RWJBH ED RNs back to their love of and commitment to emergency nursing, and … this is great for our patients.”

    The Bottom Line: “Certification is one of the keys to helping our nurses truly be the best that they can be.”

    Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital

    Roanoke, VA

    At Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, the BCEN certification rate among full-time staff within the ED, air medical transport program, and trauma-designated in-patient care areas is 29% and growing.

    A Culture of Excellence: Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital supports nurses in achieving specialty certification through continuing education, a clinical advancement program, exam preparation classes, and coverage of expenses for travel, lodging and exam fees. Recognition includes bonuses for initial certification and renewals, unit-level celebrations, and system-wide intranet “WOW Wall” posts.

    Homegrown Innovation: A home-grown, nurse-led TCRN Study Group was created to provide a safe space for nurses to learn more in-depth trauma care. The internally led, biweekly group covered a wide array of trauma topics over seven months, after which 14 nurses signed up to sit for the TCRN exam. As a result, there has been a 500% increase in TCRN certifications, with a 133% increase in certified nursing staff within the trauma PCU alone.

    Sparking Systemic Success: Can an organized program that provides directed education to a specific group of nurses improve the success of those nurses in completing the certification journey? Yes, it can! And based on the success of the TCRN Study Group, leadership is supporting additional study groups to support certification across units.
