Emergency nursing is more than a job. It’s more than a profession. It’s even more than a passion. It’s your calling. And your reasons for answering this calling are as unique and individual as you are. All of you want to help and care for others, but you do it in so many amazing ways. Some of you rush into disasters in the back of an ambulance. Some of you fly to danger without a thought for yourself. Some of you care for our most vulnerable population – our children. And some of you manage the chaos of a busy ED with limitless patience and grace.

However you do what you do, we want to hear why you do it!

I was a new graduate nurse coming from the EMS world. Lots of my coworkers didn't want to take me seriously. In less than a year, I was CEN certified, I later was one of the first 600 CPEN's, and returning to my roots I obtained my CTRN also. I believe it provides the best possible care and knowledge to serve our patients.

I decided to become certified when I found out the Emergency Department was the area that I am most passionate about. With my certification, my patients and families know that I am committed to progressing in my field and providing compassionate and excellent care.

I am currently working as a trauma nurse in the United States Army, serving in a combat support hospital overseas. I have been deployed to the Middle East to be employed in support of troops stationed in various countries, and every few years I relocate to serve as an emergency room nurse wherever the Army sends me. I love my profession, I love dedicating my life in service to others. My CEN allows me to serve with professionalism and dignity.

I started my emergency nursing career in the psychiatric ED and I love being able to provide comfort and care to the most vulnerable adult and pediatric patients. Obtaining BCEN certification has allowed me to enhance my professional skill set in providing high quality, evidence-based nursing care to all my patients.

I was once told by a great nurse who I look up to that your job does not own your resume, you do. That pushed me to earn extra certifications that have to do with what I deal with daily at work.

I decided to take the plunge and study for the CEN. After being a nurse for two and a half years, this was my first major step in becoming a flight nurse. I learned a TON while studying for this exam and plan to sit for more certifications soon.

I finally got the job I was dreaming of, a flight nurse, and I started looking for national certifications. When I met one of my peers for the first time they said I should get my CFRN. Challenge accepted. :) After I passed that one I thought it would be great to get another, then another, etc. I now have all five of them and have loved the trip so far.

The pride and satisfaction of knowing I have the knowledge to pass an exam. At 60, I still got it!

I became and remain certified to prove to myself and share with those who ask what those three letters mean that I am an emergency nurse at my core and passionate about my nursing role. I hunger to always know more so I can provide the BEST and most safe, EBP innovative care! As a Forensic Nurse Examiner and Flight Nurse, my patients deserve the most elite care possible and what I attain to maintain certification permits methe knowledge and skill to provide that.
